If I had to pinpoint the absolute pinnacle of my European travels, I’d almost certainly be considering Andalusia in Southern Spain. Based in the enchanting city of Malaga, I spent countless weekends exploring the region over the course of a year between March 2016 and 2017.

Looking back, there were so many highlights. In terms of majesty and splendour, it’s hard to pick a favourite between The Alhambra Palace in Granada, The Mezquita mosque cathedral in Córdoba and the sweeping expanse of Plaza de España in Seville.

Moreover, I toured the tiny hilltop villages and the underrated towns. I also crossed off the beaches of The Costa del Sol, hiked the incredible landscapes of El Caminito del Rey and saw the whitewashed, moorish architecture of Frigiliana.
