Alive and in Spain!

After about 23 hours of travel and layovers, we finally made it to Spain! We flew in to Malaga and the woman that owns the place we're renting generously offered to pick us up from the airport to take us to the apartment.

We walked in to our little beach studio and this is what we saw from our balcony:


Can you believe that view!?

The very first thing we did, before unpacking a single thing, was pour ourselves 2 glasses of wine (which the woman had generously left for us) and parked our butts on the patio to soak the view in and say "Holy Shit, we're in Spain!"

We tried our hardest to stay up late "like the Spanish do" and headed out for dinner around 10pm.
To which I then had the best bruschetta of my life. I can't imagine how amazing it'll be when we get to Italy.

So anyway, we finally went to sleep around midnight last night and then...............
Woke up at 4 today. As in FOUR PM.
Whoops. There goes that day.

Right now, we're sitting inside of the local McDonald's because it's the only place where we could find WiFi.
I was hoping our apartment would have it, but alas, there is only a computer in the lobby to which I'm sure is from 1998 and made me want to gouge my eyeballs out just trying to send one email out to our families yesterday.

So McDonald's it is! And yes, their quarter pounders are amazing.

In other exciting news, we rented ourselves a scooter for the week! 


I offered to drive because The Dizzle has never done this before.

Picture this:

Me driving with a 6'3" half black guy behind me, holding on for dear life.
I may have driven one before, but I never said I was good at it. (Remember, I'm Asian. Good driving isn't really a skill I have.)
Fortunately, I managed not to kill us, though we did come very close to getting run over by a bus.

And that's all!

As for our travel blog, I think we'll update it more with photos and places we see. And well, so far we have yet to see anything major, so you'll just have to wait for an update on that one.

xoxo

  1. You made it! You must be so excited. Since your over in that part of Spain you should go and check out Granada, you may even be able to do it in a day trip from Malaga. Granada is my favourite place in Spain, when I was travelling I stayed there for five weeks :)

    Starbucks also often has wifi but you usually have to ask for them to print you a code... ya know, in case you get sick of McDonalds.

    jet lag is a total bitch, from my experience, it takes usually 2 weeks before you feel 100% human again! until then, drink shitloads of water, aparently that helps!? x
