Where? Los Vélez?
Los Vélez Travel Blog› entry 2 of 3 › view all entries
After having lived here now for almost 2 years I find it totaly remarkable that hardly anybody knows about this part of Spain. It is truly a hidden pearl. And now I am torn between spreading the word or keeping it quiet....... Maybe at first I will slowly drip some pictures and do a little writing now and then on this very beautifull part of the world.......
When I was younger without children I traveled as much as I could. In my twenties I used to work for a couple of months and then buy an "open" ticket and fly away - where ever....... Later when I had a career going, I spend a lot of time traveling for my work, Europe, US, Asia. It was great. Allthough I don't do a lot of exotic - overseas - traveling these days anymore, I do go on short trips here in and around Los Vélez or further afield towards the coast of Cabo the Gata or further inland towards Granada.
I live in the middle of nowhere - out in the country side in the area that is known as Los Vélez. Roughly it is located in the middle between Alicante (1 hour and 45 min.) and Granada (1,5 hour), the most northern tip of the province of Almería - on the border with the Granada (province) en Murcia. Very traditional and at the same time very modern, not only measured by all the gadgets available, and types of cars driving around but also by values and interests. They know what is going on in the world.
