¡Buenos dias amigos queridos! Que tal? Bien? ¡Vale! Are you digging my Spanish? Sexy right? I’m just kidding…I’m really not though. Ha. Moving on, I tend to frequent Spain often. Living in Paris, I can visit surrounding countries pretty easily. It’s one of the many perks to living abroad. I also visit Spain a lot because one of my best friends from childhood lives there, extra bonus.
My bestie lives in Sevilla, Spain and if you’re not familiar with the city, it gets very hot there and with no beach I’m like a fish out of water. I love the city, but I can’t stand the heat. So, we made a trip further south to Cadiz. Known for it’s beautiful beach town landscape and energy, it’s history runs deep. The ports in Cadiz were used to go and explore, conquer and decimate the Americas…how lovely! With the conquistadors long gone, the city has since become a location revered for it’s openness, and residents proud of their reputation for having a love of life.
Often referred to as “Little Havana“, I quickly understood why. Although I have not yet had a chance to visit Cuba. I have seen tons of photos from there. One thing that stands out is the bright city buildings and vibrance of the people. Cadiz has both. We headed over for some impromptu photos in the old city (seen above and below). I had every intention of telling people I had actually gone to Cuba, but why lie? Either way, the area was really cute and I loved the colorful buildings, all intertwined and resting atop narrow roads.
I truly enjoyed Cadiz and have every intention to return. You can see more of my photos from this beautiful city in Her Travels.
