Highs & Lows

Hiking a river near Nerja and playing 3v3 basketball tournament in Rincon.

Didn't have a car to our disposal for the whole trip.

Itinerary Overview

Two friends and I arrived to Malaga airport at 3am local time after a 4 hour flight, there we took a cap to Rincon de la Victoria, a small town approximately 20 minutes from the centrum of Malaga. I decided to join this trip 2 days before the flight left so it was really spontaneous. Although it was late at night the temperature was extremely pleasant and the sky full of stars. We stayed at the house that belonged to the parents of one of my friends, only 50 meters from the beach.

The ten days that we spent in the outskirts of Malaga consisted of playing a lot of basketball, hiking, exploring, tanning and swimming in the ocean.
