Batería de Castillitos, Spain

Just outside the city of Cartagena, Spain, lies an interesting and somewhat odd "castle" and battery called the Batería de Castillitos. When we were in Cartagena, we took the opportunity to drive up there to check it out and see some of the mount's amazing views. Read more

Cartagena, Spain

After a couple of days in our cave home in Guadix, Spain, we headed east to the city of Cartagena. Our purpose for this trip was to link up with Ang's folks, who would be stopping through with friends during their Mediterranean cruise. Read more

Guadix, Spain

We recently took a road trip to the city of Cartagena, Spain, to meet up with Ang's parents, who were on a Mediterranean cruise. We wanted to stop halfway between Seville and Cartagena, and the town of Guadix looked like an interesting spot to spend a couple of days. Read more

Seville, Spain: March 2018

I know, March 2018! Already a few months ago, which is rather disturbing. Stupid time and its flying. I wasn't going to write a post about this particular month in Seville because we didn't do much beyond hang out with friends and prep for a trip to the States, but after going over the pictures, I figured, Why not?

Matalascañas, Spain

Let's go to the beach! When our friends, Lena and Dom, came to visit from Germany recently, we took it upon ourselves to head down to the beach town of Matalascañas, Spain, as they wanted to see some sand and surf. Read more

Cordoba, Spain

It's been quite a while since our last visit to Cordoba, Spain. That was waaaay back in 2013 with our pal, Cat. I swore I wrote a post about that visit, but I can't find it! Good thing we returned! Ha. Read more

Trebujena, Spain

Yeah, we've done Trebujena before. Multiple times, in fact! Alas, as this is a journal of ours, we're going to post about it again. We went back to this village a few months ago when my sister and brother-in-law, Heidi and Ben, came to visit with their friends, Kim and Jerry. Read more

Malaga, Spain

As most of you who read this are Anglophones, I'm going to assume you've heard of Malaga. After all, it's one of the top destinations in Spain for expats, and what most people have heard of when they hear of the Costa del Sol. Nearby Marbella is a haven for the English-speaking and otherwise (German, Scandinavian, etc.) population, and Malaga is therefore the commercial hub of this region. Read...

Seville, Spain: February 2018

Hey there! So, as we mentioned in previous posts, we've decided to do round-ups of our months in Seville or wherever else we are. The mundane, the daily lives, the experiences, etc. As this is just as much - if not more - a journal as it is a blog, we thought it'd be a good idea to put our "where we currently live" things into blog posts instead of our usual penchant for only posting about...

Seville, Spain: January 2018

Happy New Year! I know it's already February, but I can't really write a round-up of our January before the end of the month, now, can I? =P As noted in my Seville December post, I've decided that it's a good idea to write about our more "mundane" lives as well. The lives we live when we're not traveling, what we do when we're "home," etc. Read more
