Our escape from the non-existent London summer this year was a flight to Malaga, hire a car and stay in a small beach town called Estepona.

When not enjoying our hotel balcony which was about as big as our London apartment overlooking the coast and country, we took day trips to Malaga, Marbella and joined the festival in Ronda where we also managed to get into the biggest bull fight of the Ronda calander! We even spent an afternoon back in the UK (Gibraltar)

Haze was in heaven with our consant search for the best daily tapas bar and seafood paella.
