There are some places that you end up rather by accident. For spring break my roommate asked me to join her in the Canary Islands and in Mallorca. I knew very little about either place, but after a trying winter in Madrid, I was eager to spend some time on the beach.
However, as our plans evolved, I began to have second thoughts. While the idea of island hopping was somewhat intriguing, I always like to pretend to be richer than I am, it also seems a bit excessive. I didn't want to spend all this time in Spain without visiting Andalusia.
