    Jour 47 - Malaga.2

    August 12, 2016 in Spain

    Nous voila comme de vrais touristes! Propres, légers...
    Malaga est super jolie! Nous sommes contents de savoir sue l'on a de la famille ici et sue l'on pourra revenir!!!
    En se balladant, nous sommes passé devant les arenes, la porte était ouverte alors on est rentré! 😏
    Personne ne nous demande de payer ou de ticket alors comme tout le monde on choisit une place à l'ombre...
    On se renseigne un peu, ce sont les "Clases pratica" qui se preparent, c'est avant les jours de feria et les coridas, auxquelles on peut assister gratuitement...
    Nous nous sommes dit si c'est de la pratique ils ne tuent pas le toro! C'est parfait!!!
    Et bien non! Au premier passage du matador qui plante ses premiers piques dans les épaules du toro nous avons compris que cette pauvre magestueuse bête allait y passé 😦😢 Alors on est parti!

    Comment peut on aimer assister a une boucherie pareille! C'est vrai que les costumes sont beaux, la musique l'ambiance, le toro est impressonnant!
    Mais si on enleve les froufrous, les couleurs et les castagnettes! C'est une boucherie! ☹️

    May 11 in Spain

    We drove to the city center of Malaga, with some continuing issues getting around, but finally found a parking garage near the harbor and the tourist information center. We obtained a map and directions on walking to some of the best sites. The streets are like in a lot of Europe: they zig-zag and wind around, but Malaga is beautiful! Lots of landscaping and clean, beautiful walkways along the harbor, with pedestrian streets throughout downtown. Parking is limited and expensive, so we’ve seen all ages driving scooters. The old Roman Ampitheater is now used for concerts.Read more

    Malaga Cathedral

    May 11 in Spain

    The Cathedral of the Holy Incarnation is a beautiful example of Renaissance-Baroque style with Gothic features. There are two huge organs and a beautiful wooden "choir".

    The ancient Gothic chapel altarpiece (last picture) is for Saint Barbara. During the Spanish Civil War it was closed off and therefore not damaged.

    Day 405: Back to Malaga

    March 26 in Spain

    A slightly unfortunate consequence of getting the ultra-cheap car rentals and flights means that sometimes sacrifices have to be made! So it was for us; that despite being right near a major airport, we had to spend close to 5 hours driving down the south-eastern coast of Spain back to Malaga.

    Our car rental was a return hire (not one-way), and our flight was from the cheapest airport in Spain, Malaga. So back we went!

    Not really much to report from the drive, as most of it was inland and fairly boring scenery. McDonalds for lunch was a particular highlight! Though we did also slightly retrace some steps from last year, driving past a couple of spots where we'd visited not long after first arriving in Spain. Only about 13 months, but it feels like a lifetime ago.

    Filled up the car with petrol and gave it a wash too, then checked into the same hotel we'd stayed in 10 days ago when we arrived back on the mainland. Checked into our room and just hung around, writing and doing bits of work.

    Ate dinner downstairs at the restaurant which was passable but not brilliant. Early start tomorrow so early to bed as well!

  • Day5

    A walk in the neighborhood and on the beach was very relaxing. This is the perfect time to visit the Costa del Sol, as there are no crowds and it’s warm but not hot. A few people are lying on the beach. There is a large campground nearby and many people are there for the weekend, but it looks like their setups are long-term. The neighborhoods have a lot of rehabbing and new construction which Dean enjoys, and has a running commentary of opinions, of course.

    We are having fun trying to figure out the labels in the supermarkets. Sometimes we actually find what we are looking for, but we have made some mistakes. When buying fruits and vegetables, we found out that we need to weigh them ourselves and put a sticker on them. A lot of the tourists are English or Dutch, and are helpful.

    We wanted to try tapas so we went to a recommended bar, after driving the wrong direction again! The tapas are a quarter-sized portion of foods, usually served around happy hour—we had Spanish ham and cheese, seafood salad, a sausage cooked in wine, and chicken roll stuffed with spinach, sherry, and raisin filling, wrapped in ham. Dried ham is very popular in Spain.

    WiFi access is disappointing. It is not available in our room; we have to go to the restaurant next to the office.

    This is a former mosque, converted into a Cathedral after the Christian Reconquest in the late 1400’s. While it was a mosque, the Baths were used for purification before prayers, as well as for hygiene and socialization.

    Málaga, Spanien

    March 12 in Spain

    Die Hafenstadt Málaga an der Costa del Sol ist mit 570.000 Einwohnern die zweitgrößte Stadt Andalusiens, gleichzeitig die Provinzhauptstadt. Die Stadt ist umgeben von den Gebirgen Sierra de Mijas und Montes der Málaga. Eine große Festungsanlage aus dem 11. Jh. überragt die Stadt. Unsere Tour heute beginnt mit einer kleinen Stadtrundfahrt vom Hafen aus durch Málaga hinaus in die Berge.

    Movin on from Malaga

    January 30, 2017 in Spain

    Last day today in Malaga. Tried to find the Russian museum but found the wine museum instead. Interesting, five euros and two tastings included. It was 19 degrees today and I spent the afternoon on the rooftop terrace chilling in the sun. So nice.
