When we arrived in Spain at Malaga Airport you go to the arrivals to get your luggage if you have more than just a carry on case.
After a route march across the car park and down the ramp you get to the station where you get your ticket from the machine.
When you get on the Aeropuerto train it sets off to Fuengirola via the following stations, San Julia, Plaza Mayor, Los Álamos,
La Colina, Torremolinos, Montemar Alto, El Pinillo, Benalmádena Arroyo de la Miel, Torremuelle, Carvajal, Torreblanca,
Los Boliches and then you arrive at Fuengirola.
Since our first trip in 2008 the train from Fuengirola to Malaga has been extended and you would do the above trip in reverse,
when you get to the Aeropuerto station you continue on via Guadalorce, Victoria Kent, Malaga Maria Zambrano the old Malaga
station, which gave you a long walk into the center, then you finally arrive at the new station at Malaga Centro.
July - August 2008
Flying from Manchester, (this time our good friend Steve would be looking after our house and Cats for the ten days we were away).
When you come up to the road at Fuengirola station one of the first views you see is the Fountain on the roundabout.
Across the road from the station is the local bus stop from Mijas, on our many walks to the sea front
we would stop at a very nice Cafe for a drink and this Church is opposite and the fountain is outside.
When we had enjoyed our drink we would take a nice walk along the side streets down to the sea front.
When we went up to Mijas by bus we would walk along past the town hall and behind
the public information office you could get a great view across Mijas and out to sea.
One of the lovely things we liked in Mijas were the Donkeys and it was difficult to pass without taking pictures.
Another nice thing we liked in Mijas were the Horses and again it was difficult to pass without taking pictures.
As you walk along past the many shops and cafes you pass the square used for local events like markets, dancing and fairs.
At various points along the way are stairs that take you to the streets and shops that overlook Mijas, further around the back
of the town you find even more cafes, restaurants, gift shops, banks and more.
At the end of a small square used to take the traffic on a one way system you come to a steep road which takes you up to the
Bullring, more place to eat and drink, the gardens with great fountains and an outside theatre.
