Where to go? Part II
So, this will be my new city in just very few days!
~ ~ ~
I was looking at the map, and had learnt that the north was breathtakingly beautiful, but could be both rainy and chilly. Definitely not something I was interested in, me moving away from Norway in search of sun and all.
The east coast, from France and a long way down are all part of the Catalan/Valencian speaking Spain.
So I was left with the south coast basically. Costa del Sol.
Not a bad "left-over" at all! Known for its up to 320 sunny days a year, where tapas is religion and flamenco has its roots. I was quickly convinced that this would be a good place to start my Spanish experience.
So I concentrated on the south coast, googled some more to figure out where to go, and I decided on the capital of the region: MÀLAGA with half a million inhabitants.
