I visited Spain three years ago and saw four different areas of the country. There are still other areas of Spain I would like to see such as Barcelona, but I do feel like I saw a pretty good cross-section of the country. I'm writing this post from memory so I'm afraid it won't be as detailed as if I had written it three years ago after the trip.
I started out in Malaga which is in the southern part of the country and made day trips to the rock of Gibraltar and to a charming beach town called Nerja. While visiting these three areas I was fortunate enough to have my high school friend join me who now know lives in Sweden. She was a very good tour guide as she knows how to drive in Europe which I never would have dared to do by myself. Of course having a great friend from way back join me made the trip 10 times more fun. We would have enjoyed the trip no matter where we were!
After leaving Malaga I went to Madrid for a few days. As some of you may know, I am not much of a city person and Madrid is a very large city in my opinion. I thought the architecture and buildings were beautiful and I learned a lot about the history of the country by going on a tour.
The rock of Gibraltar was fascinating to see. The monkeys were so much fun. They were not aggressive at all compared to the ones I saw in Bali.
From what I have seen in Spain so far I would say that the beach town, Nerja, was my favorite. It's definitely an area I would love to go back and visit. I thought it was really beautiful, clean not a very big town with still plenty to do.
My photos are not the best either I didn't have any knowledge of photography at the time I have tried to improve them but that is hard to do without a raw file. I had no idea what to take photographs of or how to take them and definitely not how to edit them. That is something that I am working at getting better at now.
Here are some photos of the rock of Gibraltar and a concert hall inside it:

I thought the babies were adorable!
The following few photos are of the southern section of the country called Malaga. The following is a photo of the marina. There are a lot of nice restaurants and shops. It was a great place to have lunch and dinner.
