Dear Globetrotters,
I want to offer you a different view of Andalusia than what one is used to in travel brochures, in order to plan your journey in a better way. Concentrated on the Province of Málaga (Costa del Sol and rural backland) and the Province of Granada (Sierra Nevada – skiing region, Axarquía). My collection grows every week, so please have a look from time to time. You can find the collection by Google search:
