Malaga

I’m back on the coast and arrived in Malaga this evening. One really great aspect of that, is that it is warmer, in fact I used my shorts again for the first time this year!

This is what it was like in the mountains near Sierra Nevada, not shorts weather…

Spent almost a day sightseeing in Granada. Lots of interesting sights, from small touristy back streets to old ruins. This is definitely a place I would like to return to and explore more. Hiking the Sierra Nevadas would be fun in warmer weather !

Since leaving Granada, I’ve been walking steadily. Need to move a bit if I intend to reach Gibraltar before it’s time to go back to Stockholm and do a few weeks work (and then on to the states!)

There are a lot of houses built into the hills in the area around Granada, I mean really built into the hills. Sometimes the only parts visible are the doors…

Yesterday, as I was leaving this beautiful view behind, I found some people waiting for me on the side of the road.

They had spotted me coming down the mountain, seen the signs on the Mule, checked out the blog and decided to stop and offer some encouragement. Always great fun to meet people who are interested in my little walk! 🙂
In fact, I was stopped again this morning and spoke to a lady about where I was headed.

Tomorrow, I intend to do a quick walk through Malaga and then continue south-west towards Gibraltar. Will probably stick to the coast, I need to store some warmth and sunshine before I head back to a wintry Stockholm, even if only for a short while.
