Malaga with Madre

You know what’s better than Spring Break? Spring Break spent at a beach resort in Spain with one of your favorite people! A few weeks ago (I know I’m late yet again but I’m not even gonna give an excuse this time. To be honest I’m just strugglin) I was lucky enough to get to spend the week in Malaga (well kinda) with my mom.

We actually stayed in a small resort town called Benalmádena and it was beautiful. Also a lot of British people travel here for Semana Santa, so an added bonus was that almost everyone spoke English!

And a quick shoutout to the Italian restaurant right by our hotel that had gluten free pizza AND garlic bread?!?! This is what dreams are made of. (Where are my Lizzie McGuire fans at?)


It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere

This trip was definitely a relaxing/lazy one and I will admit that for 75% of the trip I did not move from my pool chair. We went to the beach one day and laid by the pool almost every other day enjoying the warmth of the sun and the frigid water of the pool. I’m not exaggerating either. It was probably the coldest pool I’ve ever swam in.

Oh, did I mention happy hour was a thing? We definitely hit that up… on more than one occasion… hey, when in Spain!

Oh Granada

So, Mom and I decided to take a day trip to Granada to visit the Alhambra and get to see a new city. Although it required leaving the hotel at 8 am (which is not a real time) and sitting on the bus forever, it was an amazing experience. The Alhambra was beautiful and there were flowers EVERYWHERE.

You know those tacky tourists that have the earphones and are listening to a tour guide while following them like lost ducklings?

Yeah, that was us.

Side note, the tour guide could speak like 10 languages fluently and I truly appreciate him as a person. How is that possible? I’m here hardcore struggling through two.

So, I got the chance to introduce my mom to Spanish tortilla when we visited actual Malaga for the day and she loved it! (Right answer.)

We also stopped by the Picasso museum and I have to admit that, even though I’m an art nerd and love most art, I’m really not a fan of Picasso. I feel like half of his creations could be done by a 5 year old with a box of crayons. No comprendo.

BUT Malaga was gorgeous an I love spending time with my beautiful mother so it was great!

Overall I had an INCREDIBLE time over spring break and I am so thankful my mom was able to come down to spend it with me. Being so far away from everyone is really hard and sometimes you just need some quality family time, ya know? Plus there are very few things in this world that a mom hug can’t fix.
