Arrival in Arroyo De La Miel - in the background is Benelmadena train station
The area I've stayed in before and this time I visited Malaga, Arroyo De La Miel, about 20 minutes from the sea
Downtown Arroyo De La Miel
A few years back I came on a skating trip to Malaga and we skated this park everyday - how it's changed now!
The Bellagio! well... not quite but I'm sure it's a nice hotel all the same
Library or 'Biblioteca' reflection in the peaceful Parque de la Paloma
If your a skater/bmxer then you're know the worth of this big wall that heads down to my hotel...
Big hotel near my own one. Was some great squeaking parrots in them palm trees
Just a bit further down the road from my hotel, I like the twisting architecture of this area
My hotel room which had a handy desk to do some work on and a great balcony view - £25 a night!
This was my view from my balcony at Hotel Betania - I did ask for a sea view but I didn't think I'd get it for the price I paid! kudos to Betania!
Hotel Spanish breakfast - about £2 a day!
Castillo de Bil Bil - waterfront cultural centre
Out of the five times I've visited Malaga I've always taken this boat trip from Benalmadena to Fuengirola, this time though I had a better camera and zoom lens!
The Osborne Bull - it was a advertisement in 1956 for 'Veteran' brandy and has remained in various places across Spain ever since!
The beach at dusk in Fuengirola - my favourite beach in Costa del Sol
Relaxing, even if it is only for a couple of hours
Limited edition Malaga water bottle - nice touch
The RENFE suburban train line that runs along the Costa del Sol is a great and runs on time - this is the palm tree lined Fuengirola station
The proud owner of this house have there own tiled artwork of said house - brilliant!
A plant lover if I've ever seen one
Recycling Spanish style
Liking the design of this housing block
A typical Spanish styled building - yellow and white theme colours
These street lamps have a very oldie London feel about them
There's some good story telling tile artworks along the side streets of the Fuengirola station
Goldisc record shop in Fuengirola
All packed and ready to head home after a great trip to Malaga!
