This post is a round up post from our latest travels to Andalusia, region in Spain in June 2016. 

It also has been our second visit to Spain, at the end of 2014 we explored another region here - Catalonia, see My Spain + Andorra Travel Guide

Spain definitely is a country worth to visit and explore slowly (region after region). Now, looking back on our travels across Andalusia - amazing.

In short in 7 days we visited 5 countries (Latvia, Germany, Spain, Gibraltar and Norway). With most of the time spent in Spain. Our Spain part trip started and ended at Malaga. We rented a nice car there and headed through the beaches of Costa del Sol towards city of Cadiz, enjoyed finest Iberian steak at Jerez. Visited small town fairs. Wandered around city of Seville and last but not least discovered beauty of amazing rock formations at El Torcal.

There are two things I will remember the most - That fine Iberian steak mix at Meson del Asador Restaurant in Jerez de la Frontera and our search for El Torcal

​Not to speak more, here are 46 places from our trip
