      Rückweg incl. Tapas und Drinks

      February 19, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

      Nach dem Museum entschlossen wir uns, die knapp 4,5 km in die Stadt zurückzulaufen. Da es bereits Mittagszeit war, machten wir an einer Bar Halt, um dort was zu essen und zu trinken.
      Der Rückweg zog sich dann dich ganz schön, so dass jetzt erstmal Verschnaufpause im Apartment angesagt ist, bevor es nachher u.a. in eine Karaoke-Bar gehen soll ... immerhin soll Padraig ja auch mal ein wenig leiden...Read more

    • Day 14


      June 9 in Spain ⋅ ☁️ 25 °C

      Der Plan war eigentlich auf das ein oder andere Bier an den Strand zu gehen und den Urlaub dort gechillt ausklingen zu lassen. Aber erstens kommt es anders und so weiter und so fort 😃 Nach einem Bier einer Strandbar hatte ich die Idee am Strand spazieren zu gehen in die nächste Strandbar. Die entpuppte sich dann als recht schicker Schuppen und wir sind dort hängengeblieben und kamen dann völlig unverhofft zu einem romantischen Dinner am Strand😃. Mit köstlichem Fisch vom Grill😍. Der Laden war gut gefüllt, aber nicht voll, es waren nur Spanier dort, ich glaube, hier ist die Saison noch nicht so richtig losgegangen. Zum Glück, denn eins ist sicher: zur Hauptsaison will ich in dieser Gegend definitiv nicht urlauben 😃, da gibt es schönere Orte! Aber ich denke, die Spanier sind in diesem Punkt wie die Italiener: je voller ein Strand ist, umso besser ist das! 😀 Also: wer DAS mag, ist hier goldrichtig… wir hatten jedenfalls einen perfekten letzten Tag und verabschieden uns nun allmählich von Andalusien 😥.Read more

      Travellers' Wisdom

      June 25, 2016 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

      I like to present a nice collection of things I have heared on my travels so far.
      I hope you enjoy as much as I did 😉

      "Don't drink tapwater in Europe! They add chloroform - it will kill you!" - a girl from Turkey

      "Germany is not a production country. Therefore you can't learn things about logistics and production processes in german universities. To learn this, you have to go abroad!" - a guy from Germany

      "A minium wage of 8,50€ is too less. Just think of the people who only work 1 hour per week - how can they survive?" - a guy from Brasil

      "In Europe it is not possible to make savings, because you earn little and living costs are too high! The europeans spend all their money for living." - a girl from Brasil

      "I don't order desserts in Restaurants. I have the feeling they are no experts in this field." - a girl from Germany

      "Oh wow - this movie shows 2nd world war. That means...America fought against whom?" - a girl from Austria (stated proudly that she just passed her A-Levels in Austria)

      "I think, germans hate to smile! They are in a bad mood always. Btw - where are you from?" A grumpy girl from China

      "It's awesome - you don't tip in Europe! They just don't want the extra money." - a girl from USA

      "Which kind of blood the Sangria is made of? The pigs or the cows?" - a guy from USA (Remark: "Sangre" means "blood" in spanish...actually it should be obvious, that the name "Sangria" describes the drinks colour,not its ingredients)

      El Oro de Klimt in Malaga

      March 11, 2020 in Spain ⋅ ☁️ 72 °F

      “When I paint, one of my greatest feelings of pleasure is the awareness that I am creating gold.” — Gustav Klimt.

      The shuttle bus that was taking us from the ship into the heart of the city was passing the Centre Pompidou Cube when a poster caught my eye. It was promoting an exhibit featuring Gustav Klimt ... one of my favorite artists. He is probably best known for his “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer” (featured in the wonderful Helen Mirren movie, The Woman in Gold) and another work simply known as “The Kiss” ... both painted during his “gold phase."

      Entitled El Oro de Klimt (The Gold of Klimt), the exhibit promised an immersive experience. I had no idea what that meant, but we’re talking Klimt here ... how bad can it be?

      In fact, it was terrific and well worth the detour that required walking back to the Cube ... and the admission of €9pp (senior rate). Turns out this is not an art exhibition in the sense that you look at paintings on a wall. Instead, you walk into a dark room, find a seat — either a bench or a comfy bean bag — and watch Klimt’s paintings come alive on the walls and floors all around the room ... with accompanying music. It was fantastic. I felt like I was inside the artist’s palette. I was so enthralled that I didn’t do a very good job with the videos ... I’ve included one of them anyway.

      We were especially lucky with our timing as we had maybe 10-15 people in the entire salon ... unlike the next session that was filled with a couple of busloads of kids ... elementary school and younger!!!

      Arrived in Malaga

      March 11, 2020 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 70 °F

      Quickie footprint to say we’ve made landfall. Allure is in the process of docking ... I think. We are on the port side of the ship with a view of the city but not of our berth. Off to breakfast and then off the ship to do some sightseeing .Read more

      Málaga, Spain

      May 11, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

      Last time I was here in Málaga I had a walk up towards Castel Gibralfaro, I say up towards, as I never made it to the top! For a change I listened to my body and the slight pain in my chest was saying that's far enough you old fart. Anyway while I was taking in the beautiful views I noticed a bullring down below, and today that's what I set out to find.
      It's actually called "Plaza de toros de La Malagueta" and was built in 1876, and is designated a Spanish cultural building, which I suppose is the same as a listed building back in the UK.
      Even though I'm not a blood sport type of person, it was still an interesting place to visit.
      For the princely sum of €1.80 you could go in to the arena and also visit the small museum.
      It all made for a very pleasant morning off the ship, and once again proved my point that in most cases you do not have to travel far from the ship or pay for expensive tours to find interesting things in most ports.

      The old Legend of the seas

      May 11, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

      When we docked in Málaga, there where two other ships in, one was the Rhapsody of the seas, and the other was the old Legend of the seas, which now has a new life with Thomson cruises as the new Discovery 2.
      It was really nice to see her all decked out in her new livery, and it's amazing how quickly it was done, as we were sailing on her for her last voyage as a Royal Caribbean ship only 6 weeks ago.
      Anyway as I said it was nice to see her again, and I hope she serves Thomson cruises as well as she did Royal Caribbean. I'm sure she will.

      Block House, Malaga

      March 5, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

      Fra vores mange turer rundt i Tyskland, kender vi jo udmærket restaurant kæden Block House som er det Tyske svar på Jensens Bøfhus og vi blev overraskede over at finde en af disse restauranter her i Malaga.

      Vi valgte at spise herinde en sen aften og både maden og betjeningen var bestemt udmærket. Rødvinen (husets) var faktisk ret god, men vi kan til gengæld ikke anbefale deres Weissbier...

      September 12, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

      Heute sind wir mit AIDA in die Stadt gefahren. Auf dem Programm standen Besuche des Picasso-Museums und des Geburtshauses des Künstlers. Unsere Reiseführerin war gut im Thema und konnte ihr Wissen auch gut rüberbringen. Im Museum durften wir leider nicht fotografieren. Anschließend haben wir bei einem Stadtspaziergang noch Wissenswertes über Málaga erfahren. Die Tour endete bei Wein und Tapas im Restaurant Pimpi. Der Ausflug hat uns gut gefallen. Jetzt heißt es aber die Beine hochlegen und auf den Abend vorbereiten.Read more

      Larios Shoppingcenter

      June 9, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

      Danach sind wir in das Larios Shoppingcenter unweit vom Bahnhof gegangen.
      Natürlich wusste ich, dass es dort den Disney Store gab, gekauft habe ich aber nichts.

      Im wirklich großen Supermarkt haben wir dann Verpflegung geshoppt.Read more
