I fly out to Malaga next week for a quick break in the sun. The Costa del Sol still holds some great memories from me in my repping days; however this is still one of the classics that was a true story of a young couple’s first trip to the coast.
A guy and his girlfriend man were driving their hire car and came across the resort of Benalmadena on the way to their hotel in Marbella. They noted the strange spelling and tried to figure how to pronounce it – BEN ald madena; Ben ald madena etc. They grew more perplexed as they drove into the town.
Since they were hungry, they pulled into a place to get something to eat. At the counter, the man said to the waitress:
"My girlfriend and I can't seem to be able to figure out how to pronounce this place. Will you tell me where we are and say it very slowly so that I can understand."
Quick as a flash the waitress looked at him and said: "Buuurrrgerrr Kiiiinnnng."
Have a great weekend.
