Started our trip with an overnight train from Vienna to Milan. Here is the Attache in our tiny train cabin.
Arriving in Milan train station on Oct 17th well rested.
Met my parents in Savona, Italy and boarded the ship - Costa Magica. My parents had a balcony cabin. The Attache and I settled for an interior cabin with no windows.
Leaving Savona, Italy.
At dinner on the ship.
Mom and the Attache in the ship casino.
The Attache played 5 Euros on the slots and won 60! Then she smartly quit playing. That's my girl!
Empty glass. Sleeping with the mouth open. That's me.
First port-of-call: Malaga, Spain.
We hiked up to Gibralfaro Castle and had a view of Malaga. The stadium to the left is for bull fighting.

Malaga, Spain. This was pretty incredible. They are doing a construction project of an entire city block, only keeping the building walls and removing everything else: no roof, no inside. They use the framing to hold the walls up.
Malaga, Spain. Sherry bar.
Marrakesh, Morocco. This was the extent of our photo-stop of the Mosque.
Marrakesh, Morocco. Bahia Palace. Total crap.
Marrakesh, Morocco. I'd give you a buck to sniff this guys feet.
Marrakesh, Morocco. Those are goat heads.
Marrakesh, Morocco. We got jammed into this little "berberian pharmacy" to learn about traditional Moroccan cures. Okay, it was interesting for about 5 minutes but we were stuck in here for an hour while the guy tried to sell us ever single thing he had. Can you see the boredom on the people?
Marrakesh, Morocco. Had the best meal on the entire cruise at this restaurant.
