Looking for 20 reasons to come to Spain? Look no further

The Huffington Post's run-through of Spanish attractions is a great read

It’s a rare day indeed that I willingly point you in the direction of another piece of writing about Spain. But sometimes others hit upon such a simple idea that there’s little I can do but sit back and applaud (well, in between a feverish bout of mental note-taking).

Liberal blog-cum-newspaper The Huffington Post this week piqued my interest with a devastatingly brilliant article on the wonders of Spain titled “20 Reasons to Drop Everything and Go to Spain”.

Jorge's images: Let there be light... It's Christmas in Málaga!

Málaga Christmas lights 2013
As if Málaga didn’t shine brightly enough the rest of the year, on Friday 29 November 2013 the city found itself once again flooded in its famous Christmas lights. Possibly the best year yet, check out the unmissable festive display, courtesy of VIVA’s very own photographer, Jorge Morales as he explored the city on the Paseo del Parque, Alameda Principal and Calle Marqués de Larios. It is well worth seeing these stunning illuminations (on from 6:30pm everyday) to view this gorgeous city in a whole new light (literally)!

Málaga lights up for the festive season

Málaga shines at Christmas

The city of Málaga shines bright for the Christmas season

Mercadona’s shelves are merry with delicious treats, tinsel hangs from every other window and the Chinese shops are awash with amazingly tacky, sparkly garnish.

Yep, it may have crept up on us, but it’s that ‘most wonderful time of the yearagain!

In my mind, tomorrow (Friday 29 November) marks the beginning of the countdown to Christmas in Spain with the turning on of the Christmas lights in MálagaContinue Reading
