Malaga – Costa del Sol

Costa del Sol, means something like Cost of the sun, or Sun coast. Malaga has a population of about 600,000 and 6th largest in Spain. Artist Pablo Picasso and actor Antonio Banderas were both born in Malaga. We visited the Picasso museum but w was not impressed, in fact I’ve seen the work some of our art students do and they crap all over Picasso’s.


This is the mail walking street of Malaga, lots of shops and tourists and the food is great and the beer cold.

750 Euro gountain pen

Just wanted to let you see what a 735 Euro (approx. 1200 $AU) looked like. There weren’t

many customers in that shop.

Street art

Some street art near our hotel on the retaining walls on what used to be a river.


This is a photo of a bridge in the old town of Ronda. Unfortunately we were unable to take the tour as its late return to Malaga meant missing our flight to Valencia. So something to do next time.

On to Valencia
