A Week In: Malaga - Pt.1

Another month and another adventure! This time Emily and I headed off to Malaga, for a relaxing week away to unwind. I still took my camera and snapped my way through the holiday but not with as much importance as usual. I’m breaking this week down into 2 posts as I don’t have lots of photos to share. Let’s begin.

Our first day started at the buttcrack of dawn! 2 am to be precise. Off to the airport at 3 am to catch our flight at 6 am to get us into Malaga at around 10 am local time. After a hiccup at the airport, I won’t go into that, we arrived at our Airbnb at around 11:30 am. Our first day was spent wandering around Malaga to find our bearings and get to know where everything is we would need. First on the list was the main shopping street, Calle Marqués de Larios, where we found a  beautiful fountain in a lovely open square. From there we wandered down towards the port (where I took the picture you see below), diving in and out of shops as we went. From the port, we headed over to the Larios Centro Mall to do some grocery shopping to get us through the week. After such an early start, and spending most of the day walking, we had a siesta before heading out for something to eat. We ate in a lovely Tapas bar, which I cannot remember the name of at all, but trust me when I say it was amazing!

Our second day started later than we wanted but we must have really needed a lie in. After a lazy morning, we headed off the beach, the Malagueta beach, to spend all afternoon in the sun. I had to take the obligatory tourist photo of the sign but after that didn’t touch my camera until the walk home where I snapped this picture of the town hall between the trees that lined our walk home. After showers, we headed out to eat again, this time at Restaurante Bar La Bouganvilla where the food was amazing once again! The menu was a typical Mediterranean menu with fish and meat but there was something for everyone and we can highly recommend it. After our meal, we walked down the road to the Sala Premier Centro pub where we ended our evening with a cider, very Spanish.

Day 3 was an adventure day which consisted of an adventure to the beach in Torremolinos. Can you see a trend starting yet? We hopped on the train mid-morning and were there not even 40minutes later. First port of call was a café for an adult refreshment, we were on holiday after all, before having a wander around the shops which was soon followed by posting up on the beach for a few hours. As evening drew closer we packed up and grabbed a bit to eat at a seafood restaurant called Chiringuito Los Bandoleros where we had Pizza, just what we were craving! The food was great and just what we needed after an afternoon lead down. From the restaurant we made our way back to the train station, popping into a few shops along the way. Once back in Malaga we headed straight back to our Airbnb, showered up and headed out for a few evening drinks. We chose to spend our evening in El Museo de la Ginebra where we knocked back a couple of rounds before calling it a night.
