A visit to Spain

Helen was doing a workout in Southern Spain and had ten days in between the two sessions. She emailed me and asked what I was doing in November?
I had promised a good friend of mine there that I would visit sometime and this seemed to be the perfect opportunity. I booked my flight, again using air miles so a bit of a round trip, still I got there safely. I flew in to Malaga and got a coach to Marbella where Helen collected me and we drove to Ronda a lovely town with beautiful countryside all round it. We stayed in an apartment house which she had found and were very comfortable well placed in the town for sightseeing.
One night there and we were off to Cadiz. While there we visited the Travia Tower and I managed to climb the 173 steps to the top!
From Cadiz to Jerez, where Helen went and got two umbrellas for the price of one, as w had some heavy rain. It was the only rain we had the entire visit.
From Jerez we went to Seville, on to Cordoba and on to the Granada Province where we stayed with my old friend for the next few days. While there we visited the Alhambra and the white villages inn the Sierras and a couple of the s=coastal towns and included the Nerja Caves as well.
It was a fantastic visit and now I am off to the Isle of Wight for Christmas shortly.
