October 2018 - Malaga, Spain

Literally jumped off the boat in Gibraltar and headed for Malaga, Spain to experience a city I had missed on my way around the Southern coast on my September Motorbike trip, which according to everyone it was a place I shouldn't have missed and they were right...

Malagueta Beach



















An unexpected fall out with Sally Paranautico for reasons likely connected to her sailing anxiety.  In addition, the poor weather forecast for the next week helped me decide to pack up and "ship out."  I had a quick thought to stick around Gibraltar for a day or two, but man is accommodation expensive! 

Airfield gate


A few hours bus ride and a little nap to help the energy level after a 4:30am start to the day I found a good spot in the Centre for a few nights before flying to Hamburg.

Exhausted

Was a river on the map

lots of construction

A city in rebuild mode

Never did get the history of the river

Awesome Kick Volleyball match


More construction, late arrival.

Hey!!! That's my favourite brand.
Daikin!

Flash Back - My claim to fame in New Zealand 2011... Daikin Commercial... 

Malaga is a good size city with lots of history, beaches, marina, hiking near by, tourism and the home of Antonio Banderas. And of course the famous Spanish nightlife and food.  Tour time...

I wonder if a drunk guy fell into this?

It's got to be good

Tasty Tapas at Casa Lola
