Continuing my challenge set by the lovely Gypsy Woman, my second go comes from my favourite European travel country, namely Spain.

In 2011 Mrs Wilbur & I did a tour, flying into the fabulous Santiago de Compostela, before taking the overnight train to Madrid from where it was high speed AVE trains all the way to take us to charming Cordoba, earthy Cadiz and frenetic Seville.

This before & after picture comes from the Moorish city of Cordoba and features the The Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos (Spanish for “Alcázar of the Christian Monarchs”).

Inside the walls of the Alcázar is situated an exquisite garden, but this picture was taken outside. I love the feeling of reaching for the sky and the notion that you cannot possibly be in Europe.

See what you think, colour or black & white is best?



You can read some more about a couple more of my favourite Spanish cities and others besides in my previous blog showcasing underrated cities of Europe.

There are only two rules for this challenge:

1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W.
2. Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun.

Today I would like to nominate Indah Susanti of  indahs travel blog to join in. Of course this is only if you have the time and want to.

Indah is from Indonesia but now resides in The Netherlands and has a beautiful travel blog, which I am sure you will all love.




  1. […] two challenges to post five photos for five consecutive days this week. The first challenge on Black and White 5 Day Challenge was invited by Wilbur’s Travel, meanwhile the second challenge on Five photos – Five […]


  2. They are both stunning overview of this city, but in this case I think I like the colour one is my favourite, in the b&w the palms look a bit too dominant
