New friends and good pastries // Marbella, Spain
Meghan and Julia! Julia and I met in a hostel in Malaga when I walked in on her Yoga session in our shared 2 bunk room. We started chatting and swapped Spain stories and got to know each other a bit. We were both headed here, to Marbella next but didn’t know if our paths would cross schedule/place-wise. I gave her my card with my contact info on it and we parted ways. Meghan and I met and checked into our place in Marbella, and the second (or third? I’m all a jumble) day guess who I stumbled into in the hallway. Julia was actually coming over to our room to ask if we knew the country code for the US because she was trying to call my cell phone (I had forgotten my US number was on the card, not my Spain number!). She had the room right next to ours! We went out for dinner one night, and the next morning got coffee together. She introduced Meghan and I to the Napolitana, the most amazing chocolate-filled pastry. I had tried it before but didn’t know what it was called, and it wasn’t fresh from the bakery like the ones we found in Marbella. Oh-so-good.
Cafe con leche. Espresso with milk. My go-to beverage.
Dinner with Julia :)
Beautiful beach, but Jellyfish infested waters :(
