My Spain adventure started in Malaga, where I met Ralph and we rented a little car.
I marked the places with red arrows.
We drove along the coast and had an ice cream and look around in Benalmadena Puerto where many yachts are ankered.
A bit further up north we looked at the Stupa Buddist Temple, and the view from there was breathtaking.
We stopped by a Butterfly house with amazing beautiful butterflies.
The next day we visited Ronda, a bigger more touristy town.

Another day we were visiting friends and having a party. More of the party here.
By a friend’s pool
We drove amazing very winding mountain roads and visitied typical Spanish villages and a cork forest.
Amazing views from the mountain roads
Our reliable car
On my last day we all helped with the grape harvest.
One of Ralph’s friends has a vineyard and the grapes were ripe. It was so much fun! More here.
My favourite chair:
The mountain view
The beautiful road into Ralph’s village
and again such beautiful flowers everywhere.
I saw places, tourists see, I saw sleepy little villages, I went through roads not many tourists drive and could mix and smile at friendly Spanish people, as well as meeting and mixing with friends of Ralph.
I enjoyed being part of the community there and saw how life is in Spain.
All in all a wonderful holiday and I loved everything!
When you arise in the morning,
think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive
