So other than being totally into photographing people and shooting boudoir, I LOVE to travel. Seriously. L.O.V.E.
If I could just travel to the far reaches of the world with my camera taking pictures of people, buildings, colors, I’d be in heaven.
Hence, the introduction of Wanderers Wednesday!! Along with my normal posts on portrait and boudoir photography, I’ll be posting every other week about traveling. Whether it be my personal travels, both around the world or locally, other cool people who have fun travel resources, and tips and tricks to make the most of your travel plans.
To start off this Wanderers Wednesday, it’s all about Southern Spain!
My boyfriend and I went to Marbella, Spain a few months ago and had an amazing time. Neither of us had been to Spain before so it was a new experience for both of us.
A few things that stood out to us about Spain:
People – The people that we came across in Spain were amazingly helpful and friendly. You’re never going to find everyone to be happy go lucky, but we were quite amazed by how friendly they were.
Case in Point: We had our car towed in Ronda. What can I say. We thought we knew what the posted sign meant (we were wrong). After flagging down a cop and trying in vain to explain, a lady came up to us who spoke English. She helped us translate and figure out where the heck we had to go to get our poor little rental car back. Thank god for GPS and small cities!! Once there the place was closed but a neighbor came out and called the pager of the attendant who came in 30 minutes. Cool beans!!
History – There is soooo much history surrounding Spain and Europe as a whole. There were ruins, castles, churches…all of which were hundreds of years old. I love old buildings and the history behind them.
Food – Paella. Need I say more? …….I do? Ok, all the food was great. Seafood, tapas, wine, cappuccinos. I’m starting to drool just thinking about it.
Nightlife – People can party. I don’t know how they can go to work the next day when they don’t even eat until 9 or 10 at night and decide to go out to the clubs afterwards. One of the main areas we visited was Puerto Banus where evidently a lot of the rich and famous go to party and hang out. It was expensive but we found good deals and great food.
