My one week road trip itinerary for Andalusia

My one week road trip itinerary for Andalusia

I don’t think I have ever received as many questions about any of my itineraries, as I did when I traveled Andalusia! Which is not so strange of course: Andalusia is a pretty magical place! The dry terracotta-colored landscapes with striking white villages feel like a different universe. And when I wandered around the palaces with Moorish architecture, I had to pinch myself to double check I wasn’t dreaming.

Surprisingly there are quite a lot of things to do in Andalusia and a week is actually a bit too short. A week and a half would have been perfect, and if you also want to relax for a few days I would even stretch it to two weeks. Because part of my trip was arranged for me, I wasn’t able to plan everything myself. After I got my psycho control issues out of the way, it was actually pretty fun, since we went to places that I otherwise wouldn’t have gone to. Sadly we didn’t visit Granada: the Alhambra was already sold out for the dates that we were in town, and I would rather come back a second time to really explore the city. 

So instead we spent five days travelling and two days relaxing at the pool. Exactly what I needed after five days of sightseeing! This was my itinerary for seven days in Andalusia!

If you ever want to plan an epic road trip: the US is your probably  your best choice! It’s clear that it offers much more than just an interesting food culture: within a few hours you’ll travel from snowy mountain tops to the middle of the desert, and after the cosmopolitan city experiences you can get to the beach in no time to relax for a day. Not to mention the feeling of freedom a road trip gives you! To help you plan a road trip I’ll be sharing our one month itinerary along the west coast of the US!

Budget: how much does a 1-month USA road trip cost?

Budget: how much does a 1-month USA road trip cost?

My one-month road trip along the west coast of the United States was one of the most beautiful, fun and memorable things I’ve ever done. But yikes – also one of the most expensive ones. The USA is amongst the most expensive countries in the world to travel through, but that shouldn’t stop you from doing it… as it is positively gorgeous.

I had been looking forward to this road trip I’d be taking together with Mr. for a long time. After lots of planning we decided we needed about a month to see everything we wanted to see, plus another week to spend with family in Southern California. And then we started calculating. I’ll save you the time and effort: below I’ll share with you what the exact costs are for a road trip in the US. If you are curious about our road trip adventures along the West Coast, you can check out my other article here!

The USA is probably my favourite road trip destination… not because of its complete lack of a functioning public transport system but because the country is so diverse. It’s addicting, and so I keep returning. From the historical east coast to the chilled and sunny west coast, and from the quiet midwest to bustlin’ Florida. And don’t even get me started on the Natural Parks… they are INSANE. You can go from desert to snowy mountain peaks in a matter of hours. But if you’re planning a road trip in the country of endless highways, there’s 7 things you should know about driving in the US, my boss babe.
