I arrived in Malaga, Spain, safe and sound, and so happy to be done with being on a plane\airport. I managed to snag an entire 3-seat row on our 7hour flight to Malaga which was amazing. Wasn’t able to sleep (what a surprise) but became friends with a few of the flight attendants so it wasn’t ultra terrible.
First taste of Spain has been really great, our apartment has a spacious terrace and everything we need (except it only has 1 bedroom and my dad snores 10x louder than a regular person)! The city of Malaga is beautiful: tons of crazy old buildings\ruins and right on the Mediterranean. Food is good, although finding meatless food is somewhat challenging. Best so far? Churros (a spanish doughnut) dipped in hot chocolate, holy yummy. Weather is fabulous, around 20 degrees and sunny. It seems every person living in Malaga is fit, tons of people were running by the ocean yesterday and rarely do you see a fat person that isn’t a tourist. Only downside is that they ALL smoke, ALL the time. They also look good\fashionable all the time and are soooo relaxed. Everyone sits down for coffee, the North American way of going into a Starbucks for a coffee (which we often take to go) does not exist, nor have I even seen a Starbucks.
We are going to Ronda tomorrow, a 2h30mins bus ride away to explore the little white houses that sit on crazy high cliffs.
Hope everyone is doing well!!!!
