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.
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…..
We have been on the Costa del Luz now for 7 weeks, still in semi lockdown and are officially unable to move around. Though we have seen many vans heading up and down the coast regardless, we will be setting off later this week heading for Gibraltar to fly back to the UK for Christmas. It is amazing just how many hoops there are involved if you want to do this right! Anyway, … [Read more...] about Driving Home for Christmas
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?
We have had a lovely couple of weeks shooting down the coast of Spain heading to the start of our first Elddis adventure back in 2016. Having had the chance to play golf twice last week this week we have been lucky enough to meet up with old friends near where I spent many childhood Easters and summer holidays, Marbella. Like everything when you look back it is all different … [Read more...] about The Sting
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
Last week we had crossed back into France and stayed at St Tropez, and we had had to make some decisions on where we would feel most comfortable and safe during these strange times. The sun had returned, and we took a two-day break and had a walk about ate in and relaxed. Though Covid numbers are rising throughout Europe we wanted to be warm as well as safe, for the next … [Read more...] about Another Bump in The Road.
