Spain 2018 - 2019 India Bermuda Tasmania Singapore
I arrived  in Spain at the end of September 2018 and remained until mid April 2019 (with a two week break in UK for Christmas and New Year with my family).  I finally departed on a Brittany Ferries car ferry from Bilbao to Portsmouth on 24th April.
Having   been   very   satisfied   with   the   Malaga   apartment   I   rented   in   2016, 2017   and   2018,   I   have   booked   it   again   for   the   autumn   of   2019.   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,   March   (2017)   and   April   (2018)   I visited   several   locations   on   my   travels   in   my   car   from   the   UK   through France   to   Spain.   For   the   bulk   of   the   winters   of   2018   and   2019   I   based myself in Torremolinos on the Costa Del Sol.
