Hey! I’m Linn Haglund and I’m amused by Andalucia!

I’m so glad you’re here because that means you are too! And if you0re planning your first trip to Andalucia, you’ll soon be.

After living 10 years in Andalucia, I thought it was time to get serious about helping people to discover the best of the region. As a travel addict and owner of the travel blogs Brainy Backpackers, Amused by Algarve, and the local hiking blog Andalucia Hiking, I’ve already helped thousands of people explore Andalucia.

Throughout the years, I’ve joined local Fiestas, climbed the highest peaks, and hung out in the tiniest villages in Andalucia and this is the place where you can learn how to do the same.

My Andalucia adventure started in 2003 when I studied tourism in Seville. Later I opened a bar in a town outside the city, Bollullos de la Mitación (yes, I know you haven’t heard of it unless you went skydiving – it’s far from a tourist destination!) Then, after a few years of traveling the world, I eventually came back. This time to Costa del Sol in the Malaga province.

Exploring has always been my passion and every free moment (when I’m not writing or doing other blog-related stuff) goes to traveling locally or abroad.

Mostly with my pooch, Ayla, and our rock star van Persistence (Persi among friends.)

I’m super excited to show you Andalucia and hope you’re ready for the ride!
