Getting there is all part of the adventure!
We took an overnight flight direct from Las Vegas, Nevada to a layover in Düsseldorf, Germany
On the long flight to Düsseldorf,
we were seated in the middle row without a window view, so no photos taken.
On the flight to Málaga, we were happy to see Europe from the air in daylight.
Wall size photo mural of Málaga Spain
Famous as the birth place of Pablo Picasso,
Málaga has a long history as a major port during the Islamic era of the region.
Now a capitol city of the province by the same name,
Málaga is located deep within the southernmost autonomous community in Spain, Andalucía.
The rolling countryside of Andalucía marks the strategic gateway to the northern Mediterranean.
