Sep 25, 2009 - At sea in the Mediterranean

Great sleep in watching the sea out of our balcony door, then off down for a rather large breakfast. 10am and outside on Deck 13 by the pools for a Salsa dance lesson to wear some of the food off. 11.30am and a singles meeting. Then more food - this time out on Deck 13. After lunch into the togs and out on the deck chair around the pools for the afternoon listening to a great Latin band. There were people dancing everywhere - near the band, on the walkways, in the paddling pool - Salsa, Argentine Tango, fast Waltzes. 2.30pm and we sailed...

Aug 29, 2009 - Malaga and Mijas

The National bus system in Spain is excellent with frequent time tables throughout the country, so our bus ride from Granada to Malaga wasn’t bad at all. Malaga is a port city in Andalucía with lively streets, and we are staying here for 2 nights as a base to visit the small white towns and villages at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Spain is probably the least English-speaking country that we’ve visited so far, and we have encountered some communication problems every now and then, but we somehow managed to get what we...

Aug 10, 2009 - Back in Malaga

A quick revist to Malaga to settle Wayne into the Hostal Capri again and take a quick swim in the Mediterranean one last time...this trip! We had a nice bite of lunch right on the beach and then headed in the car to the airport. We dropped off the rental and then checked me in - all going very smoothly with no surprises. I said goodbye to Wayne and we made communication plans for his trip into Morocco over the next few days. it was an amazingly wonderful trip with a very dear brother. Now its almost over and its time to reflect but I will...

Aug 4, 2009 - Arrive in Malaga

So as sun rose over Greenland my Monday somehow turned to Tuesday. This day so far has seen me experience my first bout of air sickness, land in Frankfurt, leave Frankfurt, land in Madrid, and truly experience travel on my own in a foreign country. I am wishing I could speak many languages, because although everyone everywhere I have been is excellant at speaking English, I feel so incompatent HAVING to speak English to everyone! Waynes´ right - Spanish is a beautiful language. I love when everyone says ´O-la´ to each other. (Thanks...

Mar 19, 2009 - Our first day with Inger and Otto in Benalmedena south of Malaga

Here we are -- now it is the 20th of March and we are enjoying the fantastic weather here today. The last two days have been quite rough with waiting in airports and going from terminal to terminal. The flight with Lufthansa in First class was fantastic. We were treated like Royalty and had the best seat on the plane - row 1. We we served champagne, the best wines, "bloody Caesars", sherry and port and much more. The food was as good as you would find in any **** restaurant in Vancouver. We had caviar, truffles, duck, salmon, beef...

Jan 8, 2009 - A Day in Malaga

Today we took the bus into the city of Malaga! I of course went to the bus terminal the day before to get the schedule, and being Erin, I read it wrong, so we had to wait an hour for the bus rather then 15 mins for the bus, BUT OH WELL!! We got into town around noon, and walked from the bus station down to the port area. Here we started to take a lot of photos and walk toward the old part of Malaga in search of some of the famous land marks. Our first stop was the Cathedral de Malaga, which was totally beautiful. Mike really took his time...

May 30, 2008 - Spain...and beyond

Our epic journey ends with... Taxi, Bus, Taxi, Ferry, Walk, Bus, Bus...14 hours to get from Chefchauoen to Costa del Sol via Tangier and Algercerias. The ferry ride was the highlight of the journey, even though it was an hour late departing, we happened to be 2 of 6 people (not counting crew or freight containers) and the only food we had was 1 chocolate twinkie, a small bag of chips, fanta and a coke...we sailed past the ROCK, of Gibralter that is...even though we knew to expect something big, it is still bigger than anything we expected...

Morocco 2008

Dec 24, 2007 - Malaga

I'm not quite sure why I've come here, I could have gone straight to Algeceras from Granada but thought I'd have a quick visit to the Costa del Sol first. I think it also means that I will get to the ferry earlier tomorrow and homefully get to Fes by Christmas night. I've heard a few people running Malaga down but it's not that bad and certainly ok for one night, they also have the best christmas lights of this trip. So, I got to spend christmas eve in Spain, I had a room with a TV and was doing a spot of early evening chanel flicking when...

Dec 8, 2006 - Malaga

Up and out of our hotel by 8am, even though it felt like it was only about 5.30am outside- still quite dark and chilly and not many people about. After a quick run to the public bus stop we jumped on a bus that took us to the bus station where we had a hot chocolate while waiting for our bus to Malaga. Got on the bus at 9am, pretty empty bus so we both got window seats. It was a lovely trip to Malaga, beautiful country side to look at. Took about 3 and a half hours to get to our destination. Once in Malaga we walked into the city and...

Jun 30, 2006 - Malaga, Spain

We planned on going to Malaga to see the Cirque du Soleil 'Dralion' show, which is playing there this summer. We arrived there without a place to stay, which isn't the best idea. We even knew we'd be there that night months ago.. lesson learned(we're booking hostels all over portugal and spain right now for the next few weeks). Fortunately we ran into some Argentinian girl who spoke fluent spanish and english and she helped us find a place, as she was in the same predicament as us. The cirque du soleil was on the complete other side of...
