We just came back from our holidays in Spain and had a blast. We wanted to take it easy, so we went to Andalucía, in the south of Spain.

Driving from Madrid, our first stop was a picnic in El Real de la Jara, by the river. We then arrived to our accommodation at Finca La Fronda in Alájar. We can't thank the Wordsworth family enough for treating us like kings during our stay!


Toledo is an ancient city set on a hill above the plains of Castilla-La Mancha in central Spain. It’s known for the medieval Arab, Jewish and Christian monuments in its walled old city. It was also the former home of Mannerist painter El Greco. The Moorish Bisagra Gate and the Sol Gate, in Mudéjar style, open into the old quarter, where the Plaza de Zocodover is a lively meeting place.
