So, I can report that the rain in Spain does not stay mainly on the plain. We are in the centre of an impressive storm this morning. Saves watering the plants though.
I can report that J is gearing up to do an entry but don't hold your breath.
Meanwhile here are a few random photos.
... These few minutes were enough to help me realise how much easier it was to follow as the path was effectively paved for me and by both watching the road and how Bob was negotiating the bends it made what was a challenging ride into a far easier affair.
We then made our way deeper and deeper into the Andalusian Mountains visiting one spectacular village after another stopping for lunch along the way and the occasional rehydration. These villages are ...
... over the world. Thousands! Some in flower and absolutely beautiful. Others......you'd have to be a botanist to love em. The owner, Mariano, took us around. Ten minutes in and I had him pinned as a Scot pretending to be Spanish. He had a pronounced Scottish accent complete with all the nuances and phrases that no Spanish person would know. Had to ask and no he WAS Spanish, born and bred in the same village we were standing in. He learned to speak ...
... Town. Such hardship.
It was great to catch up with both Sue and her lovely sister, Jane. Co-incidentally they had booked a week in Mijas for the week after J and I arrived. This was perfectly timed for our weekly chat.
So we had a fun few hours meandering around the cobbled streets of Malaga Old Town. We strolled around Plaza ...
... and walked back toward the hotel. We went up Calle San Miguel which was literally up, up, up with lots of steps. It was a pedestrian shopping area with shops on both sides. I bought a Christmas present in one shop and a new backpack in another. My old one which I have had for over 20 years is falling apart. We went back to the hotel for a rest. I tried to upload pictures but the Wifi was too slow, I couldn’t even get my email.

Historical Traveler Reviews Marconfort Griego Hotel Torremolinos
Having booked a late deal, we were totally unsure as to what to expect.
A very simplistic hotel which is within 10 minutes drive of the airport. A very pleasant beach, with a variety of water sports and many (comfortable) sun beds is a 10 - 15 minute walk away. Along the walk there are many shops, bars and restaurants, as the hotel is situated a minute or 2 away from the main town. A 10 minute walk away from the hotel is a crocodile park, which is next door to a brilliant aqua park.
Take your own sun brolly
This was the first time we have done a late booking we was very happy with this hotel good food very clean a little far away from the beach if you have young children. the pool is a very good size but the only thing that lets it down is to few sun brollys so come on get some more.
Good hotel but needs comedien etc. New ping pong net and maybe table ******
Whilst the Hotel was clean and tidy, the location is fantastic and the weather is lovely, the staff were grumpy and anything you asked them to do seemed too much trouble.
There was plenty of food at meal times, but don't be surprised if you come back looking like a chip!
Expect a rampage in the morning for a sun bed, the poolside is not big enough for the size of the hotel! If you do not get down to the pool for 9am you will nt get a sun bed or a position around the pool.
Good value for money
Good location - convenient for shops, bars, restaurants, bus and train stations. Food varied and plentifull, bar prices really cheap - couldn't complain at 1 euro for a glass of wine! Enjoyed our stay, but one word of warning - don't accept room 1110 - it doesn't have a window!!
Oh my Gosh
Im only 15 but have travelled around alot, this is the best hotel i have ever been to! The food entertainment, activities, people and situation and staff are all fantastic and i have stayed here for 4 years. Its a friendly environment and very child friendly. Everytime i visit something has changed either the dining room facilities, room decor, pool and so much more. Its a compact hotel but has everyting you will ever need and much more. Its not on the beach but its only 10 mins away! Its great and i go the same time every year! Its great for teenagers to as you can let them into town without a worry! Plase visit and have fun there! its great and maybe ill see u!
Spain it ain't
This is not a hotel for couples liking the sophisticated life. Whilst food provided at mealtimes is plentiful Michenlin standard it is not. Our room had rickety tacky furniture. The air conditioning was not available during the day when it was hot. Waste bins were at a premium. No details of the hotel and facitlites were provided in the room. Room service was a no no.All in all if you want a little luxury do not go here.
Very lively hotel !
Very lively hotel in the centre of Torremolinos. The entertainment team was fantastic. Thanks especially to Ales, Deborah and Amy ! Food was good and varied. Four bars with good prices for local and imported drinks. We come back next year !
Great place to stay
Very friendly hotel.Clean and tidy, All inclusive is your best option and they do a good picnic if you are going out for the day! Good distance from town and although not on the seafront it is only 10mins walk. Am going again this year for two weeks
