May 1, 2012 - The over 30's swimming club

I would like to add a comment regarding the ''glamour'' picture of me sliding gracefully into the swimming pool - or was I slowly inching my way out, yes definitely coming out anyone who knows me will know the third step down is far enough as I don't allow anything to go above the knee and that includes water. My brand new, very stiff swimsuit from M&S contains a support bra, which believe it or not is two inches thick. This adds up to a circumference of eight inches, which leaves me a 32b Sue and not 48f. This just marginally gets me into...

Apr 23, 2012 - Sun, sea and Sangria

So, we have been here for 4 days and are loving the sunshine, beach culture and people watching. We are finding life really difficult at the moment with horrendous decisions to be made like which bar to have our lunchtime beer/sangria or which bay to stroll for our daily exercise. Really delighted with Salou and our campsite, Could stay here all summer............

Apr 21, 2012 - Salou

Arrived in Salou yesterday after a dash across Spain in our constant search for Phoebe. After a night in a cheap pension we have acquired a bungalow type letting on a campsite near the town centre and will be chilling out for a week, hopefully, in the sun. Very sad to leave San Sebastian it is such a lovely city although not too big and lots to see and do, particularly if you have nice weather. The journey over the pyrenees was something else with cloud swirling over the tops of the mountains. Gorilla's in the mist sprang to mind as we...

Jun 17, 2009 - Salou-on the beach

Salou (promounced Sah-low) is a town dedicated to sun worshipping tourists. The predominant language spoken here by visitors is English with a UK accent. The resorts are mostly open only April to end of October, with a few remaining open year round. Winter temperatures drop to 10-15C during the day and rarely lower than 5C at night. June is typically cool in the low 20s with July and August hitting 30C That said, there is always a cool breeze in the evening so it's not intolerable. We have been lucky and the temperatures have been in the...

May 8, 2006 - Monteserrat, Montblanc.

Out of Barcelona to Montserrat - a monastery at the top of a mountain. The Monastery wasn't very interesting, but we went for a long walk through the mountains which was spectacular. The range is filled with unusual shapes of rocks and meant that we finally used our walking boots (we were starting to think they were taking up too much room in the van for nothing). Montblanc and another hideous campground, but the town was rather lovely, with a medieval centre, a lovely church. Just down the road, Poblet, has another Monastery, the walls of...

May 1, 2006 - La Mancha and Aragon regions

We both seem to be happiest in regions the guidebooks describe as "... largely unsung and undervisited"! This is certainly true with La Mancha and Aragon. Anyone who has read Man of La Mancha by Cervantes has an impression of what this region of Spain would be like: sienna plains, windmills and medieval castles. As the guide books states, "Its empty beauty and wide horizons are one of the classic images of Spain". What we did not envision were the scenic mountain ranges and dramatic gorges that reminded us very much of Arizona. The perfect...
