Once away from the holiday costas, you could only be in Spain. In the cities, narrow twisting old streets suddenly open out to views of daring modern architecture, while spit-and-sawdust bars serving wine from the barrel rub shoulders with blaring, glaring discos. Travel is easy, accommodation plentiful, the climate benign, the people relaxed, the beaches long and sandy, the food and drink easy to come by and full of regional variety. More than 50 million foreigners a year visit Spain, yet you can also travel for days and hear nothing but Spanish.

Back in Barcelona

Wed, 15 Mar 2023 | By graynomadsusa | Views [15]

Time for Málaga

Tue, 10 Jan 2023 | By graynomadsusa | Views [45]

THE HOLIDAY DECORATIONS WERE STILL UP on Calle Marqués de Larios, turning Malaga’s oh-so-classy pedestrian mall into a magic fairyland. And it was just as beautiful in daylight. Our AirBnB was right in the heart of it all. It turned out ... Read more >

Cabalgata de los Reyes Magos (Parade of the Three Kings)

Thu, 5 Jan 2023 | By graynomadsusa | Views [48]

SHOULD WE DRIVE OR TAKE THE BUS into Córdoba? that was the question. I even downloaded bus schedules and made a list of possible parking lots. In the end we decide to walk in—it’s only 3½ miles, mostly downhill—and take ... Read more >

Around Córdoba

Wed, 4 Jan 2023 | By graynomadsusa | Views [35]

WITH PARKING BEING SO SCARCE and expensive, we decided to stay a bit outside of Córdoba’s historic center. Maria José’s exquisite AirBnB is one of the nicest yet, even if it’s too cold to use the pool. While she doesn’... Read more >

Sun, 1 Jan 2023 | By graynomadsusa | Views [45]

JUST LIKE CHRISTMAS EVE IN MADRID, many of Toledo’s attractions closed at 1PM on the 31 st and will remain closed on New Years Day. We managed visit the Church of El Salvador before closing time. El Salvador has been in turn, Roman, perhaps ... Read more >

Returning to Toledo

Fri, 30 Dec 2022 | By graynomadsusa | Views [35]

MY TIRED FEET WERE GLAD to say good-bye to Madrid—walking 6 to 8 miles on cobbles really took a toll. But they shouldn’t get their hopes up—Toledo may not have as many cobbles but the narrow streets and alleys are seldom flat! ... Read more >

Christmas in Madrid

Sun, 25 Dec 2022 | By graynomadsusa | Views [40]

T’WAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS . . . and Santa didn’t come! It wasn’t that Rudolph got lost or Santa couldn’t find us again or, heaven forbid, we were naughty, not nice! Saint Nick just doesn’t bring presents to good little ... Read more >
