Spain Trip 2011 (Andalucia,Madrid)

In South Africa it is tradition to go on a vacation with your friends after you’ve completed your final year of school. My friend and I chose to go to Spain since she knew people there who would provide accommodation and who could show us around.

We went from the 5th to the 21st of December and visited the cities of Jaen, Cordoba, Sevilla and Granada in Andalucia and Madrid at the end. All in all this was an amazing trip and I would love to return to Spain in the future

I'll be posting pictures in groups of more or less 15 pics per post and will try to divide it into days. There will be a short summary of each day followed by photos.

The first day we arrived in Frankfurt and then Madrid. There wasn't a lot of time to take pictures since we had to go to the Renfe train station to board our train to Jaen. We only arrived when it was dark already. The next day we walked a bit through Jaen and then went to Ubeda and Baeza for lunch and to do some sightseeing.

I like the way even small towns in Spain like Ubeda and Baeza have 4-6 storey buildings as the norm in and around their centres.

I do as well! In my city of 300 000 people we have less than 10 buildings taller than 5 stories..

We have the same tradition here in the US, me and 2 - 3 of my friends will be going to Florida this summer. It's just an 8 hour drive and I would much prefer to go to Europe but you take what you can get.

Great pics btw

Nope, it was a bit expensive to go to the North and we only had 17 days. I'll return again in the next few years to do the North and Barca

Oops, I realised that as well. I'll edit the titles quickly
