Paseo Balcón de Europa, 1, 29780 Nerja, Málaga, Spain
Wandering around the small Mediterranean town of Nerja, Andalucia, Spain, gave me a sense of life there. I looked at the windows and doors, trying to capture a glimpse of what the homes looked like. But, often just seeing what the door looked like...

Plaza los Terceros, 41003 Sevilla, Spain
Unlike Granada the tapas in Seville do not come free with your drink, however they can be worth their price. My favorite tapas spot has become "La Huerta" in plaza Teceros, or the bar with the blue tables. My favorite dishes are Bunuelos de la...
Calle Manuel Rojas Marcos, 3, 41004 Sevilla, Spain
My favorite museum in Seville is the Flamenco Museum. It has a fascinating history of flamenco dancing in southern Spain and there a terrific series of short films showing the different styles of flamenco. There are also romantic old posters of...
Plaza América, 3, 41013 Sevilla, Spain

Calle Ruedo Doña Elvira, 16, 29400 Ronda, Málaga, Spain
My friends and I took a day trip to Ronda, a small city about 60 miles outside of Sevilla. It is known for its breathtaking views and bridges on a gorge. After exploring the town, we grew hungry and stumbled across this small bar. It was full of...
Calle Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente, 11, 11688 Zahara, Cádiz, Spain
While on a road-trip through Andalusia, we spent a day exploring the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park. The twisting mountain roads took our breath away at regular intervals. The region is famous for its Peublos Blancos (or white villages). One was...

Calle Atarazanas, 19, 29005 Málaga, Spain
To market, to market—that’s where you should go when you feel like catching a glimpse of the true, gritty essence of a place. Market folk don’t care what you think of their city. Market folk don’t dress in their Sunday best. They don’t speak...
Carrer de Pau Claris, 192, 08037 Barcelona, Spain
This summer, I spent a few days in Barcelona. Of course, any trip of mine is always highlighted by the many restaurants I visit. In Barcelona, I ate at these 6 outstanding tapas bars, each offering a different vibe and a different attitude. Bar...
El Raval, Barcelona, Spain
Barcelona is fast becoming a street-art haven. Long since a capital of creativity and modernity, today some of the most beautiful example's of daily life are seen not within the museum doors, but painted on vacant buildings, trash cans, or...
Av. del Professor López Piñero, 7, 46013 València, Valencia, Spain
The city of Arts and Sciences in Valencia is truly out of the world. Right adjacent to a historic, gothic city core is the modern, space-aged space. The juxtaposition of the two can seem odd, but somehow, Valencia pulls it off. Walking around the...
Carrer del Consell de Cent, 292, 08007 Barcelona, Spain
Make sure to sample some hot drinking chocolate in Barcelona. I chose a mug from Cacao Sampaka, a gourmet chocolate shop where you'll find all sorts of delightful dessert concoctions. The rich, velvety drink is nothing like American hot chocolate....
