We started to talk about such a holiday several years ago. Would it be possible, could we afford it. Would our family members like it, Where to go. When to go. Etc.
There is always something that can make things difficult. Jobs, schools, ages, sickness, other plans and interest etc., but without trying you may have lost an opportunity forever.
This photo will for me be the image of what we wanted and what we achieved.
5 grandchildren between 3 and 11 from UK and Norway gathered together for the possibilities of having fun.. and we know they had fun.
We have learned new things about our family members and ourselves during this holiday, but we are very happy doing it and will try it again sometimes in the future. Planning for that has not started.
On this departure day we will only think back on this gatherings positive results and carry them in our hearts forever, Thank you Mari, Henrik, Helene, Hedda and Maja, plus Trine, David, Rikke and Tor Marius for what you have given us.

This photo taken by my wife at 7.51 am this Thursday morning is that kind of image. On her daily walk along the beaches the mist suddenly disappeared and the beauty of Costa del Sol had to be documented on her iPhone. Well done.

The summer festivities in the city have their roots in the commemoration of Málaga's incorporation into the Castilian crown by the Catholic Monarchs who made their triumphal entrance into the city on 19 August 1487. In 1491, coinciding with the religious celebrations of the Cathedral Council, the Municipal Town Council decreed popular festivities were to be established. It was in 1887 with the celebration of the 400th anniversary of the Catholic Monarchs’ entrance into Málaga that these festivities regained their original splendour. Málaga’s August Fair has reached us as an expansive, cosmopolitan and international Grand Summer Fair that illustrates the capital's character as the leading tourist area in Europe, and the City of Málaga as the nerve centre of the Costa del Sol and its Metropolitan Area.
Some of the main events include the inauguration of the fair accompanied by a firework show, the Romería (pilgrimage) where horseback riders, horse-drawn carriages and people on foot accompany the bearer of the fair standard to the Sanctuary of the Virgin of Victoria, the fair in the city centre, where you can savour wine and tapas while listening to music all along the ancient streets of Málaga and the Fairground offering marquees, live music and fair attractions for the enjoyment of visitors. If you need a guide for the Málaga Fair, you can see our suggestions for a day there or consult the official programme.

the early bird gets the worm is valid every morning when the security personnel opens the gates for the pool area. Lots of people have been queuing up for the 10 pm opening of the night closed gates and are running to the "best" beds.
