Kim’s Travel Diary

Location: Southampton, England

MapWell I'm back from Spain already! My how time does fly when you're having fun! It all started when............

Friday the 12th Sept, we boarded a plane form Bournemouthe airport and 2 and a half hours later arrived in Malaga, Spain. We caught our taxi to the hotel, trying to make conversation with Diego our taxi driver!, to whom I kept saying RAPIDO!! as that's about all I know! We had a drink in the bar, then unpacked and fell in to bed at about 1am.

As I said that first day we shopped around Torremolinos, came back and relaxed around the pool then enjoyed dinner and entertainment on the terrace.

Sunday we walked all the way along the boulevard up the Benalmedina did some more shopping then did much of the same, swimming, eating etc!

Tuesday we caught the train to Fuengirola Markets where I bought my D&G sunnies for 10 ...I tried to barter but the guy wouldn't budge!

Wednesday was a great day, we got a bus to a typical Spanish village called Mijas, situated right on the top of the Mountain. The journey took just over and hour and only cost 1.80! You will see from the photo's how pretty it is.

Thursday we went to MORE markets at Torremolinos near the bull ring then made our way back down the hill to our hotel. That night we got front row seats to watch a tribute westlife band but were disappointed when this girl came on the stage and said 'sorry I know I'm not Westlife but here I am'! but she was fantastic...of course she was, she was welsh!!

Our last day friday we just relaxed and enjoyed our last day in Spain and before we knew it we were back in Bournemouth airport and finally got in the door about 2am! That flight back was so funny, we were so tired and silly that everything was funny!

All in all it was a great holiday and what a great feeling for me to cross another country off on my list!

I hope you enjoy the photo's and I will be back at this space soon
Lots of love xxx
