Travelling through southern Spain provides a travel experience that is sure to delight but travelling in the luxurious surroundings of the Al-Andalus creates the opportunity for you to slow down on your adventure. We all too often live daily life at a fast and busy pace, we forget to stop and observe our surroundings. We are all too often consumed by digital devices and the world of technology that we miss the finer details in life and so spend some time talking to one another while not simultaneously doing other things. This adventure not only allows for new discoveries it provides the chance for you to slow down and absorb the experience, fully creating lasting memories that go far beyond a photograph quickly captured.
