On Friday 18 October at 3.30am 38 students from Years 8, 10, 11 and 4 teachers set off to Malaga. We arrived at Benalmadena in the morning and were welcomed with some glorious sunshine. Once at the hotel we went for a stroll along the beach and then had lunch. In the afternoon we had some Spanish lessons in a local school and in the evening we got our dancing shoes on to learn some flamenco. Olé!
The next day we were up early to get the 2 hour coach journey to Granada. There we walked around the narrow and steep streets of the Albaycin before having lunch in the city centre. After lunch we visited the impressive and beautiful palace The Alhambra. There we were able to take in the beautiful Moorish architecture and gardens.
On the Sunday we had a guided tour of the Nerja caves where we learnt all about how the caves were found and learnt some interesting facts about the prehistoric man. We then had lunch in Nerja town centre and then back to the hotel for some pool time at the hotel.
On the last day we went back to the school to learn how to make paella which was delicious. Then we embarked on the final leg of the trip to Malaga town centre where we went to visit the Picasso museum and they had some free time to buy souvenirs before getting the flight back that evening.
