Flyday Fridays: Cádiz

Hi, luvlies!

As promised, here´s part 1 of my recently concluded Andalusian trip. I´m sharing with you just a small part of Cádiz, the capital city of Cádiz in Spain. It´s one of the oldest cities in southwestern Europe. The first thing that caught my eye when I stepped down from the train were the palm trees. This type of  tree is a rarity in the northern part of Spain where I live, hahaha!

The main quarters have neatly lined streets and the apartments (piso in Spanish) buildings have small balconies jutting out which remind me of Valencia and in some parts of La Coruña and Vigo in the Galician region.


The Cathedral of Cádiz originally built in baroque style but finished in the neoclassical stylen is one of the city´s  famous landmarks.


We climbed up one of the towers and here´s what welcomed us at the top, the bells:


and the Cathedral´s cupola:


And the photo sessions began. It was quite windy up there and when the hubz was trying to take photos through my phone ( my phone takes better and vivid photos than my camera, I swear!), a strong gust of wind   tilted the phone and this is the result, his and her´s footwear:


Luckily, we´re able to have a decent head shot while I was trying to hold  my hair to keep it from flying all over my face. ;)


The city´s skyline:


and the city´s shoreline still from the top of the tower:


Finally, here´s a candid shot of my what I was wearing that day:


It was matchy-matchy, hehe and I wore sneakers for the rain and walking. I wore mostly chambray tops during my trip( this time in a darker shade from the sales again) and a short tweed-looking knitted cardigan. The floral silver ring was my only accesory for spring. ;)

More travel photos in the next Friday travel posts. I´ve got a lot to share with you not only from the Spanish south but from my place too. Thanks for reading and see you soon!
