Malaga, ​the destination, you have to visit

Are you looking for somewhere really nice to go, but isn’t the normal tourist place?  If so, let me tell you about a nice trip my girlfriend and I took to Malaga, Spain.  This fabulous city located in the Costa del Sol (sun coast) region was a great trip, especially since around that time Stuttgart was doing what Stuttgart and various parts of Germany do.  It was starting to be freezing out. Malaga might not be on your list of places to see in Spain, frankly, it wasn’t top of my list either.  We all know the main places, Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia.  I should probably mention, I’ve been to those three, though Madrid was only like 6 or 7 hours, but I’m still counting it.  Spanish cities have a charm and chill nature that just make you want to see what they have to offer.  I mean they take siestas, what can be better than that?

Getting back at it

Its been a while since I’ve written on my blog here.  As a part of me getting back at it.  I’m going to start and write more.  You might wonder why?  The answer is simple, I like to write, however finding the time to do it is the issue.  That changes now.  From this point forward you’ll be able to find interesting things that are going on with me, while I’ve began a new journey.  That journey being my life here in Germany. That’s right for those of you that don’t know, I live in Germany right now.  It is a lovely place to be, I think everyone should make a trip to Germany or somewhere in Europe at some point in your life. So this is my start.  My return to something I like to do.  I admit this really isn’t anything special, but check back and you’ll see so much more.
