I realize my trip to Spain was over a week and a half ago, but I still want to share some of my favorite photos with you. I could probably spend an entire week sharing photos and talking about the trip, but I think it's time to move on. Anyway, you can check out the rest of my photos here.
Meet Allison, one of my friends from BU. Allison has a sort of effortless style that I definitely admire. I love how she always manages to look super chic, whether in an all black ensemble, or dare I say it, her newly purchased mink coat.
We enjoyed our first Paella/Sangria lunch at the top of the Castillo de Gibralfaro, a place whose name I only remember because of this photo. Though paella traditionally includes seafood, I opted for the vegetarian dish and thoroughly enjoyed it. The Sangria was great too. My favorite ingredient: cinnamon sticks!
Too funny, right? I took tons of photos of this little guy running on the beaches of Marbella. There were so many cute dogs in Spain, although there are definitely more here in London!
We must have gone to the local grocery store, Super Sol, about a million times. They had tons of great food there along with some extremely cheap wine that perfectly complimented our brie and baguette. Some of the packaging made me laugh a little, like the "Bimbo" bread and some item in a box that had a label in braille. Seriously, if it's the only item in the store with a braille label, how is that helpful?
I absolutely love rainbows. Maybe it's because they're so rare, or because I've associated them with miracles ever since I learned the story of Noah's Ark. Did you know there's even a special blessing you're supposed to say when you see one? Of course, I never remember it, but I always think about it when I see a rainbow.
Walking around the Castillo de Gibralfaro reminded me so much of the City of David in Jerusalem. Although the views were quite different, walking around the fortress made me nostalgic for the old city and its history.
I entitled this photo "heavenly" because there is just something so unearthly about those clouds. The photo was taken on the way up to the Castillo de Gilbralfaro and shows the diverse mix of trees, tall buildings and coastal construction equipment in the Malaga skyline.
Again, you can see the rest of my Spain photo set here.
