Hola! Im Isobel and i'm currently in BIFE studying Graphic Design in year 2. Im so excited to be in Malaga for the second time participating in the Erasmus+ Program. I feel so grateful to be picked again and to get away from rainy Ireland! I really wanted to participate a second time round as I want more work experience within the Graphic Design industry and Im excited to make loads of new memories!
We arrived to Malaga on Friday morning and went straight to the accommodation, I was really chuffed with the accommodation it’s really cosy and spacious. We have our own gym, cinema and games room and roof top with nice views! We were very tired Friday but still managed to go out for dinner. I was really excited to be back in Malaga for the second time, its like i never left!
On Thursday we went to the flamenco show, it was really good craic! It was different than the one I went to in May. It was definitely worth going a second time. We got a free drink and cheese and crackers it was lovely! The dancers and the singers were really talented it was a great experience.
After the show we went for dinner to No Piqui with Sarah. I really recommend going to this restaurant its really central and the food is amazing!
In the second week of Erasmus I spent going to work and enjoying the amazing weather at the beach. I didn't go on the day trips because I went last time and wanted to catch up on sleep as it can be quite tiring going to work everyday, but i really recommend going to Granada and Nerja as it was amazing last time.
The malagueta is probably the go to beach to go to as its local and walking distance to everything. Its near supermarkets and food places and has a good walk way if you want to take a stroll by the beach.
To go to eat my go to places are 3 amigos by the port, it has indian, greek, italian and tapas so its a great place to go as a group ! also ciao italian is so nice and affordable, pizzamore for the best pizza ever also really cheap and for drinks I really recommend Morriseys Irish pub it has a great atmosphere at night and also really affordable,
The last few days I spent enjoying the nice weather and shopping around to bring things home to Ireland.
We went for dinner with Richard as a group for the final night in 3 amigos by the port which was lovely.
Im home now and happy to see my friends and family but sad to not be in the nice weather and not to be around nice people everyday! It was a great experience and i recommend applying , 3 weeks goes by really quick and you’ll be sad to be home and back to college !
Hasta luego Málaga xxx
