On 21 June the COVID-19 lockdown in Spain was lifted. On 25 June I flew to Malaga airport.
Being on Schiphol airport in these times felt surreal, to me it was unclear where it was mandatory to wear a face mask and where not. Finally on board the airplane I noticed it was reasonably full; every other seat was taken.
Arriving in Malaga was a different experience this time comparing to all the times I flew in before. First I had to wait for some type of security check, but after 15 minutes of waiting an employee walked to the front of the line, opened a door and all of us could just walk though, simply handing in our filled in health form without a check. The peculiar thing was that all the doors of the toilets were removed for the purpose of not being able to use it.
My Mom waited outside and we drove together to her place. Now it was finally time for a week of relaxation and good weather, and made this our little vacation together! We visited the light installation in Malaga, went swimming and canoeing in a crystal clear lake, had a sunset tour on a catamaran and visited Granada for a day. It really felt good to be out.
The flight home was a lot more quiet, with maybe only 30 people on the plane.
