1 – The beach – I mean that one is obvious. Check out the view from my living room! I have spent every afternoon running on the beach.

It’s paradise here.

2 – El Ultimo Mono – This is my favorite coffee shop in town. It’s a great place to study or catch up with friends. They play oldies music and also make some of the best fruit smoothies; You can’t top that!

3 – The shops in the center – They have some great things and there are always amazing sales.

4 – The Fruterias – These stands literally have the best fruit I have ever tasted and they are super inexpensive. I have been eating fruit for days because I can’t stay away from them!

5 – The Malaga Cathedral – Located in the heart of the city center, you can’t help but fall in love with this gorgeous cathedral. It’s a great place to spend your Sunday morning with the locals.

6 – Gibralfaro Parador – The hike to the top of the mountain only takes about 15 minutes and the view is so worth it! My host family and I walk here every Sunday together; It’s my favorite part of the week.

7 – My classroom – I am in the Spanish Intensive Program so my classes are really small. There are only 5 of us. I love it though because I feel like I have my own personal tutor when I go to class. I have learned so much already and it’s only been a week and a half!
