Living in Andalucia does not mean that we are bound to the hotel and sunbeds all days. For us travelling around is also an important part of our Spanish Life.
Since last blogpost we have moved around to different places and here I present some of them.
Plaza de la Merced where you can find Pablo Picasso´s childhood home.
Calle Marques de Larios we can sit down for a refreshment before starting on the way back to the train bringing us back to Fuengirola (55 minutes)
Before our next tour we can join some of our friends during the Happy Hours talks at the hotel Myramar.
A full day skipass for plus-seniors, costs only 5 Euro
This time of the year the heat (+ 12 C in Pradollano and + 2 C at the top, the snow was not the best but good enough to tick off one of the events in the bucket list. Tullen was very satisfied with her skiing on her birthday this year although she had dressed for more cold weather in the mountain.
From Pradollano to Granada city it takes about half an hour but be aware that travelling in the city may be difficult even with a GPS.
Alhambra Palace from one of the city squares.
Visiting restaurants and other locations in Granada give you an impressive view of the traditions in this area. This image is from Puerta del Carmen where we had lunch
The second image is from the brasserie Pinot Noir where a night cup could be taken in the bar before returning to the hotel after a late Spanish dinner.
Salobreña where we now have tried twice to find a parkingplace. Hopefully we will succeed the third time in the future.
The second break on the journey was the village Frigliana
Rincon de la Victoria
(the municipality with the highest well being of the province according to the Synthetic Indicator of Economic Welfare developed by Andalusian Analysts.)
It would be easy to jump into our next tour, birthday lunch with my sister Gerd at Puerto Banus, but first we had to join the annual Long-Stayers-Lunchon at Myramar where the management gives free lunch for about 60 people staying more than 28 nights at the hotel.
We were up to 147 nights in 2016 (21 weeks)
Daniel, Tullen and Don Carlos have to be photographed as long as we came too late to the group photo this year.
Then it is time to present our yesterday visit to Banus with the beautiful morning sun, some Yachts in Puerto Banus and Gibraltar and Ceuta at the African continent in the horizon.
Welcome back for more reports from the Spring / Summer at Costa del Sol within some days
