The story behind these photos aqui.
Following a train and ferry from Africa to Europe, then hopping a bus to Malaga, I looked particularly homeless this evening. And my feet were very cold.
We stumbled into the hotel at midnight, Barcelo Malaga, and a couple of glasses of wine and a slide more than made up for our long journey (I was forced to wear a GoPro.)
GOOOOOAL! And with that, we hit the road, waving goodbye to Malaga and driving east along the southern coast of Spain. No plans, no reservations. Just looking for great little beaches and towns. (I’d always wanted to do this.) Vamos.
I spent a lot of time here.
I cannot understand why girls’ golf clubs are always lavender or pink or some other shade of pastel. It is one of life’s greatest mysteries.
FRIGILIANA. Love this place so much. Again rolled in late at night, and again wine fixes everything.
Next up: San Jose, just outside of Almeria, in the southeast corner of Espana.
Time to head up to Jesus Pobre, a little town in Costa Blanca, halfway between Alicante and Valencia, to visit my Tita Gwen.
Did I mention there are five official languages in Spain? CINCO.

I feel like I traveled with you in your little white car through all the colorful towns and that I walked on the sandy beaches, enjoying those delicious clams. So happy you spent some time with Tita Gwen, who looks sassy as ever.

That church looks amazing! I love seeing all the bright blue doors too – we were just in Cabo, and our favorite restaurant had bright blue doors as well! Makes me want to paint ours! Enjoy – love seeing the world through your adventure!
Great color on those doors, so vibrant. Beautiful shots of casa Blanca. …

Summing up my feelings for this latest edition…From my favorite Sinatra song…”…all summer long we sang a song and then we strolled that golden sand…two sweethearts and the summer wind. Like painted kites, those days and nights, they went flying by…the world was new beneath the bright blue-umbrella sky….”
Enjoy each and every day of wonder!
Why don’t we live here?? The painted doors and the geranium flowers on the walls are my favs! Tied with you staring down the plate of shrimp. Miss you. it all looks so amazing and wonderful! Xoxo safe travels
