Hello!!! Lovers of the Earth and Nature! I study Medicine (4th year!), so when I have some free time, there's only one word in my mind: TRAVEL, TRAVEL!!! :DDD
BE CAREFUL WITH THE CLIMATE CHANGUE
--->EUROPE'S FIRST HURRICANE-HURRICANE VINCE- LANDED ON THE SOUTH WESTERN COAST OF SPAIN IN OCTOBER. It was the farthest northeast a tropical storm had ever developed in the Atlantic and it developed over water that was thought to be too cold to be able to support a tropical storm. Following Hurricane Vince, the tropical storm Delta hit the Canary and Madeira Islands in November 2005, leaving behind severe damage, power outages and fatalities.
FOR THE LOVE THAT WE HAVE TO OUR WORLD, WE MUST DO SOMETHING SO FUTURE GENERATIONS CAN WRITE ABOUT SO WONDERFUL
PLACES AS WE HAVE DONE AND STILL DO.

Although all the province of Jaen is pretty :P I show one of the most visited cities, Cazorla, where the second river of Spain has its origin. For such a small town there are a surprising number of three and four star hotels and countless rural guest houses Cazorla is the entry point and base for visits to the Natural Park of Sierras de Cazorla Segura y las Villas, a vast protected area of magnificent river gorges and forests. Spain's second longest river, the Guadalquivir has its source in the mountains to the south of the settlement. The town is constructed around three main squares, the Plaza de la Constitución, the Plaza de la Corredera (or de Huevo, "of the Egg", because of its shape), and the Plaza Santa Maria. This last square is the oldest ... read more

OOOhhh, and I present my second home...Where I'm studying Medicine, where it's too hot :D Today a moderately-sized modern city, the old town contains many impressive architectural reminders of when Cordoba was the thriving capital of the Caliphate of Cordoba that governed almost all of the Iberian peninsula. The city is located in a depression of the valley of the Guadalquivir. In the north is the Sierra Morena, which defines the borders of the municipal area. About the architecture, we can found the Great Mosque of Cordoba which contains columns that date back to the Roman and Visigothic periods, was primarily constructed during the Umayyad period (its construction started in 784), and was converted to a Cathedral after the Reconquista. Tourism is especially intense in Cordoba during May because of the weather and as this month ... read more

Some photos of my travel in Madrid. the capital of Spain... In general, Spaniards eat lunch anywhere from 1:30 to 3:30, and dinner is frequently at 10:00 at night. Some advice is to eat out at lunchtime rather than in the evening if you want a good menu at a cheap price. Sitting and waiting should be observed as a comfort time to enjoy your company. Waiters will never ask you to leave. People go out to have a good time, so the noise level is high. Asking to take your left over food home with you (i.e. doggie bag) is virtually unheard of and often considered cheap. Tip by simply leaving your change or a few coins. Spaniards are big on greetings and farewells. They place a lot of emphasis on physical contact. When men ... read more

Un viajecito a Granada, última tierra en ser reconquistada en 1492 por los Reyes Católicos. Gente estupenda, buen clima, tierra, una candidata a maravilla del mundo..Se puede pedir más? A little of history.... ABOUT CATHOLIC MONARCHS Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella I of Castile, whose marriage (1469) led to the unification of Spain, of which they were the first monarchs. Although employed earlier, the appellation Católicos was formally conferred on them in a bull published by Pope Alexander VI in 1494, in recognition of their reconquest of Granada from the Moors (1481-92), their New World discoveries (1492), and their strengthening of the church by such agencies as the Spanish Inquisition and such measures as compelling Jews to convert to Christianity or face exile (1492). The title of Católicos was afterward transmitted to the successors of ... read more

Hello Everyone. Empiezo mi primer viaje mundano en propias tierras españolas, concretamente en Murcia, la tierra del mar cristalino y los castillos flotantes, como a mi me gusta llamarla.

Después nos dirigimos a Cartagena y La Manga del Menor, y contemplen ustedes mismos..simplemente wonderful... Como ahora soy NEW en esto, quiza es un poco chapuza, pero bueno, ya le ire cogiendo el truquito.. Hasta luego muchachos!!... read more
