Med. Melodies Encore

Oct 5, 2014 - Malaga

We arrived at Port in Malaga at about noon at which time we disembark and went on our excursion of a taste of Malaga and its region. We had a good and complete breakfast since lunch was not on the menu for us. We left the ship at about 12:15pm to board bus no 17. Our ride today took us to a genuine local cultivator of a wide variety of fruit trees. Among them were; oranges, figs, avocato, lime, lemon, oranges and grenadine... We had a small spuntino and went on our way to a little village named Allora. We walked through the old part of...

Sep 13, 2014 - Malaga is magic!!

Hola! Early start today because I have had enough of Madrid! It's just like Barcelona except that it's busier and has no charm, no river, no beach and no La Rambla! So actually it's nothing like Barcelona!! In fact the Prado Museum (and maybe some buildings) is the only reason I can think of to visit Madrid. So it's time to spontaneously take a 550km train trip to Malaga on Spain's southern coast (only 2 1/2 hours by fast train). Thank goodness for my go 'anywhere/anytime' train pass. It's quite cool here early on a Sunday morning so it's...

Spanish Adventure

Jan 25, 2014 - Malaga

Pushed on the 40 miles to Malaga but the weather had turned cold & windy so the shorts & tee shirt went back in their box for now. We weren't sure whether to stop at Malaga as there was only an Aire at a caravan storage compound on the outskirts. However when we got there it had a convenient bus service into Malaga running past so we decided to stop. We'd never been into Malaga before so thought it might be worth a look. We found out that Malaga was the birth place of Picasso & there is a Picasso museum in the centre. Not really liking his...

Nov 6, 2013 - Malaga - Spain

Decided to take the walk into town. I took the opportunity to stroll along the beach before cutting inland to the ‘Plaza de Toros’ an amazing bullring with a seating capacity of 15,000. Slight deter as I was lost before the climb up to ‘La Alcazaba’ a fortress built in the 11th century. Next on the list was the ‘Museo Picasso’. By now I had been walking for 3 hours so it was a stop at a local Tapas bar, watched some flamenco, listened to a gypsy guitarist and other music and then strolled down the leafy boulevards on my trek back to the...

Where is Shirley?

Nov 1, 2013 - Malaga, Spain

We took another Hop-On-Hop-Off bus tour and the bus stopped at the parking area of the Gibralfaro Castle. The city was founded in the 8th century by the Phoenicians. Built over Greek and Phoenician ruins, fort is the result of a series of rebuilding efforts in the 14th and 15th centuries, when Malaga was the main port for the Emirate of Granada. The site offers a commanding view of the city, bay area and mountains. During your drive through Malaga you will pass numerous outstanding structures of Mudejar and Gothic architecture, lovely parks...

Sep 23, 2013 - Boda Española

My padre's niece got married on Saturday and they brought me with them to the wedding! Here is a picture of my Spanish family. Starting with me on the left, then my padre Agustin, madre Carmen, hermano Chico, Chico's girlfriend Christi, hermana Laura. The wedding was a two hour drive away in the province Malaga in a little pueblo called Tabe (Tube? I don't remember). The town was all on this little hill that just had winding streets all the way to the top. I put some pictures up of the views from the town. It was very pretty! I got to meet...

Jun 21, 2013 - Malaga, Spain

Today was another “new” spot for us. We are in Malaga, on the coast of Spain. From our experienced travel friends, we hear that Malaga is small and walkable so we opted for the shuttle from the pier to the center of town. The cruise terminal is new and state of the art, the shuttle bus is new, the entire port area was beautifully laid out with shops and restaurants with a beach at the edge. The Main street after the drop off was very attractive with flowers, fountains and statues. The side of the street was lined with horses and carriages,...

May 19, 2013 - Malaga day 2

I woke up with the sound of lots of people walking around and heading off to check out or to get breakfast. All of the floors in the hotel are tile. So every step, every person, is heard no matter where they are. I got up and got ready to have breakfast. It wasn't very late, so it wasn't like I'd slept in until midday. Breakfast was OK. Given the amount of British tourists, I had an "english" breakfast for the first time in ages. I then went back to my room, and checked emails and did some work for a little bit (and only a little bit!). I...

May 18, 2013 - Malaga Day 1

This weekend it is going to be quite cold and wet in Madrid. Yesterday instead of the usual 25 min bus ride home, I had over an hour, as the traffic ground to a halt with the heavy rain. So, when I heard about the poor weather, I thought I'd do my best to ensure I could enjoy my weekend and get away from the rain. I checked the satellite pictures and the forecast for the weekend, and there was going to be rain everywhere in Spain except Malaga. So, with that, I was heading to Malaga! The train ride down to Malaga was quite interesting. I...
