Så er vi endelig tilbage med en opdatering for sidste måned. Vi undskylder igen, at vi er så ufatteligt dårlige til rejseblogs-konceptet, hvilket denne gang har resulteret i en lidt kortere og knap så detaljeret omgang. For endelig at få denne opdatering færdig har vi valgt at dele opgaven op - så hvis vi gentager os selv, eller det i det hele taget bliver lidt usammenhængende, må I lige bære over med os ;) Som de to flittige arbejdssøgende piger, vi nu er, har en enkelt ansøgning eller to faktisk givet pote; dog tvivler vi stærkt på, at netop denne eller disse to ansøgninger (ud af de omkring 80, vi har været ude med), var blevet afleveret, hvis vi vidste, hvad disse jobs indebar. Anna har prøvet kræfter med to tjener-jobs med varighed af to dage. ... read more

We leave tomorrow morning bright and early, but we just thought we´d end it all. Ryan managed to get a ticket just 50meters before dropping the bike back off at Hispana Tours today. The officer was not pleased, that he had made three traffic violations in a matter of thirty seconds and he was watching. It costs him 63 euro, and a wee heart attack. We managed to get the ticket down to two infractions instead of the three. He had to pay the ticket right on the spot, but didn´t have the money so I had to stay with the police, I suppose for insurance, that he would return ;) We say good bye to friendly people, fresh sea food, and the imaculate white buildings. ... read more

we arrived in Madrid and then flew to Malaga, where we were picked up by Eva, our Andalucia Travel agent. We were able to catch up on some Jet -leg and take in a flamenco show on the beach on the medaterian sea. So great - my dinners have consisted of lots of salt on fruit, which Im not use to but I love the rich coffees and all the tastes. Ryan can´t believe all the scooters we´ve seen, we´re surprised there isn´t scooter gangs. They handed over the BMW F650s yesterday, so were are very much ready to start our trip of the south. we don´t have a GPS, just maps; so I´m looking forward to getting lost! We´re finished breakfast and Anxious to start our Journey chau - Adios ... read more

Så kommer vores længe ventede opdatering af rejsebloggen endelig ;) Vi er som sagt flyttet ind hos to marokkanske piger, der studerer her i Málaga. Lejligheden er overraskende stor og ligger i et meget børnevenligt kvarter, så vores mødre kan ånde lettede op. Vi har hvert vores relativt store værelse lige ved siden af hinanden samt to badeværelser. Så endelig noget, vi har været heldige med, idet huslejen også er relativt billig (150 euro + elektricitet hver pr. måned). Dog er der et lille MEN: Hygiejnen - eller manglen på samme. Pigerne er rigtig, rigtig søde, men går desværre ikke ret højt op i hygiejnen. Og dog; de vasker køkkengulvet hver aften - det er desværre bare i det samme og efterhånden kolde og beskidte vand, der genbruges dag efter dag. Ironisk nok lader de så ... read more

Vi opretter nu en rejse blog, så jer derhjemme (eller hvor I nu er) kan følge med i vores nye og indholdsrige (…) liv her i Málaga - og evt. få et mere realistisk billede af vores tid her. (Vi får respons som om, vi er meget sejere, end vi faktisk er) Men for at tage det hele fra start, begyndte turen jo i Kastrup Lufthavn mandag den 7. September 2009. Dagen forinden havde vi rent tilfældigt fundet ud af, at vores fly alligevel ikke var direkte, men som den venlige (men ikke helt engelsk-talende) Iberia mand sagde: ”One stop, no changing flight!”. Derfor var vi ganske rolige, da vi satte os ind i maskinen. Men da vi så landede i Madrid, og ALLE forlod flyet, faldt humøret drastisk. Vi blev venligt informeret af en små-fnisende ... read more

A couple of days ago we went to the Feria celebration in downtown Malaga, followed by a corrida de toros (bull fight). It was a very fun and eventful day, if not a little exhausting. We drank too much Malaguenen wine - a sweet white wine, danced, and listened to the various flamenco bands and groups of women dressed in Sevillana serenade the masses with traditional songs. These are some of the photos from the day.... read more

Last night, the annual Feria event kicked off in Malaga. Around midnight, we walked down to the boardwalk with the kids to see the grand fireworks display that takes place at the port of Malaga. As I ran on the boardwalk yesterday morning, it was exciting to see all the festival booths being set up for the big concert taking place on the beach last night. We did not see the concert, since we had the kids and they were super tired. A couple of nights ago, Eva & I went downtown to dine and hang out with some of her old friends from the university - most of whom work as translators. It was fun to see all the preparations for the Feria in downtown as well. They hold the festival downtown during the day, ... read more

A couple of nights ago, Lucas, Ana (Eva's daughter), & I went to have tapas in downtown Malaga with my host bro Eugenio and his family. It has changed so much since I lived here 20 years ago, and is really cool! Lots of people out and about, and many streets are now closed to vehicle traffic. I took these pics while walking to and from the restaurant from Eu's house. So fun! You really get a sense of the modern justaposted with the past. It's magnificent!... read more

Lucas & I arrived safely a couple of days ago and have been to the beach each day. I´m making this posting in the hostel of my host sister Esther in downtown Malaga. It´s very cool, modern and hip, with beautiful Bougainvillea on the front terrace where people eat breakfast and hang out. This morning I met a German women and her son, a Portuguese couple, and a Dane with her half Danish/half Brazilian daughter. The Dane speaks Brazilian portuguese so we understand each other pretty well. It´s a lot easier to understand than Portugal portuguese. Lucas is definitely getting an international experience here. The Dane´s daughter only speaks Danish, but with kids they communicate well without language. We´re having a ball, and trying to get Lucas used to the time change. He´s made fast friends ... read more
