Days 234-235 Spain to Gibraltar and back

Posted By: Baigrie Family in England, General, Gibraltar, Spain    

Steve spent 9 days completing his Day Skipper sailing course with the Hot Liquid Sailing Company, based in Gibraltar.  During this time the boys and I hung out in Marbella doing very little!  On Steve’s last day the boys and I got the bus to the main bus station in Marbella and then a bus to La Linea on the Spain/Gibraltar border so that we could all meet up.  Just in case...

Hola!  Just a quick note to let everyone know we made it safely to Spain.  We are based in Marbella for 24 days, enjoying the sunshine and beach.  Here is a photographic journey of our week so far (and a few words) …

Day 212 London to Malaga, Spain

Posted By: Baigrie Family in England, General, Spain    

I started the day with a walk down to the local Sainsbury’s in Croydon to buy milk for our cereal and a top up voucher for our internet dongle.  Back to the hotel for brekky and then I made use of the hotel gym.  When I returned to the room everyone had risen and we got ourselves organised for a busy day of travel.  Steve had attempted to call the car hire company to see if...
