Nerja Caves and Homemade Gelato!

After a wonderful couple days in Malaga, I went the famous Nerja caves, which contain some of the oldest relics in Spain.  They were huge and damp and low lit to give the mood of super villain’s secret lair of dastardly deeds.  The beehive maze of caverns had been used as sacred burial grounds and I could image a high-speed zombie chase between the stalagmites and stalactites, sliding down the slippery cave walls and finding buried treasure!

 We went to the beach and the walk down the white winding paths to the bright blue water reminded me of Greece a little… After swimming we ate the most divine lunch- Caprese salad with tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and basil and a savory crepe with cheese, hard-boiled eggs and spinach and homemade gelato for dessert! 

I can't wait to go back to this wonderful little retreat from the busier cities of Spain!

Happy Backpackers

I had an absolutely amazing time on my WSA trip to Krakow, Poland. I felt like a got a lot out of my money and it was so nice not to have to worry about anything because WSA takes care of it all. Our guide was absolutely fantastic and was there with us for everything we needed-it was great to have someone around with you who knew the city so well. This is definitely a trip I will never forget. I already want to start planning my next WSA trip. What amazing destination to pick next is the hard part!
