Sorry for taking so long to write a new post, the internet has not been nice to us since London! Adam and I are now in Malaga, Spain, and are loving everrryy minute of it! To recap, from Iceland we travelled to London for a couple of days and saw as much as we could like the busy little tourists we are in the little time we had. London is amazing and I can´t believe I will be calling it my home come September. I loved every minute we were there and can´t wait to spend some time on my own there this coming year. After London it was off to Paris for three days, and I don´t think I can say enough positive things about this amazing city. Aside from smelling like rotting animal corpses in some areas (however Adam and I were used to this, ergo Thailand) the sights, the people and the culture there were wonderful. We did a number of things while we were here including Versailles (AWESOME, and I got in for free so woohooo!) the Catacombs (again, awesome) of course the Eiffel Tower (not in the least bit underwhelmed but if you don´t think you would like 10 million street rats shoving souvenirs in your face you might want to think twice about going) Notre Dame (beautiful) and The Louvre (definitely tried to pretend I was in the Davinci Code). All in all, we loved it!
From Paris we travelled to Barcelona, where we only stayed for one night and wished we could have stayed much, much longer as it was AMAZING and sooooo lively and ridiculous, like myself! The harbour was beautiful and we saw lots of nice beaches and some of the more touristy sites as well on a tour bus, as we were only there for a little bit and wanted to see as much as we could. At night we ventured down La Rambla street, which is full of crazy street performers, lots of nice little cafes and bars and good shopping as well. I got a sweet vintage Casio watch and some knock off Ray Bans… oh right and we almost got killed while buying those… haha not really but almost (not). It turns out there was an undercover policeman amongst us crazy tourists and after I had purchased my sunglasses, he came out of no where and started chasing the 30 street vendors that were selling knock off everythings.. I honestly felt like we were on Cops ,and for those who know me know this is my favorite show, and therefore was loving every minute of it.
After Barcelona we arrived in Malaga yesterday and are here until tomorrow where we will travel to Nerga for some better beach action and then its off to Algerciras, Gibralter (hellllo monkey city) and then Seville and finally Morocco. We are having a fabulous time and doing as much as we can while we are here! Today is a beach day and then some touring later on and then hopefully getting drunk on some cheap Sangria. I will try and do another post with pictures (sorry) before we leave Spain!
I love you all, thanks for reading!
