Still have not managed to confirm nor deny whether or not I will be coming solo or with another, as such I have put down a reservation on the hotel which I can amend until the end of august just to play it safe smile
Fingers crossed everything works out and we can both turn up, have got this at "Ms Maestranza Hotel"

Looking at the flights etc though, they're damn costly for this specific weekend... nearly double the other EPP costs so far, it has me a little concerned I just hope I can find a good deal/afford it.

I am sorry to hear that flights are so expensive, UKIkarus! Malaga is usually cheap. I do not know of anything going on that weekend. I hope your friend can come as well.

We couldn't get in at the MS Maestranza, we're a bit down the road.
Our flights were a bit more expensive than for other EPP locations but that could also be because of the timing of the booking - sometimes you get lucky. In any event it isn't outrageous, and the hotel is cheaper than any we've had for an EPP, and looks just as nice too, so .... luck of the draw I guess.

UkIkarus, I really hope you find a better deal!

Sinophilia - are you and R going to join us? That would be great!

I haven't booked yet (have to get my +1 to sign off on the expense ;)), but we'll almost certainly be there, too.

My +1 says it's OK, so well be there :P (and if he hadn't, I'd have come alone anyway wink ).

Did I miss anyone? I am starting to think about the weekend and what to would be fun to do. Is everyone arriving on Friday? My ideas so far as as follows.
Friday evening we tour the historical district, Alcazabar, and Gilbrafaro. Then we do Tapas and dinner in a restaurant in old town. On Saturday we meet about 11:00 at my place and play piano, have some tapas and drinks. I was thinking about doing lunch on the beach somewhere around 3:00. Afterward we can play more piano if everyone wants to. Saturday evening we have a couple of options. We can go to Muelle Uno to a restaurant and take in the usual musical events there. Often there are bands or Flamenco dancing on Saturday night. Gary has another possibility, but we have to see if we can get permission to do it. I will keep you posted on that. At the end of the evening we can come back up to my apartment for the views over the city, castle, and Med. Of course you can always play more! Sunday, depending on when everyone is leaving, we can also get together if you like.

Some interesting things to do in Malaga for longer stays: The Hop on - Hop off bus gives a really good tour of the city. Interesting places to visit include the Picasso Museum, The interactive Music Museum. the Cathedral, Cervantes theater, etc. I can give you more info if you want. As we get closer to the date I will have an idea of what activities are going on. It seems there is always some kind of festival.

So let me know how the plan sounds to you, and if you have any suggestions of what you would like to do!

We are going to travel by car and we should arrive in Malaga on Saturday before lunch time. We go straight to your house.

I think we are going to leave Malaga only on Monday (something to confirm later) so we are free on Sunday all day. Any plan is good for us. thumb

I'm still uncertain when I'll be flying in at the moment as I haven't sorted the tickets, the reservation for the Hotel MS Maestranza I managed to put a deposit on is for Friday, however looking at the flights it would be MUCH cheaper to fly out Thursday.
In fact, it is so much cheaper that if my +1 does come, between us we could pay for the extra night from the savings on the flights alone.

As such I have asked on the site if the hotel has availability on the Thursday too with a view to possibly stretching it that extra day, will keep you posted never the less.

We arrive Friday morning and leave Sunday around 3.. For planning purposes I suppose we're available til about 1pm.

SwissMs your ideas sound great.

We definitely want to see those historical sites!

For Saturday evening the restaurant sounds lovely but I am also curious to see if Gary's plan works out. His mind works in such creative ways!

We're very happy to go with the flow, and delighted that so many old friends will be sharing the weekend! We're looking forward to making some new friends too!

If my +1 can get Monday off, we'll be flying in on Friday and leaving on Monday. It would save us a bundle on the plain tickets. But it's not confirmed yet; we're waiting on his boss to approve or deny ...
