With two history and facts heavy posts, I felt I should tone down my next post a bit. So here is a photo heavy one on our road trip to Cadiz. The reason why we took a road-trip to Cadiz was mainly because I wanted a road trip. Yes!
While in Barcelona, we planned to drive down to Cadaquez, Figueres and Girona. We then changed our minds and decided to drive to Valencia to meet someone really important. We had packed everything and were ready for the long drive ahead. But the rental company had different plans for us. They wouldn’t give us a car without our UAE driver’s license. We had the International Driver’s License with us. That wasn’t enough. Our hearts were broken, mine in particular.
Fast forward, couple of days after we reached Seville, my UAE driver’s license arrived via courier. Thanks to my Mom! Valencia was six hours’ drive from Seville. We couldn't bring ourselves to drive that long. So we picked another city from my list – Cadiz.
We arrived in Cadiz by noon and had lunch from a restaurant near the plaza. Their tapas are more like full dishes than ‘appetizers’. And one better than the other. We particularly loved the Potato Salmon salad and Tomato Mint Soup.
Pardon the poor quality food photos. They were taken in a hurry with my phone.

We crossed through a park.

More from our trip to Spain soon.
Drive from Seville to Cadiz was simple and straightforward. There were plenty of signs and it was much like driving from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. It took us less than 1.5 hours each way.
There is a toll gate that charges 7.5 euros each way.
