The great affair is to move... (Malaga, Spain)

For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. 
 I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.
Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes (1878)

Sharing with you some photos from Malaga... when some friends and I planned on just checking the street from our window view but ended up exploring the city through whichever route was more interesting.

My semi infatuation over aisles was somewhat gratified in this place. So many narrow corridors leading to different places... quaint cafes, fountains, traditional residences / lodges, the cathedral, souvenir shops, designer boutiques, motorcycle strips, varieties of restaurants, bars, rugged areas, half naked men of all ages (don't know why, how...), gardens, the beach [etc.]! I should show you more photos next time...

I tend to have this constant itch to keep going somewhere, to adjust into the new... And when I'm too comfortable somewhere for too long, as if I must move on to some exciting unfamiliar. <3

Revived these after waking up to a Whatsapp message from a Malaysian number (instantly knew it was Shan), asking for photos from the Malaga trip...

Apparently, Magnum was already "happening" years ago. I've friends who love this ice cream... Some of them absolutely rave about this on and on, some of them are paid. :p Me, not much of a fan... but during this time, this was simply the best --almost like a mirage in the middle of the desert, as we walked for hours (without food / water) under Malaga heat. 

Plus, we didn't bring cash this day (why, why not), but had just enough for the 4 euros we incidentally had as loose coins in the pocket. What a thrill!

(in Malaga, 6th largest city in Spain)
There was this crazy Asian girl who suddenly got up in the middle of a casual [laying on the sand, resting under palm trees] moment with friends... and decided to do cartwheels. HAHA
