I am beyond ecstatic about this holiday!! It took me over a month to actually arrange it as we will be flying with our little Boston Terrier puppy, Oscar. For those of you flying to/from the UK with pets you know what a nightmare it is.. BUT I finally figured out the route, and the flights, AND found a place via Airbnb that accepts pets!! We’re off in September for a lovely 2 weeks of pure relaxation! I wanted to go as low down in Spain as possible, without being super far away from the airport because travelling with pets can be a bit of a tricky thing. So islands sadly for us were a no no. I found this studio at Playamar beach in Torremolinos, Malaga, Spain and it was just so perfect. Plus the host was super nice with all my questions and let us take Oscar with us, so for me the hunt was finally over. I finalised the overnight ferry trip with cabins from Harwich to Hook of Holland via Stenaline. Then bought the flights from Iberia from Amsterdam to Malaga direct and phoned up to reserve the spots for Oscar. And have now as well booked a visit to the vet to make sure all his papers are in order to avoid that horrendosity that was the trip through Holland last time
I just can’t believe I’ve actually managed all this!! Really, I can’t. At points it just felt like it was impossible to get to Spain and have a nice holiday with our little boy. Or have a holiday anywhere, besides back at home and in the UK, with our little dog. And I actually managed all of it without breaking the bank! This is all thanks to Airbnb and Alain, our host. This will be my first time using it, so expect a follow up review after the holiday 🙂 The studio we will be staying at has all the amenities that we required (biggest of which was pet friendly) and is a step away from the beach. It even has a pool! Woohoo! I’m so excited I just can’t put it all into words. This holiday is absolutely a neccessity for both my partner and I and I just know I’m going to love staying in Malaga ❤ Less than 4 weeks to go now! AAAHHHHH JUST CAN’T WAIT!!!
P.s. For any of you thinking of travelling to Spain from the UK with your pet don’t hesitate to ask me for the best routes. Believe me, I struggled and did way too much research as usual.
