I spent 10 days self-driving around Andalusia by car, from Malaga, Sevilla, Cordoba, and Granada, with stops in Antequerra, Rhona, and the Costa del Sol along the way. I've written up our itinerary and all recommended places and would be happy to share with fellow travelers. This was one of the best trips I took while living in Paris, and have recommended it to many people.

Ask cvanwinkle23 a question about Andalusia.


I recently returned from Rwanda after spending 1.5 years living in Kigali. My husband and I traveled around the country, and the region, every chance we got. Rwanda has 3 national parks that are equally spectacular to visit (1 new national park was gazetted last year but no tourism infrastructure just yet). We also visited neighboring DRC to visit Virguna National Park, home to the Nyirangongo Crater and the last remaining mountain gorillas (in addition to Uganda, and Rwanda, but far cheaper to trek here). We loved being in this region and would be happy to help the travel community arrange a visit to this very special little country. Thanks!
