If you've been to Northern Europe (and I will include here Belgium and the North of France) you will know that December is not a pretty month in terms of weather...it's literally crap. Over several years, we had some Decembers with a total of 8h of sunshine, not even to mention that sunrise is around 8:30 and sunset is at 15:30 or so I looked for a workaround.
We all know that when it comes to sites, museums, art and food Barcelona is a dream come true for any tourist and I guess there is never enough time to actually see it all, but if you want to change a bit the landscape, Girona is a great alternative for a day trip.

Staying in Malaga gives you the option to do several day trips depending on how much time you have. The ideal scenario is for your you to rent a car for maximum flexibility, but if you don't want to or do not have a driving licence, do not worry, ALSA has you covered.
My first view of Andalusia comes with my visit to Malaga. As for some other trips I have done, this comes in the category of a weekend away with my family. Every year my mom chooses a destination and we all meet there (this is including my sister). Check out how this went:
I'll admit it, November, is not the best month out there, but it's my b-day and so I decided to always make the best out of it. On top of this, In Belgium my b-day falls on a bank holiday....sooooo it's a day off for a lot of my friends. When thinking where to go next, I thought about the grey Belgian sky in November and ... any place out there rather easy to reach which has chances of some sunlight ... and TADA...Tenerife it was :)
With its 3,718-meters, the volcano is the highest point of Spain (including mainland) but for me this is not the most impressive part of the volcano, but the fact that it is the best spot for stargazing in Europe.
With winding roads and the ocean on your right, this is one dreamy roadtrip!
Very possible I did not get to the right places, but I must say that I was not impressed by the beach offer of Tenerife (please don't shoot me).
We had to stop in Santa Cruz de Tenerife to have a look at the auditorium which was designed by the same architect as the train station in Liege, Belgium.
