Spain Costa Del Sol ( Coast Of The Sun )

We have had the most wonderful and amazing half term holiday. Aaron has had fantastic multi culture experiences all week ! We caught the early morning flight from Liverpool airport to Malaga On the Costa del Sol Spain. Costa del Sol translates in English to coast of the sun. The plane ride went smoothly with amazing views of the sunrise not long after take off.

We arrived in Malaga in good time waiting fr us was a taxi which took us to are resort complex.

During the summer a lucky star shone down on me I won this holiday what a fantastic prize. We were all thrilled when we discovered what the week would have in store for us. We were not disappointed. Life today is so good at last we can all smile again. This is the first of a number of blogs relating to our overseas holiday.

It was not long before we reached our destination. The complex was beautiful 5 * we were also given a £55 voucher which converted to 62.50 euro,s to spend around the resort.

Within the resort was a Spanish riding centre, which held displays The horses were beautiful we gave some of them a pat.

A short walk from reception was the beach accessed through a tunnel. Here we found the Mediterranean sea. Warm and lush. The views were quite spectacular as far as the eye could see. Along the coast to Torromolinos and up towards Marbella. Inland the mountains of Spain stood out with the swirling clouds some laden with rain.

Aaron was delighted with the pool outside our department. The water was fairly cold though I ventured in once but had difficulty with my bones the next day. So I new it wasn't a good idea to venture in again. A German lady said I was very brave going in. Once in though it was a decent size pool to swim around in. Aaron had a lovely time and went in most days whilst we were at the resort. We sat and watched him having lots of fun.

The apartment we stayed in was beautiful with all mod cons. The balcony overlook the sea. In the distance we could see the cruise ships sailing by. It was such a relaxing place to be.

I managed to even get some time to sit on the balcony to read my book the Gypsy book " The Painted Caravan" recommended. A really good read.

We treated ourselves to a few meals out during our stay. The meals were lovely. The entertainment was also really good we listened to songs of the 80,s 90,s and Spanish music.One of the singers was international singer Jesus Palma who play his guitar as he sang songs from Pink Floyd Police Bryan Adams it was lovely relaxing and listening to the sound of his guitar. During our time here Aaron also got the chance to practice the new language he is learning Spanish. Considering he has only been speaking this since September he is doing fantastic. He can now speak 4 language including our own English, French, Spanish & not forgetting Welsh. I am so very proud of my son. He is a star.
