Cadiz is a beautiful Spanish town. It’s one of those with small streets lined by tall buildings where you assume that since the road is so narrow it’s only for pedestrians, and then a car comes barreling down, separates the crowd and barely misses your feet. Exciting, huh? Not all the roads are that narrow but many are. You can be walking down one, shoulder to shoulder with hundreds of others, then turn ninety degrees down the next road and there you are, alone amongst cobblestones. It’s almost eerie how quickly you can ditch the crowd.
We aimlessly wandered much longer than our previous visit (in which we spent our while time searching for fake eyelashes), allowing us to actually reach the other side of the peninsula, which showcased amazing views along the coastline. The fresh sea air always seem that much more fresh when the ship is nowhere in sight. We also stumbled upon the gorgeous Cadiz Cathedral remember from last time, towering over a small courtyard surrounded by restaurants. It took over 100 years to build and definitely can be described as looming. Satisfied with our small accomplishments for the day (exploring, post office, and non-lido lunch), we headed back to warm up. Cadiz was definitely not as warm as its Canary Island counterparts.
