Moving on to Malaga
Moving on from Córdoba was a little difficult, I’d found a terrific little place to stay (http://mayflowershostel.es, recommended), made the acquaintance of some nice folk, and really liked the atmosphere of the town. I fell into quite a nice little routine of morning coffee at a street café that somehow merged into a lunchtime beer. A few hours after lunch catching up with bits & bobs of work followed by tapas at a bar watching life go by.
I realised in Córdoba that actually what I needed was a holiday rather than a bike journey, they are not always the same thing, so having got that out of the way I really enjoyed the few days ride down to the coast at Malaga. The first two days were on dirt.. a mix of vias verde, vias blanco, and just plain old dirt tracks through the olive groves. The sun shone on day one, day 2 was kind of rainy with a lot of really sticky mud.. so on day 3 I took the road… Incidentally wikiloc.com is a super resource for routes such as this.
So.. Malaga Town. I’ve been here a couple of days and I’ve decided I like the place. It is not very touristy, most of the tourist traffic heads straight from the airport out to the coastal resorts. Happily. Rather it is very much a bustling, very Spanish town with a great vibe. I’ve enjoyed a spot of street photography here, I apologise in that it probably doesn’t document Malaga very well at all but rather might give a bit of a feel to the place. I can only be bothered to point my camera at things that make me think “oh, look at that..”.. and even then not always…
Flying home in the morning feeling much refreshed and in a much better place for the somewhat more challenging riding back in the Andes :-)
