We spent a couple of weeks in Spain, the little foxes are back with amazing tans and impressive new talents in the swimming pool. I've a pile of washing, cleaning and unpacking and two slightly sulky dogs to contend with. And the school clothes to go through, check and label, autumn term classes to reorganise and pay for. Last of the summer holiday play-dates to arrange and ferry the little foxes to. Oh and a Pirate Party to finish for little Miller... more on that soon.
While in Spain we stayed in a lovely little hostal in Nerja. And one of the great things about this part of Andalucia is that as the height of the summer tourist season winds down it is still a great place to visit. Jane and Ian at Hostel Miguel in Nerja were wonderful hosts and we can't recommend their friendly, simple, clean hostal enough.
We loved visiting the caves and the beautiful surrounding pueblos blancos like Frigiliana (Thanks for the tip Sarah!) The kids had a wonderful time and were "gracias"-ing with gusto by the end of the two weeks. I've not been to Spain much before but this was a great family holidays. Probably because it was so easy, for me that is another of Spain's big attraction.
