Weekend getaway in Andalusia: Cordoba

By | 2019-04-13T18:21:26+00:00 April 13th, 2019|

We anticipated that parking situation in Cordoba will be as tense as in Malaga or Granade, therefore we googled the free parking before we drove to this city. We found free parking in the area of Torre De Calahorra. You have to be aware of the self-proclaimed “valets”, who wave you in the free slot and “help” you to [...]

…or STHLM, you will see this abbreviation frequently on the advertisement posters in the metro or buses. We were lucky to visit Stockholm in golden autumn.
