You don’t need to pack everything as many basic items are easily found in shops in Marbella.  Things like a new sunhat are widely available locally and there is always a pharmacy/chemist open 24-hours nearby. Besides, once you are out and about, there is nothing better than an afternoon stroll to window shop! “I'm glad I left space in my
