spain: cádiz

cádiz was one of the next stops on our journey. it’s a very lovely city located directly at the sea. we spent just one day there because we couldn’t find a cheap place to stay. there are only a few hostels (i think just 2 or 3) and the lady at the tourist information told us: “it’s high season, you know?”. fortunately we had this kind of problem just in cádiz, even in ronda we found a very nice hostel in the middle of the city.
but we found a great solution, we spent the night in our car at the beach and enjoyed the most amazing sunrise the morning after :)

next morning’s sunrise:

spain: sunrise and on the road

our second stop was almeria, which is located around 430 km south of valencia. at first we wanted to stop in alicante as well but in the end we didn’t, because we wanted to get to andalusia as soon as pssible (we spent one night in alicante on our way back to valencia, yet we didn’t see much of the city but an awesome tapas bar).
so we left valencia on the second day in the evening and became real adventure girls because we spent one night in the car. we felt kind of scary because we didn’t  know if it is allowed to sleep in a car in spain (a few days later a friend told us that it’s no problem if you aren’t camping), and so we woke up at every little noise we heard and thought it’s the police who wants to arrest us :D
buuuut it was worth the fear, we saw a wonderful sunrise the next morning :)

after a little breakfast at the harbor (i cannot remeber the name of the city, must have been somewhere north of almeria), we continued our journey and stopped at a beach nearby for some sunbathing. we arrived in almeria in the late afternoon, i will show you some photos of the city in my next post.
here are some of the photos i took during our way to almeria, i was amazed by this landscape, it looked like a mix between desert and mountains and sometimes it reminded me a little bit of ‘breaking bad’ :)
