Travel Inspiration: Ronda, Spain

Am I Dreaming?

Puente Nuevo, Ronda, Spain |
Located in Malaga Province in southern Spain’s Andalucia region, the small town of Ronda makes an enormous impression. It’s one of the region’s famous “white towns,” filled with characteristic whitewashed houses, but Ronda has a more unique claim to fame. Because the town is perched on cliffs above the El Tajo gorge, bridges play an important role. But the New Bridge (Puente Nuevo), which hasn’t been “new” since it was finished in 1793, is much more than a way to get from Point A to Point B. It arcs across a gorge that drops more than 300 feet to the canyon floor below. Adding to the drama of the scene is a waterfall, tucked in just below the footings of the bridge.

Gina’s first solo trip abroad, at age 16, changed her life. Since then, travel has been her passion and it’s her mission to convince others that they really can make travel a part of their lives. These days, she seeks out destinations where she can indulge her taste for adventure and shop for additions to her textile collection. Some of her favorite experiences from recent trips have included eating bun cha in Hanoi and feeding hyenas in Ethiopia.

Gina’s Favorite Travel Tip: When traveling abroad, learn enough of the language to be polite (hello, thank you, goodbye) and to shop and haggle (numbers and colors).
