Andalusia in southern Spain is one of the most popular regions in the country. With its beautiful beaches, Sierra Nevada mountains, endless parties and mix of big cities and small towns, it’s easy to see why so many people go there. One town that is a little more famous than others is Ronda. With its bridge and spectacular gorge, it’s easy to see why Ronda is on so many people’s travel list. Located close to the city of Malaga, there are several ways to visit Ronda. Keep reading for a guide on what to see and how to get there.

When I was travelling through South America, part of my plan included visiting Paraguay. For me it was a no brainer. It was on my route, so why wouldn’t I visit a new country? However, it wasn’t until I arrived that I found out it’s not a popular country among other travellers. Most miss it due to either visa issues or they simply don’t think there’s much to see. Having enjoyed the time I spent in the country, I can tell you this definitely isn’t the case. So, here are five reasons you should visit Paraguay.

A journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step

Many times when I travel my plans change. But this just means I experience something I wasn’t aware of before I arrived. This was the case on my recent trip to Southern Africa. Due to several coincidences I was travelling East from Cape Town instead of my original plan of coming from the opposite direction. However, this meant I was able to learn of a very special place in the Eastern Cape. Panthera Africa.

A couple of years ago I was travelling for three and a half months, taking in Australia, New Zealand and my first real experience of Asia. I left at the end of October and wouldn’t be back until around mid-January. This meant I would be away for Christmas for the first time, which is the time I spend most with my friends and family. To be away from the traditional Christmas experience would be a massive difference. But I figured if I was going to be away from the ‘normal’ Christmas, then I might as well go for as big a change as I could get. It had already been an unfamiliar last couple of months. From the Christmas Parade in New Zealand, the festive singing and dancing show in a Kuala Lumpur shopping mall plus ‘Frosty the Snowman’ and Christmas trees in the 38°C heat of Singapore.

Cordoba is a city I’ve been wanting to see for a long time. I passed through Andalusia on my first visit to Spain but, while I saw the main cities of Malaga, Sevilla and Granada, I never made it to Cordoba. Recently I had an opportunity to rectify this on a return to southern Spain and ensured a visit to the city was a top priority.

One of my favourite places I visited in South America was the small town of El Chaltén. It’s located in the south of Patagonia, close to the Chilean border, in a truly stunning area. Many people visit for hiking and there are some incredible walks to take in. The main highlights are Mount Fitzroy and Laguna de los Tres, one of the best one-day hikes anywhere in the world.

I was looking out of the window on the flight from Alice Springs to Cairns. “It doesn’t look too bad,” I thought. “And this is higher.” Two days later, crammed into a tiny plane with 14 other people, I wasn’t so confident.

I was meeting a friend to travel down the coast of Queensland. He wanted to do a skydive but the others he was travelling with weren’t so keen. He asked if I wanted to join him and for some reason I agreed. I’m not the sort of person who enjoys going to theme parks. The few times I’ve been on a roller coaster I didn’t react well. But apparently jumping out of a plane at 15,000 feet wasn’t as much of a concern.
