After four nights in Seville, we hopped on a bus very early in the morning and made the five hour journey to Nerja. Nerja, dubbed 'The Balcony of Europe' by King Alfonso XII, is a small town on the Costa del Sol, and though a bit touristy it was everything we needed. Traveling is so exhausting sometimes, and especially after the late nights in Seville, all I wanted was to lay on a beach for a few days and sleep as much as I wanted. I didn't want to worry about seeing the sights and experiencing the culture of a new place. Nerja was perfect for that.
We stayed at a little bed & breakfast, Hostal Miguel, which is run by the sweetest British couple. We immediately felt at home with them. If any of you ever end up in Nerja, Hostal Miguel is the place to be. Our room had a little patio with a table and chairs, so we could enjoy the view of the hillside and feel the sea breeze through the open windows. We did nothing but rest, wade in the water and eat lots of ice cream; a perfect vacation from traveling.
