After a pretty stressful term of dissertation hand ins and exams, my housemates and I decided to book a last minute holiday to the south of Spain for a bit of chilling out before hitting the 'real world'. Definitely one of our better decisions - after probably spending a bit too long putting off revision to find a nice villa, we settled on a beautiful property on the outskirts of a small town called Nerja, about 45 minutes away from Malaga airport.
It was loooovely. The villa was in the perfect location with easy access to the beach, town and shops. The views were beautiful. The sun was hot. And the pool (and drinks!) were cool. What more could you ask for?
Day one was pretty cloudy (not that you can tell from this photo!) so we had a wander into the town
And to this huuuge aqueduct, which was used to transport water to the mill in the local village Maro
But other than clouds the first day or so, the weather was beautiful meaning plenty of trips to the beach to catch some rays and swim and canoe in the sea, which was the clearest I've ever seen!
We also got our final university results out there. Everyone was happy, so there was definite cause for celebration!
We also went to see some amazing flamenco dancers at a local bar for just €6 including a drink! We were even invited up on stage to have a little boogie at the end... not quite professional level yet!
A great holiday, and just what I needed to chill out after exams. Just want to book another one now! Where's next on your list?!
