Snap of the Day – The Village

Still in lockdown, and the frustrating thing is that we don't know until when... Bars, restaurants, and non-essential stores are closed. And we still cannot leave our hometown. On top of it all, I have an inflammation of my shoulder and neck muscles. Quite painful, and I haven't been able to do any writing for …

Snap of the Day – Sierra Magina

And... we are in (partial) lockdown... again. Until yesterday, we could drive around all Andalusia. From today on we can't leave our hometown. This lockdown will at least last a week and then the situation will be reviewed. Let's hope this nightmare ends soon! Yesterday, when we could still make an excursion, we went to …

Snap of the Day – Blue

The snow from Sunday has already become a memory... Temperatures have gone up, and we now have lots of sunshine and blue sky. Is this a sign that spring is on its way? Yesterday, the Viking had a craving for Danish food. So, off we went to Fuengirola (province of Malaga) and spent almost 50 …

Snap of the Day – The Lovely Forest

Unfortunately, we have to start this post with some bad news. Just before the weekend, the Ayuntamiento of Iznalloz announced on its Facebook page that there are 6 new cases here of the COVID-virus. You might think that this is a low number - after all, our hometown only has about 7.000 inhabitants. But during …

Snap of the Day – The Road to Monachil

We have returned from Cordoba... Although we didn't spend as much time as we had foreseen in the capital itself, we have had a splendid time in a small part of the province. Of course, we celebrated the Viking's birthday in style! With a meal that included one of Cordoba's famous specialties... In the second …

Snap of the Day – Looking for Ruins

Finding this location and then the ruins themselves was a bit of a challenge, both for the driver (the Viking) and the photographer (yours truly). But it's always rewarding when you find what you are looking for. Even more when you discover that you are actually surrounded by some really stunning landscapes! And now some …

Snap of the Day – A Unique Landscape

Come to think of it, August has been a month of exploring extraordinary and even unique landscapes... For this one, you need to go to the province of Malaga, not far from the capital itself and Antequera. We were so impressed with this location that we have planned to come back when it's cooler, so …

Snap of the Day – An Architectural Gem

Sometimes we did see some beautiful castles, like this one... Moreover, it has also been a month of some unexpected and spectacular discoveries. September …

Snap of the Day: Another Day, Another Sierra

I think this is the first summer that I have spent so much time in the mountains or at least in mountainous areas. And I am loving every second of it! Anyway, I took this picture somewhere in the province of Almeria. Does anyone know where exactly?

Snap of the Day – Embalse de Colomera

With the heatwave going on at the moment here in Spain, one of the "coolest" places is our airconditioned car. Maybe it sounds weird or lazy, but it's rather comfortable to be driving along beautiful landscapes in a cold vehicle! At regular intervals, I will jump out of the car though, and take pictures. Anyway, …
