We decided to have another week on the site at Playa Muchavista and visited again the Christmas displays in the library in El Campello. Then in the evening we headed into Alicante on the tram. The nativity this year is on the front and a 30 ft Joseph and even the baby Jesus was 6ft long. The weather was not too bad and I even had a last swim in the sea. We had long walks along the front and had a final look round before heading north up to France. Lateral flow in France an
We headed back to the coast and a small rustic campsite at La Garrofa. We where nearly on the beach. We had a couple of days sat on the beach in the sun. I had a swim in the sea each day but on the second day I managed to catch a jelly fish on my arm. We had a bus trip to Almería for the day and had a look round the city and its cathedral. We had a look at the outside of the castle. We headed from here to Ikea at Murcia for an overnight stop and meat balls.
We had a free stop 200m from the sea in a park at Benalmádena. Some nice flat walks along the front. At first we didn’t like the area, “English breakfast” territory, but putting that aside we have enjoyed our time with nice parks, walks along the beaches etc. Friday was particularly busy with a visit to Malaga which just happened to be Christmas light switch on night and Black Friday! Málaga has a nice mix of old and new, we were quite impressed and will return!
We drove up into the mountains and to Ronda. Winter coats, long trousers & jumpers on, and off we go on another walking session!! We hit the “new” town first, so vibrant with shops we recognise and some we don’t plus lots of nic-nac shops, very touristy! Then down to the historic centre. To have a look at the views and the new bridge. The New Bridge is the most emblematic and beautiful monument of the city of Ronda in Malaga, built between 1751 and 1793. It staddles the Tajo
Conil de la Frontera is one of the White Towns of Andalusia in the province of Cadiz (region of Andalusia), located on the Atlantic coast in the southern part of Spain, with around 22,000 inhabitants. We arrived at the camp site Camping La Rosaleda to stop for 10 days. To start with the weather was really good but towards the end got really windy. We cycled north one day to the beach in front of the 5 * hotel at Playa La Loma. We saw some wonderful sunsets.
Rota a town to the north of Cádiz on the bay of Cádiz. It is home to the Spanish Navy AV8 B+ fleet (Harrier). I managed to get only one photograph but could hear hovering and flypast also night flying. We have a walk down the beach into the town, they seem to be putting in a new main drain into the sea. We did stop at a bar for cola and chips a massive plate arrived. The parking was busy with lots of motorhomes on 2 car parks right next to the great Atlantic sandy beach.
We first visited Gaudix for the night and had a look at the cave houses again. It was a long and winding road and must admit the White villages blurred at times, but, we enjoyed the different scenery and the cold temperatures!! After Juviles we travelled to the top of a “cul de sac”and stayed at Trevelez, the highest village in Spain at 1,476m above sea level. Sunday was a very strenuous day to say the least with a 400m hike up into the Sierra Nevada park , including Jean
We headed north west from the coast via Vélez Rubio and an overnight stop across to Cazorla. We came back for the olive oil. Cazorla stands at 840m above sea level, it was late afternoon by the time we arrived and raining slightly. We joined another 5 vans at the free aire high above the town, the trees still have leaves on so no view of the valley this time! We waited until after siesta time and the rain had stopped before visiting this familiar town. Sadly, quite unusua
Well after a 3 hr drive south we arrived at the camper stop in Muchaista that we came last time for 6 weeks. This time sadly due to the B word it will only be just over 3 weeks. The weather is much warmer up to 29 C and only 19 C at night. We have met up with the church family and been on a beach picnic. We've had a week now swimming in the sea and walking on the front so we decided to have a day in Alicante. We went in on the tram still only €0.87 each way. Had a nice
We first visited this area in 2019 on the way south. We stopped this time at a camp site some 500m from the last. We had a couple of days on the beach and swims in the sea. We also went on the old railway line to Benicàssim along the Vía Verde del Mar having lunch on the beach before riding back. We had some nice German neighbours round us on the site and a swimming pool on site. Jean met an ex colleague from her time in Nantwich and he and his wife came to see us at the V
Alcañiz is a town and municipality of Teruel province in the autonomous community of Aragon, Spain. The town is located on the banks of the river Guadalope. We stopped in the town at a motorhome parking. Nice quiet night after a day driving in the rain. In the morning we had time to walk in the town and up to the Castillo de los Calatravos is a castle located in Alcañiz ( Teruel ), in Aragon , Spain , which belonged to the Order of Calatrava . This military order had an impo
