Traveling has changed so much in the age of smart phones and internet! In the past we would drive and then find an accommodation or place to eat purely by chance, luck, economy or availability! Now, we can research the best options, book in advance and locate via gps!
Before we get on the road – a few more pics from Sevilla.
We wanted to make a stop for a nice Sunday lunch on our way to Marbella – Spanish style! I found Bodega la Mazaroca on TripAdvisor in a small town – Arahel- about 45 minutes out of Sevilla. A little whitewashed town with narrow streets lined with row houses. We tracked down la Mazaroca, but so did everyone else in the area (Spaniards, not gringos!)!!! We secured two standing places at the bar and proceeded to take a guess at what we were ordering. Everything being produced and delivered looked incredible!
This was one of our orders – translation afterwards = hake. It was wonderful.
Oh! Spanish olives that we buy so cheaply? And all the olive oil we consume? Yeah! As far as the eye can see here in this part of Andalusia- olive groves.
Happy to be settled for a week at Marriott Beach Resort, Marbella where we can explore some of the lovely white hill towns that we love!
