Things I Like About Spain + My Daily Salad

Cafe's everywhere. This one overlooks the beach, post workout.
I like so many things about Spain, specifically, the Costa del Sol where I live. I suppose you could call this a gratitude post in honor of Thanksgiving. What things are you grateful for in the town you live? If you were to move there all over again, what would you notice? Here is what I like about my locality.

Tapas Meal

One kilo of shrimp takes a long time to peel.
A few weeks ago when we stayed in Málaga, we had the opportunity to go to the central market. It was a vibrant, bustling maze of fresh seafood, dried fruit and nuts, fresh baked bread, meats and cheeses, and corner cafés to get lunch or a drink. We loved it. However, navigating the crowds and stalls with two hungry kids proved difficult, so my mother-in-law took them outside while my father-in-law, Justin and I found lunch. We settled on three different bocadillos filled with Ibérico ham, manchego cheese, and chorizo sliced deli meat. To that we added perfectly salted, warm marcona almonds, Málaga raisins dried on the vine, green olives, and sweet marinated garlic. It was a lunch to remember. I vowed to return to the market later in the week and shop for dinner ingredients.

As I mentioned in my previous post, we have stayed at four different apartments over the course of four weeks. It really wasn’t as bad as you might think. But it wasn’t easy, either.

Our Apartment + Salted Fish Salad

We found our dream apartment a few weeks ago. As soon as we walked in and had a quick tour, Justin looked at me and waggled his eyebrows as if to ask, “Should we tell them we want it?” As much as I loved it, the price was at the higher end of our limit, and there were other acceptable apartments for cheaper. But I eagerly nodded and said, “Yes, let’s take it.”
