After 9 days crossing the Atlantic we arrived in Spain. A few factoids to tuck away next time you have a game of Trivial Pursuits: Cadiz is one of the oldest cities in western civilization. It was first settled by the Phonecians about 2000BC. Legend claims that Hercules once lived there. It was later controlled by Romans, Muslims, then Christians. When Napoleon invaded Spain, Cadiz was the only Spanish city that did not sucumb to the French.
