What a fantastic vacation in Nerja Costa Del Sol. We had a fantastic night’s sleep. The sounds of the waves was fantastic, but we had no idea what anything looked like until this morning. Our location was obviously very close to the water. However it seems that all the buildings are right on the waterfront. There iss no walkway along the waters edge which I know we will miss. We have a beautiful view of the water, though no real sun on our balcony so I’m not sure how much we will get to use it.
The first day of our Vacation in Nerja. A bit of a late start this morning. Woke up around 8:30, lucky for us the owners welcome pack included some eggs and bread. So french toast it is for breakfast.
Around 10 we headed out to explore the town. We are pretty much right in the centre of town. This is the first time we have only walked a block before we have the first person asking us for money. Lots of little streets and shops to explore, we walked for about 3 hours then headed back to the apartment.
Our vacation in Nerja had a good start we now go and meet the owners for lunch. What a great time at lunch, a little bar just at the end of our apartment building. If you pay for a drink you get free tapas. This means a beer and 3 glasses of wine with lunch was 7.80 Euro. I think we will be back. We left 1.00 Euro tip, the owners told us we did not have to tip here, yep they are British. We had a great visit with them, told them all our plans and they seemed excited for us. I think we are taking on more than most.
When having a vacation in Nerja it is important to take on Spanish customs. After lunch, it was siesta time, then up and off to the grocery store for our first-bit grocery run. First big grocery run means stocking up on beer and wine for a couple of weeks, as well as some groceries. We both like grocery shopping in foreign countries, always fun to guess what you are buying when the labels are all in Spanish.
Eating is without doubt the most important thing when you are on vacation in Nerja. When we got home Andre made trout and salad for supper. It was good, but I think we need to invest in a decent frying pay, we’ll see what we can find.
Started a cribbage tournament. I will only mention the score when I catch up. We are her for five weeks and this is a long time to be on vacation in Nerja. Still no internet. Monday we will have to figure something as we need it for our work. There is an internet café right around the corner that may be needed, or there is a dongle type thing I am going to try to use first, we found the place to buy it today, but we were hoping to have other options when we met with the owners, no luck, so back to the drawing board on Monday.
