Well its freezing cold here in New York and forecast snow blizzards until ever!
That’s no good for us warm blooded males so we have decided as a group to venture off into the unknown a trip to Europe, well Malaga, Spain to be precise.
We have a few fans and friends that live over there and they have put me onto a local travel writer that writes about all things Malaga and Costa del Sol as she lives there, her name is Anna Collins.
The main reason is the weather but I can not wait to get my teeth into traveling around a bit. Spain is a city that intrigues me.
We will be arriving into Malaga Airport early next month and Anna has arranged for a local minibus company to pick us and our equipment up should it arrive on time in Malaga, Spain!
Madrid is the capital but its only 3 hours on a Renfe superfast train, 1.5 hours by plane and 4 hours by car. None of the band have much experience in driving on the “wrong ” side off the road so we are going to play it safe and get around by public transport , taxis and minibuses to gigs if we are lucky enough to get any, haha.
Most of the group is excited by this trip and have took part in some digging to see where we can goto and whats the best places to visit. Anna has recommended a whole list of things to do including.
- Fuengirola zoo
- explore Malaga city
- Selwo dolphin park and zoo
- cable cars
- Sierra Nevada Skiing
- Trying the local Spanish tapa and vino in Malaga tapas and bike tours.
- Visit the old ruins in Malaga.
- Bull Ring
- Mijas Pueblo
- smallest chocolate factory in the world
- Bill Joel tribute band
- Shopping in Puerto Banus
- Visit the old Town in Marbella
The list is endless but these are our favourites. It was awfully nice of Anna to get in touch and we are looking forward to meet up with her team when we get to Spain.
To get in touch with Anna hit her blog up at malagatravelguide.net or fire her over an email and Im sure she will help you pin point the best things to do in Malaga from an insiders point of view.
