Then 18 months into the destruction of Covid we decided to leave the UK sell up two cars two houses and away we went on a long arduous journey. I feel our journey is still in the beginning. At the in moment Benalmadena Pueblo. Malaga and 18 months we are learning finding our way.  The sun never lets you down … Result! ☀️🌸
