The CISU Massive do Malaga, Spain - October 14th 1998

Nosher's uncle Graham looks after an estate of villas somewhere near Malaga, and so the Old Man suggests getting in touch for a bit of a freebie holiday. And so it was - Nosher and some of the SCC massive, together with some other chums of the day head down to a travel agent in Ipswich to sort out some cheapo flights and pile over to Spain for a bit of late-Autumn sun. Despite it being October, and well out of season, it is nevertheless warm enough to sunbathe on the beach. Although quite a bit of stuff has closed up for the winter, we still manage to find a local bar to frequent, which is all you need, really. During the trip, we hire a sproghauler and drive along the coast to Gibraltar to poke the monkeys and then head up in to the mountains for a change of scenery.
