Paseo del Parque

Paseo means stroll, del parque means in the park. And this is the name of one of the biggest parks in Málaga. Clever, ey? (It’s also called Parque de Málaga, and Parque de la Alameda or simply el Parque, just to get things straight.) 

It’s right off the centre of the city, leading from the main street to the bull ring / Malagueta beach area, with the port to the left and the Alcazaba to the right. It’s about 1 km. long, and although it’s really close to trafficked streets it feels like walking in an enormous garden, it’s thick with plants, palm trees, flowers, cactus, benches with old people reading their newspapers, playgrounds etc. The perfect place to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the city. 

A little selection of images, as always: 

These flowers are ridiculously expensive back home, and here they just...grow in a park??!

Ahhhhh, the palm trees!!
This will almost be my last post from Málaga. (I have one programmed for later, my last goodbye to Málaga!) It's 1. October, and I am moving to Barcelona! In just a few hours I am moving out and leaving Brad behind. Not looking forward to that. Lucas and I will go to the airport together, so I can postpone that goodbye for a few more hours. 
Now, one last breakfast with the three of us together. Ah, I hate goodbyes, no matter how exciting plans are ahead. 

Have a lovely day everyone, hope the sun is shining wherever you are!
