¡Hola todos! He vuelto de hermosa España and I'm ready to blog about mis aventuras. Since I took over 1000+ photos, I thought the best way to do this was post on a daily basis - that way you guys will be able to vividly capture the beauty of Marbella, Ronda & Granada. To give you a little background info on my trip, I went away on vacay for eight days to Marbella (Puerto Banus) with six of my girlfriends. We not only stayed in Marbella but went up to Ronda for a day (saw the first and oldest bull ring in Spain) & walked through the deserted streets of Granada (mind you, it was a Sunday; Sundays in Europe = everything shuts down... this was esp. true for Granada because it's a very religious city), while taking a bus up to BAHAMBRA Alhambra! Anyways, here's a quick summary (my rambles) of what I've learned from this trip about Spain, traveling, people, food, anything & everything...

[1] ZOOM Pizza (Puerto Banus) is 10xs better than Grimaldis Pizza (New York City)

[2] The only complete Spanish phrase I know & used for multiple purposes: "Querría un agua por favor" which translates to "I would like a water please"

[3] Didn't know t*&#hy Brits existed until Marbella...

[4] Traveling with seven girls will inevitably be packaged with bitchy-ness

[5] It is SUCH a small world

[6] Don't every pull a lever, especially anything that's red hahaha...

[7] Spaniards love music; they have bumpin' club mixes in their buses!

[8] It took 150 years to build Alhambra

[9[ DND: take a 2.5 hr CAB RIDE back home costing approx. 250 euros

[10] Obsessed with fanta naranja =)

Aww..I want to go back. What hotel did you stay at? I stayed at the Gran Melia Don Pepe, was beautiful, loved the churros con chocolate every morning. The beautiful Jacaranda trees. Marbella is definitely a gorgeous part of Spain. Can't wait to see the next post. xx-Jackie
