Malaga, Spain The city of art, the city of echoes and the city of yearning

Summer 2017 - After I gave up on looking forward to the real summer vibes, seeking a drench of sunshine on my dark desperate skin after suffering a heavily cold winter in Slovakia, a man who comes from one of the most perfect climates in the world, Egypt - I was craving sunshine so bad out of Bratislava.

Fortunately I was able to align with my wife to book a common vacation days from our work, we were able to manage a trip planned to the south of Spain in seek of breaking the life routine. I was lucky to have Andrea join me for 5 days in Malaga, while it wasn’t exactly warm as we were expecting (at least my self) we found ourselves a bit shivering in the sea while swimming, we soaked up all the sun we could get.

At one bar the older men sitting next to us bought us a glass of sparkling rose wine for no apparent reason even though he didn’t speak a lick of English, and another night out, a nice guy struck up a conversation with us and then proceeded to offer us some food.

After 1 and 1/2 years in Slovakia, that sort of thing is slightly shocking to me and to Andrea as well. No offense to my Slovak friends, but I have grown pretty used to generosity and sharing everything (which is much more common in Egypt) and cannot remember a time a random stranger bought me a drink since I moved to Slovakia or Europe in general :D

First Day:

Our first night in town we had short tour around the city center to discover and note the magical spots and get used to city, preparing for our PhotoTour which I was looking forward to it so bad. But we could not stay out that long as we were dead meats from previous night traveling.
