We spend the second week of our vacation in Seville and Cordoba. We took it very slow as it was 40 degrees and way too hot to do basically anything (can’t really believe that anymore with this fall weather lately).
Walking around in Seville
These trees were everywhere in Spain. I thought it looked quite nice.
Obviously some selfies had to be taken
These people were unbelievable I thought. They are all waiting for Alcazar but it is the middle of the day, which means you’re basically melting if you’re standing in direct sunlight for too long.
Taking siestas is the way to go here
The third stop of our trip was Jerez de la Frontera. However, the city was super quite. So after the first day of wandering around we decided to go after the Spanish people and visit Cádiz. Cádiz is a little town near the beach. Christopher Columbus sailed from Cádiz on his second and fourth voyages to America, which made the town very rich.

Really nice pancakes in Cadiz
Finding the shadow
There was a huge fishmarket during the day
See you in… Sevilla!
Ronda is a pittoresque town, just an hour away from Malaga. It is famous for its ‘Puento Nuevo’, a bridge over a 91 meter deep canyon. Because it is more land inwards, it was already a lot hotter here then in Malaga, but we decided to walk down to the bottom of the bridge anyways. A nice walk and a marvelous view!

How beautiful is this view
Selfie-worth of course
Spanisch houses all have bars at the lower windows
Back in the center
From a rainy Netherlands we literally stepped into a Spanish sauna when we got off the plane. Two weeks of bare legs, no jackets and lots of sun. We made a roundtrip through the south of Spain, starting in Málaga.

We visited Alcazaba, a Moorish palace-fortress
The view from up there was really stunning
Of course we needed some sugar
This is probably the closest we’ve got to a beach in our whole vacation
