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
Hi there guys! ‘Pino’ here you know the cat the that the humans keep telling you about. Anyway, they thought it would be a good idea for me to write the Blog this week! I first introduced myself to the stupid people back in November and carefully make them think that I needed help and perhaps adopting. In fact, I saw their motorhome and realised that as British they would … [Read more...] about Should I stay or should I go??
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.
After a break for Christmas where we were able to visit friends along the Andalusian coast, we are back in Zahora in the area of Cadiz and this is where we will stay for the time being. We can only count ourselves lucky as our new revised lockdown is not as onerous as many other countries. We can still go out and enjoy a meal up until 6.00pm and curfew they would want to start … [Read more...] about Hotel Cadizfornia
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!
Well that was an interesting year, when we started 2020 life seemed so simple, we were getting ready for what we thought would be a fairly different adventure, by driving to Azerbaijan in our lovely Elddis Encore 250 motorhome. There would be some challenges but all in all an exceedingly long drive across new countries meeting lovely people, what possibly could go … [Read more...] about New Year New hope.
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?
