So, we finally arrived. After 16 grueling hours of travel, we arrived in Benalmadena Costa just after midnight. Exhausted, dirty, and starving, we washed up quickly & went walking down the road for some food. I am a bit embarrassed to say this, but our first meal in España was Burger King (cringe!). I don’t even eat BK in the States, but it was nearby and open, and we were pretty desperate for something to fill our growling bellies.


Luckily, BK was right next to the stairs down to the beach, so we decided to have an impromptu picnic. Our first time to see the Mediterranean, and it was pretty dark, so we only got to see the breakers crashing on the water’s edge. It was still nice. A little chilly, but I absolutely love the sound of the ocean.


Now we’re cuddled up in the “bedroom” nook. Actually, the crazy part is that the nook had 2 twin beds on opposite corners. We had to rearrange the furniture so my husband and I could sleep in the same bed. And it’s not like we could just push them together. Oh no! There’s a permanent night stand between the two beds so we had to rearrange the whole room to put the 2 beds together. What’s up with that!? Crazy place. Despite that, the place seems nice enough. We got a lot of activities and tours we wanna do. But right now, I’m too exhausted to figure out what we’re gonna do. I’d be out like a light now except that my body doesn’t seem to be convinced that it’s after 3am.
