Last week my best friend and I went to the Costa Del Sol to chill and spend some much needed time in the sun! Our flight was super early on the Monday morning so we stayed at the Premier Inn at Gatwick’s North Terminal, of course we had to get a pic of our matching pjs in the bathroom mirror because the lighting was just right. We arrived at Malaga Airport early on Monday morning and went and collected our car which was a horrible colour Fiat Panda, we then drove down to Fuengirola which is around 20 minutes south of Malaga. We found a parking space and our first trip was to the Zoo where there were so many school children on a tour but we managed to spend a couple of hours looking around, we also got a really nice picture so that was a bonus. After the zoo we walked through the lanes down to the beach where we found a lovely café for a spot of lunch, whilst we were there we met a couple who used to live in Hastings but now live out in Fuengirola full time talk about small world! After lunch we went for a wander down onto the beach and it was then time to head back to the car to drive to our resort. We stayed at Club Marbella which is part of the Crown Resorts, a chain of family resorts with something for everybody, around the Costa Del Sol. The apartment was lovely and we couldn’t wait to get down to the pool and chill. Most of our holiday was chilling down by the pool where I watched the first two seasons of Line of Duty on Netflix and I read the whole of Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, we also did a bit of swimming in the pool. On Wednesday we ate at the restaurant on the resort as there were Flamenco dancers performing and I wanted to see them. At dinner I found the most delicious snack/starter of deep fried camembert with cranberry sauce OMG it was amazing! The Flamenco dancers were awesome as usual and of course there had to be somebody who kissed them at the end. On the Thursday we went down the road to Little Italy for dinner. We had cheesy garlic bread which was so gooey and delicious, I then had Seafood Pasta cooked to perfection in a tomato sauce and for dessert it had to be the classic Coconut Ice Cream served in half of a coconut, it was an amazing last meal of the holiday and I can’t wait to go back there for food sometime soon! We flew back to Gatwick late on the Friday night and it was safe to say that we had a fabulously relaxing holiday. I would also like to say how immensely proud I am of my best friend for conquering a lot of fears on the holiday from flying on a plane, to driving in a foreign country and speaking to different people without prompting, I knew how difficult the holiday was for her and it is safe to say she was tested a lot that whole week! Thank you for an amazing experience best one!!
