Andalucia 2015 Day Five and Six

Cordoba!

Today we had planned a drive up to Cordoba.  We wanted to visit the Mezquita and I had tickets for the noon horse show at the Royal Stables in Cordoba, founded in 1570.  Being Kentuckians, we can only go so long without a horse or a bourbon!  Anyway, we got up early and got to Cordoba with no problems.  (Let it be noted that I have and used both a Garmin and Google maps on this trip, as well as paper maps, and we still got turned around sometimes.  A fact of life,…

Day Four Andalucia-Local Villages

We decided it would be fun to drive around in the local country and explore the villages of Rute and Iznajar.  Juan, our wonderful landlord, had furnished us with grapes from the vine in the courtyard.  It was time to cut the vines back and he saved us some of the most delicious, sweet white grapes.  We took them on every picnic!  Anyway, armed with our maps and Garmin, we set off for Iznajar, driving the most spectacular scenery roads along the way.  They were harvesting some olives at one…

Days Two and Three in Andalucia 2015

Andalucia 2015

Day One In Andalucia

We arrived in Malaga on time and ready to explore, and were met at the gate by our driver, who turned out to be Alexandra, Maria's assistant.  She helped us to handle all the details of car rental and then carefully drove us almost two hours to our chosen Untours rental, Posada Real in Priego de Cordoba.  We decided on the village location because we wanted to be close to shops and restaurants, and we were entirely satisfied with our decision.  Priego is a…

Recent trip to Barcelona

First of all, Barcelona is a great place to visit, and we had our usual wonderful experience with Untours.  Our transportation from the airport was seamless, although we had to wait a couple of hours before we could get into the apartment.  Even when we got in, we had to wait for the cleaning staff to finish, so it was after noon when we were finally able to settle in and take a little rest.

 

My husband and I stayed in the Catalunya Suites for two weeks, and the location…

Quebec tip

Just returned from another happy visit to Quebec.  For any Louise Penny (Three Pines mysteries) fans, the Bury Your Dead tour from Tours Voir Quebec is an excellent walking tour that includes a slice of yummy sugar pie.
