One thing you can always rely on when travelling in motorhomes is meeting and enjoying lovely people’s company, this can of course be as much locals as well as fellow motorhomers. This trip, for the usual boring reason, has been slightly different. Not so many people, a reluctance by everyone to meet and greet, with of course the huge barriers of not being able to touch, kiss, … [Read more...] about Pancake Olympics
Not generally two words uttered together, in my case. I have been known, or accused of giving numerous people food poisoning at Christmas once. In fact, in the end the number run into double figures and some hadn’t even been in attendance at my Christmas soiree! Nibbles in my world generally run to a packet of stale crisps, so Karen and kitchen, or more appropriately cooking … [Read more...] about Karen’s Kitchen
And it certainly was with me and two policemen on Tuesday. I would say my criminal past flashed before my eyes as David and I cycled into Barbate to do our weekly shop. We were heading to Conil, which as we have said in earlier posts is easier, market wise and on a bike. However, due to high 100 numbers, Conil was closed and we were advised by Filippo, our morning coffee stop … [Read more...] about Lost in Translation.
For one of this band of two this week, and it has meant that we have seen friends of old and more lately new ones for the week, and as is the case still in Spain, we have been able to eat and drink out. It’s also been a big celebration here in Spain itself, as Wednesday was Three Kings Day. The Feast of Epiphany is traditionally Spain’s main festive holiday, when children … [Read more...] about It’s a Celebration!
Driving Home for Christmas was our last blog, before we did indeed head home for this celebration. We would at this point like to say that it all went smoothly, but given that we are now writing a blog in Spain sat on our respective sofa’s in Buster, then you will have worked out that it never actually went quite as we expected, but to be fair what did over those few days … [Read more...] about Reasons to be Tierful 1,2,3….4…..
Not us for sure, but here in the lovely area of Zahora, the sun has definitely gone out since Wednesday- with heavy, heavy rain and very strong winds, during the day and night. But as is often the saying – we do need it. Personally, I don’t, as it makes our few occupations of walking and cycling so much harder, if not impossible, as most of this area is sand and dirt … [Read more...] about Who Turned the Sun Out?
Should you wish to and I wouldn’t. Having walked over the last week many miles and to be honest since we have been in Zahora, we have cycled and walked many miles and/or kilometres, whichever one you would like to use. I like to use miles for both cycling and more so walking, as although the number is less, miles seem more hardcore! Again, I wouldn’t want to walk in my shoes as … [Read more...] about Walking In My Shoes
This week brings the end of our first full week at Pinar San Jose, Zahora and it’s been a lovely week, in it’s own simple way-which is exactly what we were hoping for. Monday brought our first proper taste (this time) of the famed retinto beef, with a lovely one rib, rib of beef. David cooked it perfectly on the BBQ and it had a wonderful depth of flavour. Unfortunately, our … [Read more...] about Another Sherry Perhaps?
And that’s what David has been fortunate enough to be able to do this week- with different sets of friends and on two different courses. This of course makes the carrying of the golfclubs all worthwhile, even if as ever they haven’t performed quite as well as they should have done. In fact, it was a week of losing with the magic sticks for David, as on the Bank Holiday … [Read more...] about Golfing A-Round
