So we left windy Tarifa after an early morning along the beach and a tasty brunch and drove to our first stop-over of the day: The dunes of Punta Paloma.

Now that you are acclimatized to the burning heat of southern Spain and had your first tapas and drinks in Malaga, it is time to start the road trip and to travel to the south.

I finally got to travel back to my beloved Andalucía, although just for 8 nights- which is way too short. No matter how well you plan ahead and how many hours you will spend on the autovias del sur, there are just too many amazing things to discover. Heavy-heartedly we had to cross off our list cities like Granada (this was the toughest), Córdoba, Nerja, Jerez de la Frontera and so on; but it is midsummer and we wanted to spend some time at the beach after a disappointing “monsoon season” back home.

If you are one of the less fortunate people who has to work during summer in an overheated and sticky office, then a little break from your daily routine may just work wonders for you.

Let’s assume you read part 1 of my guide and you are landing on a Saturday afternoon in Cape Town to start your journey. Here’s your daily schedule:

If one night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble, two weeks in Cape Town will make a weary man happier than Leo at this year’s Oscars.

What happens when you decide to try your luck on a Saturday night and pop into a trendy restaurant without reservations? Correct, most probably you will you end up walking the streets after 10pm and eating some nasty trash food next to some drunk teenagers and a guy begging for your change. But on rare occasions while aimlessly wandering the streets you land a lucky punch and find a hidden gem.
