Feb 8, 2020 - WOW Location

Day 28 - Sat 8th Feb I found us a WOW spot today. We moved on from Murcia past Alicante & Benidorm to a little parking spot on top of a very promontory with thousand foot drops on either side. Viv wouldn’t even open her eyes at first she was so scared but I persuaded her that it was safe & she eventually relaxed. We had quit our crowded car park at Murcia after filling up our fresh water tank & carried on down from the mountains towards the coast. We did stop to top up the diesel at one garage at €1.12/ltr but as I started to pump I spotted...

Feb 8, 2016 - Along the coast to Cap de Sant Antoni

The one problem about the campground near Alicante was it was a long way from any of the areas we wanted to explore so we were having long days out and also travelling a lot of miles. Today we had identified a walk just north of the resort town of Calp. We stopped in Calp and discovered a walk up a prominent rock (326m high) called the Penyal s’Ifac with good views along the coast (over developed!) We then took the coastal road and found a charming small resort where we stopped and had a wander. By now it was far too late to do the walk...

Nov 29, 2011 - Paella & Sangria

They say the rain falls mainly on the plain in Spain. THEY ARE WRONG. It rains everywhere in Spain. The bad weather that followed us from Italy across the south of France has found us in Spain :o( We camped in the heart of the town of Roses, 2 minutes from the beach. One afternoon Paul had gone for a stroll around the camp, he came rushing back saying he had to get his boules as he had been asked to make up the numbers as a group of French men were playing the famous French game (Pétanque) at the back of the camp, he was so excited!! As...

Jul 10, 2007 - Jávea

Having said I was going to get back to Denia today I gave it a miss after getting stuck behind gypsies for nearly an hour! Yes, gypsies, clip-clopping down the road in their horse-drawn caravans, all 12 or 13 of them!! The roads are so narrow and windy that there are very few overtaking opportunities, so I took the opportunity to read up on Jávea while also working on my left calf muscle as I rode the clutch! Jávea is the Spain I've been looking for!!! I just went from one marked tourist spot to the next, but other than a couple of other...

Jul 9, 2007 - Jávea

Felt like a rest after the course so headed down south to Jávea. Spent an enjoyable month entertaining my mum, my pal Amanda, Paul from Australia and some pals from Barcelona; Verónica, Nadrés, Olga and Ramón. The highlight ? When I decided to have a barbecue. I thought it couldn't fail. The presence of an Australian (who are always giving it large about how good they are at everything) should have made things foolproof.... To spare some blushes Mick and David (two pommies) came provided some assistance!!! Good barbie though, thanks to...
