We had a wonderful holiday in Southern Spain,  just outside a small town called Álora, in the hills about 45 minutes inland from Malaga.

It was so relaxing exploring the countryside and the towns. From the charm of ancient Antequera… antequera2   …with its cool Moorish-themed courtyards…

antequera…to the wild pine-scented mountains…

malagaronda-newbridge…and the sheer wonder of the Puente Nuevo (New Bridge, completed in 1793) in Ronda.

We’d thoroughly recommend the area to anyone needing a relaxing break.

It was strange trying to pick up our few words and phrases of Spanish after many years, and we nearly launched out in French a few times by mistake!

Thank you, Lord, for refreshing us so amazingly.
