Spain 2017 - 2018 India Bermuda Tasmania Singapore
I arrived  in Spain at the end of September 2017 and remained until mid March 2018 (with a two week break in UK for Christmas with my family).
Having   been   very   satisfied   with   the   Malaga   apartment   I   stayed   in   last year,   I   decided   to   return   to   the   same   one   again   for   the   autumn   of   2017. Malaga   is   a   good   base   for   exploring   many Andalusia   destinations   and   the apartment   is   very   conveniently   centrally   located   to   the   Old   Town.   Malaga is   a   perfect   destination.   During   January,   February   and   March   I   visited several   locations   on   my   travels   from   the   UK   through   France   to   Spain.For the bulk of the winter I based myself in Torremolinos on the Costa Del Sol.
