Rock of Gibraltar

Rock of Gibraltar

After almost three weeks of running around Spain, I am finally back in North American.

The last few weeks have been rather hectic. I arrived in Barcelona on the 12th and immediately took the train to Valencia where I met my friend Joantxo with Valencia Tourism who drove me to the palm covered city of Elche.

I had been in Elche briefly back in 2010 but this time I was able to explore more of the town and and visit some of the attractions in the city.

From there I rented a car and drove to the city of Granada by way of the small towns of Ubeda and Bezes, both of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In Granada I visited the Alhambra before setting off by bus to Cordova.
