Destinations, Europe, Croatia, Split

Menton, France

Destinations, Europe, Spain, Malaga

Malaga, Andalusia, Spain

Malaga was our second city to visit in Spain. At first glance, it seemed like a much larger and newer, more modern city compared to Cádiz. Maybe it’s due to it’s seemingly more desirable location on the Mediterranean, in the Andalusia region of southern Spain.  Our ships path to Malaga […]
