Jamikins and Bikerscott in Andalusia

Hola Foderites

Currently sitting in a lovely plaza in Sevilla sipping cool Andalusian white wine - does life get any better??

In the last week we have spent 4 nights just outside of Ronda and visited some white villages and Cadiz, and are in the middle of 5 nights in Sevilla. We have fallen in love with southern Spain! Next week we are spending 3 nights in Córdoba and 3 nights in Granada.

I have uploaded the first weeks pictures and will update more as we go!

Happy travels!

Gorgeous photos. Isn't that area beautiful. I have some of those same shots that I had printed and are hanging on my wall right now. Cordoba and Granada are just as great. I'm impressed that you are able to get your photos on line while you are still there. I'm just now finishing my TR/photos from my trip to northern Spain and that was in July!

How's the weather - looks like great sunshine but how are the temperatures?

Thanks Isabel - can't wait to see your photos!

It's hotter than expected! Mid 30 degrees Celsius in the afternoon! Not complaining!!

Great photos and sounds like you are enjoying Andalucía!

One tip: Plain fabulous flamenco dancers tomorrow night and Monday night in La Casa del Flamenco, right in the heart of the Santa Cruz district. No Food, no drinks, just some 60 minutes flamenco, both song, guitar and male and female dancer: http://www.lacasadelflamencosevilla.com/ http://www.lacasadelflamencosevilla....genda_completa

One of my top favourites Juan José Jaén Arroyo "El Junco" from Cádiz dances tomorrow, Sunday (and the same, brilliant guitarist, El Perla): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sENoCuTQYPs

And very traditional style Luisa Palicio from Málaga dances on Monday night. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fghQGpUmm3E

Don't mind me, I'm just here for the photos...

No, seriously, how do you do that? Always wonderful. I was scrolling through your Tuscany photos yesterday, thinking Italy might be nice next year, and now Andalusia (a place I'm not sure I could find on a map) is seducing me. Just lovely. Have a fantastic trip!

Thanks everyone!

Just finished a refreshing g&t (just for you maitai!)

We went to a fabulous flamenco show on Wednesday...loved it enough to book one in Granada next week!

We stayed here outside Ronda and loved it...great location and wonderful accommodations. http://www.la-perlablanca.com

In Seville we have an amazing apartment overlooking the cathedral...highly recommend it! https://www.genteel-home.com/seville...thouse-seville

Happy to answer any questions!

Hope dropping in is ok? We're in Jerez now just arrived from Oz flying via Barcelona. Well pick up a car in a few days and start slowly making our way up Spain. Thought we'd opt for somewhere a bit less touristy than Ronda maybe Zahara or Arcos..enjoyed your tips, please keep em coming.

Zahara looked quite small from a distance, we liked Ronda as it was a fair size but are glad we stayed outside. Argos is very close to Jerez, not sure it would be worth a move?

Hi Karen

We did the evening flamenco and tapas tour here

http://azahar-sevilla.com/tapas-tours/flamenco-tapas/

It was amazing, we had front row seats then went to two amazing tapas places. There are lots of places around the city offering flamenco, and I am sure the ones kimhe recommends are great too but we really enjoyed our experience!
