My one full day in Malaga resulted in a lot of lovely networking, a lot of tourist visits, and more drinking than I ever expected.
The day started out with the necessary meetings and information exchanges with all our partners and was followed by me spending the entire day in downtown Malaga by myself doing the touristy thing before meeting back up with my lovely colleague for dinner. I toured the cathedral, I went to the Picasso museum (oh my god), I had the Malagan version of a cosmo…it was a perfectly lovely day.
Much like Nice in France, Malaga is a typical European beach town – palm trees, cafes, lots of drinking…a little bit of heaven in the simplest terms. I do have to say that in terms of food, Malaga wins over Nice hands down. When I was in Nice I found the food quite dissapointing unless you REALLY wanted to pay for good food. Normal cafes and restaurants catered to tourists and because of that the quality of food suffered. But in Malaga the food was excellent. To be fair, I had a local taking me to dinner, which always helps, but overall Malaga wins for ultimate beach relaxation. Here are a few photos from my trip:
While the trip was short it was certainly lovely and I would definitely come back again. You really can’t go wrong with taking a little time off in the south of Spain…I mean, really. Who can complain?
Next up, the redemption of Madrid and back to France for one whole week!
