In the streets of Córdoba, in southern Spain, you may find yourself among orange and palm trees, staring at Moorish archiecture. In other words, with one foot in a familiar continent, Europe, and the other in another,  exotic continent, Africa. #travel #spain #backpacking #Spain #Andalusia #cordoba #memories #trip #intagram #igerspain

I'm already back in Barcelona, but here's another picture of San Sebastian's fiery sunsets over Playa de la Concha, which means"seashell beach"(obviously because of its shape). #travel #backpacking #spain #instasunset #sansebastian #donostia #basquecountry #paisvasco #sunset #trip #instagram #igersspain
Bilbao is a city of bridges. There is the famous Calatrava's Zubizuri footbridge with its white "rays" and La Salve bridge next to Guggenheim museum wirh its red gate. And then others, of all shapes and colours. They are all relatively new because the old ones where blown up during the civil war. #travel #backpacking #basquecountry #paisvasco #bilbao #spain #bridge #trip #sightseeing

For the laws of karma, it's raining cats and dogs today. Thank God for a place called Guggenheim Museum! #travel #backpacking #art #bilbao #basquecountry #paisvasco #guggenheimmuseum
This rugged cliff speaks Euskadi... #travel #backpacking #spain #basquecountry #basque #paisvasco #nature #sea #cliff
I was skeptical too, but the pintxos in San Sebastián are at another level. 😍🍽🍢🍤Sometimes they mix cured meats (like jamón) with fish and seafood like anchovies, prawns or octopus. You can turn up your nose if you want, the 16 Michelin stars of San Sebastián will do the same! 😜
Seeing on the web all these pics of San Sebastián from above, I never thought I could easily admire the same bird's view. Instead, by taking the funicolar to Monte Igueldo you see all the bay. Really beautiful! #travelling #spain #backpacking #sansebastian #donostia #basquecountry #viewpoint #panorama #beach
This year's big trip having been postponed, I opted for a few days in the Basque Country. This is how the beach in San Sebastián looks like today and it's the 2nd November... 😃 #travelling #backpacking #spain #basquecountry #sansebastian #donostia #beach #paisvasco
The works of Gaudi are the most famous example of "modernist architecture" in Barcelona, but one of my favourite buildings of this style is Casa Comalat. I love those curved balconies, really original!
