Britons Return to Malaga

August 28, 2009 at 09:48 (fuengirola, News) (, , , , )

BRITONS are now returning to the Costa del Sol after numbers fell dramatically in the first quarter of 2009, a study has revealed.

Figures from AENA Spanish airports confirmed that 15.6 per cent fewer British passengers arrived at Malaga during the first three months of this year compared to the same period of 2008.

However, a revival since then has seen the drop cut to 9.5 per cent for the half year.

Overall, 1,068,000 Britons flew to Malaga between January and the end of June.

Meanwhile, German numbers also recovered from a 20.59 per cent first quarter drop to a half year reduction of 9.9 per cent.

British and German passengers have accounted for 70 per cent of all arrivals so far this year.

Enjoy the beach

August 20, 2009 at 19:39 (fuengirola) (, , , , )

There used to be a time when I thought myself odd not to enjoy the beach in summertime. Everybody else did, and those who claimed not to, I realised, had the kind of bodies swimsuits were not designed for. Although I now fit into this category, it is with no sense of shame that I occasionally parade my withering body along the sand. It is the boredom of lying practically naked on a towel and allowing my skin to be toasted by the sun that curtails my enjoyment of the beach.

Leave your brain on the plane

August 19, 2009 at 16:58 (fuengirola) (, , , )

I must admit, I never thought I would say it, but GODDAMN tourists are stupid. First we have the traditional street walkers. Don’t get excited I’m not talking about prostitutes, but those fucking idiots who seem to think that because they are on holiday in a holiday resort, walking down the middle of the street is acceptable and all local drivers have got cat like reflexes and can dodge pedestrians coming from the left, right and above at the same time! We can’t! Get of the fucking road or don’t complain if you get clipped by the occasional side mirror (funny seeing them jump).
