Farewell Friends – For Now!

Joerg, Micha, Moni, Anja, Jackie and Bill
The great thing about travelling is meeting people and we have met some deevine people on our travels. The bad thing about travelling is having to say Goodbye and moving on to different horizons. HOWEVER, we know where you live and we will hunt you down!

Happy Valentine's Day

Sunrise in Monte Gordo
My German husband had never even heard of such “a ridiculous” thing before I stood sobbing waiting for my card and present. I, of course, had a secret card for him and a Valentine's Day Introduction Course planned with the help of an elderly neighbour...

The Guadiana River

Guadiana River
The Guadiana River separates Extremadura and Andalucia (Spain) from Alentejo and Algarve (Portugal) and is a favourite area of ours. We stay on the Portuguese side right on the river banks and we go for hikes in the mountains and drinks in the local bar – what could be better?

Can one ever have enough sunset photos?

Sunset in Portugal
Well, let's find out!

Sunset Boys

Joerg and Micha
Does this beautiful photograph need any explanations? It was our first day in Portugal with our friends Anja, Micha and Angela (no not, Ms Merkel!) and the sky was magnificent.

Torre del Mar, Andalusia, Spain

Torre del Mar
Torre is another firm favorite of ours on the Spanish coast. They have, however, fallen somewhat into our bad books as they no longer allow camper vans to park overnight in EMPTY car parks. Very silly is all I have to say – I will spend my Pesetas elsewhere then thank you very much.

La Redondela, Huelva, Spain

La Redondela
I have stopped greeting Spanish men on my walks as they seem to think I'm trying to pick them up! But really, I'm only trying to pick up the really good looking ones... No, I know only greet couples, but that can also be dodgy...

The View from The Loo

The view from our toilet...
Why yes, I do actually know how to lower the tone... Actually, this was The Husbands idea as he seems to think that it's sheer luxury to go in places like this (and no that is not a grammatical error!)

The view from our kitchen
Though I do think the kitchen is nicer...

Mojacar

Our spot in Mojacar
We've been to Mojacar before and I did blog about it last year (you remember of course), but we like it so much we went back again this year. And we love it as much again this year. You can see Alex, our camper van, in the foreground - he's named after Alexander the Great, a name chosen by our wonderful friend Roger because of his enormous size – the van not Roger you silly person!

Peñíscola, Spain

Beautiful Peniscola by night
This is nothing dirty, just the name of a town in Spain. Gabi, who we met in Portugal last year, told me that “cola” means tail in Spanish. I had to visit a town called double tail … It turns out to be absolutely beautiful (quieten down back there) and well worth visiting. Enough already!
