Hola from Espaņa with photos
« on: October 10, 2017, 12:40:42 AM »
Hi PH folks,

Left Oakland for Spain the other day so just saying hola... O0




Some of these travelers pack a lot:



We only need a carry-on and a backpack for the three of us but then again we've always been light packers and light on our feet when we travel:



Because it's an international flight, we couldn't use our TSA "Pre-Check" but because we have a baby, we were still allow to go through that speedy line, and thank goodness...loo ked behind the Pre-Check line and no one behind us but the regular lines next to us are full of people waiting to get screened ;D:



Flight on schedule:



The Mediterranean Sea coastline in Spain:



Walking through BCN's terminal:



Since we had some time to kill, we checked out BCN's duty free area:











These carts are free of charge at the Barcelona airport, nice! (not that we need it):



Current currency exchange rate:



Our international multi-wall outlet adapter is as useful as ever..:






More photos later as I'm enjoying my vacation at the moment..;D

Yes sir, love to travel and see the world and exploring new things and we gotta live life while we can....  O0

The baby is traveling just fine thus far. She's already flown a few times. We just make sure she using her pacifier when the plan takes off and bring some pre-measured powder baby formula in her bottles and it's all good as we can get hot water to mix it up anywhere i.e., Starbucks, airport terminals, restaurants, stores, etc.

She travels well and sleep well thus far so we are thankful for that.. 8)

Alrighty, update time.... ;D

welcome to Malaga, Spain...we love coastal resort towns so this one is a good one:






check into our room first:








the beach and the Mediterrienean coastline is nice but not as nice as the pacific ocean...as ocean >sea>lake IMO on average and oh, they have quiet a few wild parrots there (nice to see):














time to eat, love how they grill these fish:












time to eat and compared these coastal food to the ones at home:










unlike in america, more restaurants charge for bread here and this one is one:




wife wants to do the feet clean by fish thing (Fish Spa) so we stopped by for it:






the town's center area:
















tried these freshly roasted nuts from a street vendor and it tasted pretty good:






More updates to come in the coming days... O0
