Spain stands apart from its European neighbors. A warm nation with a culture that values relaxed living (Siestas) but also knows how to party (botellón). Its a unique culture the Spanish are proud of and many people the world over envy. If you asked an outsider to imagine Spain, they would conjure images of Flamenco, tapas and bullfights. They’re likely picturing the South of Spain – Andalucia.I try not to qualify what is “authentically” Spanish”, each face of a Country makes it what it is. Popular destinations will always attract outside visitors, a place and its people are always in flux as modernisation marches foward. That said, there’s certainly a different flavor to the Andalucia region that separates it from its more modern, international counterparts Barcelona and Madrid.
There’s nothing like the comfort of a good view and old friends.
