Picos de Europa national park is one of Spain’s largest nature reserves situated in the north of the country. English Wikipedia would tell you that Picos de Europa is the literal translation of Peaks of Europe which is true, but a Spaniard would translate “picos” as pecks or little kisses. It’s one of those places that are picture-perfect everywhere you turn

Nerja makes a great day-trip if you’re already in the province of Málaga and/or look for an alternative of Málaga capital. I’m a fan of Málaga and keep coming back here.

For the Feria de Málaga, I decided to go all out with a flamenco dress (traje de gitana / traje de flamenca), which is traditionally worn by women the Andalusia region of Spain during ferias (festivals).
