Málaga and the Beach

Hola from Spain…we sailed for 1.5 days to awaken in Málaga, Spain, the birthplace and childhood home of Pablo Picasso. this charming waterfront town must really be bustling during the summer months. There’s a long beachfront lined with palapas umbrellas framed on the other side of the street by little tapas eateries and fancy clothing stores.

The Cathedral de Málaga is absolutely specular, you would be in awe of its scale. Once inside you will feel so humble and small. It was once Moslem occupied, but is now a Catholic Church.  Done in the Renaissance style, it is something to behold.

Waking in Savona, Italy

Buongiorno miei amici,

( good morning my friends)

We awake in beautiful Savona, Italy. Unlike American tours where everyone gets on at the first stop, and all disembark at the conclusion, this Italian cruise line is quite different in that it picks up and disembarks passengers at each stop. Savona must be their hub as it’s really busy here with many passengers joining at this spot.

What a charming little city, quite reminiscent of Monaco with its curved, palm tree lines streets along the waters edge. We ate at a tiny place and had the best linguini and clams ever, along with some great gelato.  We are off to a great start.

Spain and More

We are off on a cruise with Costa Cruise Lines.  Yes, I know it’s the company where the captain sank a ship, but hopefully that was a one time situation.  We chose it because of the locations.  The cruise starts in Barcelona and ends in Barcelona, one of our favorite cities, so come and follow along with us.
