About Us | Contact

A journey, after all, neither begins in the instant we set out nor ends when we have reached our doorstep once again. It starts much earlier and is really never over because the film of memory continues running on inside of us long after we have come to a physical standstill. Indeed, there exists something like a contagion of travel, and the disease is essentially incurable.

Witaj! Dorota mi na imię. Jeśli to czytasz to miło mi, że wpadłaś/eś na mój blog poświęcony podróżom i zwiedzaniu Półwyspu Iberyjskiego… i nie tylko ;)!

Przez lata mieszkaliśmy w różnych miastach i częściach Andaluzji, m.in. w Almerii/Almerimarze, Maladze, oraz Benalmadenie. Po 10 latach przeprowadziliśmy się do portugalskiego Algarve, skąd bardzo często podróżujemy do domu – Andaluzji i innych części Półwyspu.

The blog was created almost 10 years ago as humble notes hastily written about what's worth seeing and paying attention to during our journeys through southern Spain. Over time, I decided to transform those notes into an online blog, giving birth to the first version of the website, which you can visit at www.southernspain.net. At some point, the domain name no longer suited the content because we started traveling extensively by camper throughout the Peninsula, especially in Portugal and the northern regions of Iberia. And so, this new website came into existence - the one you are browsing now - which serves as a record of our travels. www.southernspain.net. W pewnym momencie nazwa domeny przestała nadąrzać za nami :), bo sporo podróżujemy kamperem po Półwyspie, zwłaszcza po Portugalii, czy północy Iberii. I tak powstała nowa – właśnie ta, którą przeglądasz, i która jest zapisem naszych podróży.

I share with you here guides, descriptions of places, and stories of monuments. I include maps of attractions, recommendations for restaurants, campsites...


Countries where we have lived so far:

  • Poland - 30 years, with breaks...
  • Spain - over 10 years, with breaks...
  • South Africa - in total, a year, in Port Elizabeth, Cape Town, and surrounding areas.
