With Spain so close its a pity not to do a bit of exploring whilst enjoying the sun. This is Spain like the tourists on the costa de Sol have never seen.

Across the border and you enter an orchard that stretches for miles and miles. The Spanish have not been slow to invest in modern farming. Lepe is a small town on the road to Huelva. Its also Europes largest strawberry field. As far as the eye can see.

Sevilha is the destination that most visitors aim for, and rightly so. Its a fascinating city packed with eye catching buildings from the empires of both the Arabs and the Spanish kings from Castille. A day is just not enough to see it all. Sevilha is also the car theft capital of Europe so if you have to drive leave nothing in the car.

Some car hire companies will let you take the car to Spain. There will normally be a charge for the insurance company to issue the green card, but its well worth it to explore the unspoilt side of Spain.
