Marbella was my first brush with Spain. I needed sunshine, was prepping for my grad school finals, and wanted a weekend getaway from London. I booked a flight on EasyJet to head to Marbella with my flatmate.
We spent a weekend doing exactly what one should do whilst in Marbella: soaking up sunshine, practicing our Spanish, eating avocados and shrimp (the unofficial dish of the area) and drinking sangria. Pure bliss.
