Andalucia

Andalucia

Thanks for coming back once again to my travel and tourism blog folks. It is really humbling to have such a loyal and friendly readership and it really inspires me to keep coming up with fresh ideas to share with you guys. This post is going to be about an area of Spain where I spent a few months hanging out this time last year. I absolutely fell in love with the place. The area is known as Andalusia and sits on Spain’s southern Mediterranean coast. The capital city of Andalusia is Seville, but is also home to other great historic cities such as Malaga and Greneda.  I personally flew into Malaga and then caught a bus to the small seaside town of Almunecar, where I based myself for the duration of my trip. Almunecar, and Andalusia as a whole, is steeped in history and draws huge cultural and architectural influence from Moorish rule from the 8th to 15th centuries. The cuisine is largely based around a fresh fish diet due to proximity to the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean and local tradition of free tapas with every drink is still practised by the majority of eateries! The thought process behind this is that it allows customers to sample a restaurant's cooking free of charge with the aim of enticing them back for a larger meal at a later time or date. The whole town and its people had a charm about it that I can’t quite put my finger upon. All I know is that I felt very at home there and I can’t wait to go back. I would love to possibly make the town my home, but who knows how Brexit will affect those aspirations? Anyway folks, if you are ever in Spain, be sure to visit Andalucia. And if you are ever in Andalucia, be sure to visit Almunecar. Tell the guys at La Tralla restaurant I said hola! Bye for now!

Take care folks! Speak soon!
