Spain with the Ford Ranger

Mar, 16 || No Comments |

A road trip in Spain might be the stuff dreams are made of but this summer we decided to make that dream a reality. We decided we wanted to explore more than just the beaches and coastline that Spain is famous for, so we started to narrow down an itinerary based on offbeat villages, famous tapas bars, and UNESCO Heritage sites

We rented the ford automotive 2015 ranger and off we went to explore this stunning country on our own. First up- white villages dotting Andalucia. Andalucia is an autonomous community located in the southern part of Spain. It is one of the most populated areas of Spain but definitely one of the prettiest. There are countless villages with white washed houses that look like real-life picture postcards. The stark blue of the water provides the perfect contrast to the white colour of the houses.

Seville, the capital of Andalucia, was the highlight of our trip to this side of the country. There are monuments and historical buildings at every corner, but we loved its orange-tree laden streets the most. There is a distinctive citrus fragrance in the air at all times in Seville and that makes this city very special indeed. Of course, for lazy days, the coastline is never too far. It provides easy access to a world of water sports and beach bumming opportunities.

However if you like exploring, head west to the rural hinterland of Andalucia. Spend time exploring the cobble-stoned alleys of the tiny villages that make Andalucia. Make sure you sample the local cuisine at tiny tapas bars in the villages. It definitely helps to know even the slightest smattering of Spanish. Andalucian locals love tourists who are willing to embrace their culture.

When we were done with the Southern part of the country, we headed north to Barcelona. Now a lot has been said about Barcelona. There is hundreds of things to do in Barcelona – tourists love to spend hours exploring Gaudi’s architectural marvels, absorbing the atmosphere at Las Ramblas, and acquainting themselves with the Gothic Quarter. But do you know what we loved the most?

We loved escaping the humdrum of the city for the quieter environs of the countryside around Barcelona. The beaches of Costa Brava might be as busy as the city of Barcelona but you can always look for secluded ‘secret’ beaches if you have a car. Don’t forget to keep a lookout for endless sunflower fields on your drives from the city of Barcelona to the beaches of Costa Brava. These sunflower fields have provided a stunning backdrop in countless films and TV series and there’s no stopping you from frolicking in them to your heart’s content.

If you’re a gourmand, make sure you explore Costa Brava’s amazing fine dining scene. The landscape is peppered with dynamic Michelin star eateries – there’s something whether you’re celebrating a special occasion, treating your spouse, or just dining by yourself.

Spain delighted all our senses and left us wanting more. We’ll definitely be back next year for a long road trip – there’s no harm dreaming is there? 🙂
