& back to Dover.

April 25th 2019 - Boarding

There were three days at sea before we reached out first dry land at Malaga

The seaside part of Malaga, Spain

April 29th 2019 - Malaga

There were two items on out bucket list for Malaga, which we had visited a number of times before. These were the Cathedral & the Roman Remains. Lunch first, as we only arrived late in the morning & it took a long time to get in on the inefficient & expensive (€4.50) Shuttle Bus`. We ate in the tiny square to the West of the Cathedral. You have to get in on the North side of the building.
