By now you should already know that I love traveling (last week I gave it a try via my fairytale photos in Albania & Scotland), you should also know that I love to take my lazy backpack and go for a month traveling around a chosen destination with no budget & no planning (this is how penguins do it).
It will be difficult for a lazy penguin like myself to choose Spain this time (because of their weather), because I might melt there dear friends, it is like 40 degrees now. Nevertheless, I did my best to gather up 10 photos that translate Spain into a fairy tale destination!

8. Cudillero, Asturias
Cudillero is perched on a cliff and is so cute that it looks like it came out of a painting. When you visit, prepare your mind, your camera and especially your body. The town has amazing views from above, the downside is that to see them you will have to climb quite a few stairs and/or slopes.
