Lindsay and Gregg
We're headed to the Western Mediterranean! Woohoo!! We'll ferry over to Morocco for a few days in Tangiers and Chefchaouen the Blue City before we head back to Spain. From our home base in Mijas we'll explore Ronda, Seville, Grenada (and the Alhambra!), a nearby national park, and Gibraltar. Southern Spain is famous for its sherry, so we'll be certain to do some tastings while we're there. And, finally, after all that adventure, we hope to take some substantial time to slow down and relax to the sounds of the Mediterranean Sea--which thankfully will be right outside our door! One of the criteria for us as we explored honeymoon destinations was that we wanted to go somewhere neither of us has ever been, so it would be new for both of us. As you might imagine, this was a pretty challenging task! Spain came up early on and then faded to the background. It resurfaced again in conversation with others who have traveled there before, and it stuck. Thanks to a very generous gift, our accommodations in Spain are taken care of--so now we just have to get there and figure out what to do. :) We are so thankful for the community we have and the opportunity to celebrate this moment together. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!Morocco Granada, Spain Zurich, Switzerland Tarifa, Spain Spain
We're hitting 2 continents this trip! We'll head across the Straight of Gibraltar from Southern Spain to Morocco by ferry.
What visit to Southern Spain would be complete without a visit to the great Moorish palace of Alhambra?
Spain has incredible wine, and southern Spain is famous for its Sherry. We'll do our best to experience a little of both.
Our flight home includes a rather long stopover in Zurich. Rather than spend 22 hours in the airport, we're headed into the city to see what we can see!
A suitcase that becomes a backpack--of course! Not only does the suitcase itself become a backpack, it has a detachable daypack to boot! This will come in handy while walking the narrow streets o...
We'll rent a car and scoot up to Grenada for the day. We know it won't be enough time to take it all in, but we still want to see what we can!
From our base in Mijas del Costa we plan on touring around the southern coast of Spain including Gibraltar, Marbella, Ronda and a nearby national park.
After we land in Malaga we'll head to Tarifa for the night before heading south across the Straight of Gibraltar to Tangier.
We'll celebrate Gregg's 45th with a night in Tangier: wandering the medina and getting our fill of couscous before crashing for the night in one of the oldest hotels in Tangier.
