Carboneras

This is an old windmill at Carboneras, a Spanish coastal town in the Cabo de Gâta natural park, where we stopped overnight on the way South. There is a nice be-palmed cycle track. We cycled out to the west of

Figueres

No, not me after a night on the town. It’s Salvador Dali, Spanish surrealist artist born here in Figueres in 1904. We moved on to spend the night in L’Estartit, in the Bay of Roses.

Easter in Spain

We had a sunny final week at Los Alcázares; it got a little busier as a few Spanish pitched up for the Easter holidays. We spotted these Andalusians trotting through the shallows on the way to coffee one morning (us,

Christopher’s Pitch

Córdoba

We took the bus from La Campiña to Cordoba (€4 each, 45 minutes) while Rick very kindly looked after the Kray twins. Time was limited so we took a taxi from the bus station to the Calahorrra tower, which lies

The Olive Harvest

We have discovered the best campsite in Spain…it is La Campiña, a smallish site tucked away in the Andalucian olive groves about 20 miles south of Córdoba. The name La Campiña translates as a region of rolling hills and fertile

For Whom the Bell Tolls

Following in the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway, Orson Welles, Tennyson and a few other tourists, we have just spent four days in Ronda…an amazing town perched on top of sheer cliffs, deep in Andalucia. We stayed at Camping El Sur,
