A ideia principal era irmos conferir Nerja, pois a recepcionista em Granada disse que era linda!!! Como era apenas uma hora de Granada, pensamos em uma parada por lah e conferir. A cidade eh bonita, a praia tambem mas nao bateu o clique de ficarmos lah hospedadas, ateh porque queriamos viajar a costa sul inteira, aih a outra pernada da viagem ficaria muito longa. Recebemos indicacao de comermos Paella em Valencia, como nao comemos por lah, decidimos almocar Paella em Nerja mesmo. Delicia!!! Depois de alimentadas, continuamos a busca por um lugar para ficar. Entramos em Marbella, mas eh grande e sem charme. Tentamos tambem San Pedro de Alcantara mas tambem nao rolou o clique. Decidimos ir ateh Estepona, 6km apenas de San Pedro de Alcantara. Para nossa surpresa, Estepona eh estupenda!!! A cidadezinha um charme, ... read more

Today was a quiet today for all, especially for the kids. In the afternoon, Mark and Deb went out for a few hours while the kids relaxed around the Marriott. We started in Benahavis where we walked around the small town which was quiet except restaurants which were open on New Year's Day. Deb liked the hanging poinsettias in the town and of course the Santas hanging outside several of the windows. We decided we'd drive toward Estepona to have a drink outside in the sunshine. We stopped at Laguna Village which is just between the Marriott and Estepona. They have a Mai Tai Bar (Trader's Vic's) which was packed and then a cute beach restaurant with outside sofas and comfy chairs that Deb and I sat down for a drink. It was wonderful sitting in ... read more

Today was a relaxing day at the timeshare in Estepona. Everyone slept in and we spent the day relaxing in the beautiful sunshine. We were very happy with the resort and its amenities. The kids had a fun day playing basketball and soccer with other kids on the sport court and in the indoor pool. Mark and Deb enjoyed lying in the sun reading. For dinner, we drove to Puerto Banus and had dinner at an Italian restaurant recommended by Nancy, Amore y Fantistico. The pizza and pasta were great. Thanks for the tip Nancy! It was then back to the unit for a quiet night as tomorrow we are off to the Alhambra in Granada!... read more

We just had a wonderful week in the white town of Casares. We rented an apartment in the middle of the town and spent our week climbing up and down our 4 story home. It is a beautiful, small authentic town situated 10 km up a mountain next to the Mediterranean ocean. We had a terrace on the top floor where we could overlook Gibraltar and the mountains of Africa. Upon our arrival we met a woman named Beth, a Brit turned hippie Spaniard, who showed us to our place. She spent an hour and a half sharing must-do's of the town in a wonderful British/horrible Spanish accent. She wore neon green earrings and green converse. Quite a character. The town had a very slow feel to it; Men sitting in the main square, woman ... read more

This time it was off to Spain! We only had 3 days to explore - so it was go...go...go! Day 1: There is nothing worse than an alarm waking you up....especially when it goes off at 2:15am!!!! Yes, that's right - 2:15am. That's when we had to rise and shine to catch our 6:45am flight from Stansted Airport (London). At 3:15am we stepped out the door, walked a mile to Putney High Street, and waited for the number 14 to take us to Tottenham Court Road. We had a 5 min walk through the city to our next bus stop. It was 4am on Saturday so we had the pleasure of wheeling our suitcase through the hoards of intoxicated party goers (what fun...)! It was then onto another bus to Waterloo. By 4:45am we were ... read more
