Unfortunately, there’s not a lot I can say about Valencia. Not because I didn’t like it, but because we arrived very late and after those past intensive days we were just too #tired to walk around. I’m gonna use this as an excuse to come back to this #wonderful city one day 😊  Anyway, thank you all to be already 3000 followers, I really appreciate that you guys are reading my #adventures
On the road. The key word of our way of travelling was “#cheap”. That’s why sometimes we just stopped in nice spots and cooked something with the #portable #grill. It wasn’t easy, we used the #umbrella to protect us from the #burning #sun and at the same time to protect the #fire from the #wind. A lot of #effort, but at the end we were completely #satisfied with the result.  #rikytravels #25daystravel #roadtrip #ontheroad #landscape #travel #traveling #instatravel #break #lunch #chef #me #heat #roadlife #hamburger #cook #food #valenciana #spain #españa
After an amazing #paella, the Spanish rice dish with fresh fish and meat born in Valencia, we are in fact ready to move towards Valencian Country. Our first stop will precisely be the #island of Tabarca, in Alicante province. Here the #crystal water and the perfect weather gifted us some #amazing chilling hours. Interesting also the #fisherman village in the city, tiny and cute, but also #characteristic.  #rikytravels #25daystravel #roadtrip #water #seashore #beach #ocean #travel #traveling #instatravel #instago #landscape #nature #summer #seascape #vacation #leisure #boat #ship #valenciana #alicante #tabarca #spain #españa
Portman beach, in the heart of the now #abandoned #mining area. The main #beach #restoration is in progress, but the #black #magnetic #sand makes it #unique. We snorkeled around and the #fauna was #impressive, different #colored #fish and #corals and #anemones of any form. In a #secret area there’s a #cliff to #jump in the #sea from a considerable height. @rxffaell97 was too scared to jump. 😅 But after I did it, I felt the sound of the air becoming a rustle and covering all my face, making me realize how tall and scary was.  #rikytravels #25daystravel #roundtrip #snorkeling #murcia #travel #traveling #instatravel #friends #heat #chill #magic
Taking a walk along the #port of the city in which was created the first torpedo #submarine of history, we chilled and took some pictures to other pieces of Cartagena. The weather got hot: time to go to an #interesting #beach not far from the city. Let’s see in the next post.  #rikytravels #25daystravel #roadtrip #head #me #sculpture #statue #whale #sea #chill #summer #outdoors #grass #leisure #park #travel #traveling #visiting #instatravel #instago #relaxation #man #murcia #cartagena #spain #españa
We didn’t expect to find such a sweet and generous #hospitality in Cartagena, the city from which Hannibal took off to begin the Second Punic War. We decided to stay there a couple of days because it's the home town of my friend @moiso.p, and we were gently hosted by his family, with a service fit of a prince. Our new guide @jepepe17 took us around the city center, and the thing that impressed us more was the Roman Theatre and its #stage, as you can see in the picture.  #rikytravels #25daystravel #roadtrip #architecture #ancient #travel #traveling #visiting #instatravel #instago #archaeology #theatre #roman #statue #oldtown #building #stone #tourism #column #tower #culture #wall #ruin #murcia #cartagena #cartagho #spain #españa
After Sevilla, Cadiz, Ronda, Granada, Malaga and all the intermediate stops, it’s time to say #goodbye to Andalucía. Before crossing Murcia region border, we decided to say goodbye to the #desert. So, we went in the middle of nowhere, but when we opened the #car door to do some pictures, a swarm of #flies #assaulted us completely. Sweaty and surrounded by #insects, @rxffaell97 took this two pictures that represent the moment.  #rikytravels #25daystravel #roadtrip #nature #landscape #travel #traveling #instatravel #instago #summer #field #dry #sand #adventure #freedom #sweaty #me #tanned #heat #daylight #sunny #andalucia #spain #españa
When you have only two days to visit a big city like Malaga, and someone broke your car’s window to steal your bags the night before, it’s really not easy to visit all the things that deserve to be seen. But if you have a #guide like @jotabe.3, everything is possible. As a guy born and raised in the city, he was able to show us everything in no time, from the most touristic attractions (like the Cathedral, the Alcazaba and Gibralfaro’s castle), to other uncommon sites like the #suburbs and its incredible graffiti. I #love this picture that represents our #friendship, because you can really see how we are both holding the laugh. It’s not something easy to do when you are with such a #cheerful person like Jesus. In the background the famous grilled #sardines of Malaga: #espetos de sardinas.  #rikytravels #25daystravel #people #portrait #travel #traveling #visiting #instatravel #instago #enjoy #lifestyle #summer #friends #vacation #outdoors #leisure #wear #fun #young #andalucia #malaga #españa #spain
I love Malaga, and how it treats his tourists. I spent less than one euro to get inside this amazing palace, and I can assure you that a lot more would have been worth anyway. The Arabic #palace is not fully restored yet, and some parts are not accessible. But the view from the tallest point was just unrivalled and the Arabic #decorations precious.  #rikytravels #25daystravel #me #architecture #building #travel #traveling #visiting #instatravel #instago #arabic #portrait #wear #sculpture #light #door #window #castle #art #city #lookaway #composition #daylight #ancient #andalucia #malaga #spain #españa
I know that this picture of Malaga is a quite common one, but I choose it on purpose: I wanted to create a contrast with a city that is not common at all. Chaos, parties, joyous people, pranksters, but also crooks and thieves. It’s one of the most #colourful cities of Spain, with its pros and its cons. I’ll remember forever that night: with our guide @super_daario we went to some clubs to enjoy the nightlife the city could offer us, and #cheerful we were coming back to the car, parked before in a central and apparently safe area. But our surprise was a broken window, and our bags were gone. So, I called the police, but the answer was something like “Your car has a foreign number plate? Ah, well. It’s normal though”. #rikytravels #25daystravel #architecture #cityscape #travel #traveling #instatravel #instago #city #panoramic #skyline #sight #panorama #urban #tourism #joyful #outdoors #aerial #hill #church #roof #sea #port #bullring #andalucia #malaga #spain #españa
It’s just unbelievable how the places which touch you more, are the one you didn’t mark on the map. I was looking the #horizon during this little #stop towards Malaga, and at some point, something appeared just out of the corner of my eye. There were two #deer, mom and son, going to drink from the #reservoir. What a #cute #surprise! 😍 Moreover, that terribly hot weather made them thirsty as well.  #rikytravels #25daystravel #water #travel #traveling #break #instatravel #instago #mountain #seashore #lake #river #dig #landscape #sky #panoramic #nature #island #hill #rock #bay #andalucia #spain #españa
“Let’s go to the mountains, maybe it’s going to be cooler”. Nothing more wrong, it was that hot that we couldn’t stay long under the sun. I was that thirsty that I literally try to drink our guide Alejandro 😂. He told us that in winter is so much better, when the snow covers the summits. Our consolation prize was the unexpected stop in a chill out place I was impressed by, because you could have your drink and between one sip and another one, dive in the swimming pool and freshen up. Spanish people know very well how to chill, indeed they invented “siesta”! 😎  #rikytravels #25daystravel #water #travel #traveling #instatravel #instago #peak #summit #summer #outdoors #fence #leisure #friends #thirsty #vacation #mountain #desert #heat #me #happy #surprise #freedom #nature #fun #outside #andalucia #sierranevada #spain #españa
It’s time to say goodbye to Granada, this amazing city that gave me as heat as good times. I can still feel the heat through this picture, but I’ll also remember the food I ate, the people I met, the buildings I visited. It’s time to go to Malaga, but only after a pit stop in Sierra Nevada.  #rikytravels #25daystravel #architecture #city #town #panoramic #cityscape #travel #traveling #instatravel #instago #house #hill #outdoors #sight #ancient #building #arabic #old #sky #landscape #roofs #sand #desert #heat #summer #andalucia #granada #spain #españa
I’m always amazed at how Portugal and Spain’s suburbs are painted everywhere with creative and colourful graffiti.  #rikytravels #25daystravel #art #outdoors #street #urban #suburbs #graffiti #graffitiart #muralart #murals #travel #traveling #instatravel #instago #wall #tree #face #painting #city #flower #colorful #creative #windows #sign #summer #granada #andalucia #spain #españa
The royal Arabic palace of Alhambra took my breath away. Not only for how majestic it is, but literally because the heat was impossible to bear. At some point my buddy @rxffaell97 was close to leave, because with something like 50°C (122°F) you just can’t stay more under the blazing sun. I insisted he stay, because for the gem of Andalucia it was worth it, even if it would have been more than that. He thanked me at the end, but after an ice-cold beer and some amazing tapas (the Spanish appetizer). #rikytravels #25daystravel #flowers #architecture #castle #travel #traveling #visiting #instatravel #instago #building #outdoors #fortification #city #tower #tourism #tree #arabic #landmark #panoramic #ancient #daylight #heat #summer #me #breath #alhambra #andalucia #spain #españa
After a long break, @rikytravels is finally back on Instagram. To give more life to the pictures, from the next post they will all be accompanied by a short story about the moment it was taken. The journey continues from where we were, Granada and its impressive Alhambra.  #rikytravels #25daystravel #tree #nature #leaf #footpath #flora #landscape #guidance #park #growth #outdoors #season #summer #garden #hedge #environment #flower #trail #tourism #travel #traveling #visiting #instatravel #instago #alhambra #granada #andalucia #spain #españa
