We’ve planned a trip to Spain for the holidays, so I figured it’s time to post photos from the week we spent on Marbella seaside this August. Those little sun-filled towns along the shore always exude happiness and serenity, don’t they? By the way, I’d appreciate any suggestions for Tenerife or La Palma! Or Barcelona, even though I’ve been a thousand times and also posted this Barca food guide.
If you scroll down through my Instagram feed, you can find the blue theme I had during our Marbella trip. So of course, I had to visit the blue village!
Juzcar used to be one of the traditional white towns in the hills of Malaga until Sony Pictures decided to film the Smurf movie there. The houses were painted blue, and the initial deal was to colour them white again after the production had ended. But the place started getting so many tourists admiring the new look, they decided to keep the colour.
We went early in the morning while the sun was still gentle and the streets were empty. And while none of us had seen even one smurf movie/episode, walking through the blue streets felt magical and surreal.
Well, I didn’t take a dip in the sea once, but I did shoot outfits by the seaside, which is arguably better.
But hey, I did get into the pool, like, twice. Not a water person, I guess.
Another cool place not far from Marbella is the crocodile park. Aren’t they majestic creatures? It seems you can reach a sort of understanding with a cat or an elephant, but not these ancient dragons. They are like the force of nature, not separate beings.
We enjoyed the vast green landscape once more on the way to Sevilla, the capital of Andalusia. There’s a lot to see, so give yourself a full day for exploring the city if you’re visiting.
