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

The trip I took with WSA was amazing. We had an incredible tour guide and we got to see the most important attractions Krakow has to offer. We did vodka tasting, a golf cart ride through the jewish quarter, schindlers museum, Auscwhitz and Birkenau, and a tour of the whole city. We packed everything in in two days. I highly recommend this to people who are backpacking or studying abroad throughout europe. This is definetly targeted to a younger crowd, but was absolutely worth the money.
