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.
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
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?
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
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.
Even we motorhomers get caught up in the Christmas rush and hullabaloo especially when we are very fortunate enough to have 10 family and friends visiting for Christmas and us wanting like everyone to make it as special as possible. The weather as you all will know was against us and had caused much devastation to the area of Murcia where we were to spend this period. It’s … [Read more...] about Turkey Stuffing
Mon 25/07/16: Feast Day of Santiago. So the night before lots of fireworks again in the main town. We were planning to go but somehow just didn’t make it, but we watched from a far and spectacular they were. The Monday again lots going on in the main square and all around the cathedral as the locals celebrated their Saints Days with mass and various family feasts whilst the … [Read more...] about Magic Mushroom
