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 ...

Sorry SwissMS, we will not join you after all. It's a long flight for a short 2/3-day trip - and we can't be away from home for more than that during the summer. I will be waiting for your photos and videos!

Sorry that you won't be joining us sinophilia! We will do lots of photos and videos to share.

I am working on ideas for the weekend activities. We will probably have a clearer ideas of what we can do by mid-June.

Hi all!

I am really sorry for my long absence, but I’ll join this party since I live pretty near Málaga.


My best wishes to you all. This forum is still in my mind wink.

The lovely thing about romance languages is that you can figure out what is being said most of the time, even without google smile

The last few times we have been in Spain we've managed with English and Italian - but picking up a bit of Spanish would be fun --- Olà!

So, just to confirm, I have managed to get the hotel booking extended from Thursday to Monday and as such will be arriving on the Thursday.
I don't yet know what time as I have yet to confirm the flights (yes I'm doing it all backwards but put a deposit on so I didn't miss out on the opportunity and it's definitely cheaper to fly out that day vs friday!) so now I need to figure out the best means of getting to the airport and the best times on the day.

It's also kind of resting on whether or not my +1 will come with me, which is still as of this moment up in the clouds frown

Wow, we would have loved to join you, just not in the budget this year.

We will be there in spirit, and expecting lots of pictures!

Best,
Frank & Kathy

UKIkarus- We should be able to meet you at the airport on Thursday. I have my fingers crossed that your +1 can join us!

joe80 - let us know when you decide on dates to visit. Maybe we can still get together for some piano!

Frank - I wish you could join us. It would be great to see you and Kathy again. If you decide to visit Spain at another time you are always welcome!
