      September 17, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

      Albacete
      The big day has finally come. Bea and Thibi will get married today. In the morning Wolf and the other four best men help Thibi getting dressed and make him feel relaxed in the hotel. In the meantime Bea is getting ready aswell with her bridesmaids. At 1 pm we arrive at the church, where the official act of the wedding is taking place. 1,5 h later Bea and Thibi leave the church as Mr. and Mrs. The party train goes on to Finca Los Prados, a magical place in the countryside. After all the food, speeches, games and fotos we start into a crazy party night and dance like there was no tomorrow with all our friends from around the world. What an emotional and fairy tale day it has been. Here's to love and friendship 💕Read more

      Spanish family lunch

      September 18, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

      Albacete --> Madrid
      Nach der langen Nacht schaffen wir es gerade noch rechtzeitig um 12:30 aus dem Hotel aus zu checken. Zum Mittagessen werden wir von Beas Familie in ihr Familien-Stammlokal eingeladen. Zur Begrüßung erhält Nina von Bea den Brautstrauß. Nach spanischer Tradition wird der Brautstrauß an diejenige gegeben, die als nächstes heiraten soll/sollte. Was ein Zufall ;) Nina und Wolf sind gerührt. Mit der sehr herzlichen Familie von Bea reden wir lange über die zurückliegende Hochzeit, spanische Kultur und unsere bevorstehende Reise. Dann ist es Zeit Abschied zu nehmen von Thibi, Bea und Familie, denn wir müssen den Zug zurück nach Madrid nehmen. Wir lassen den Abend beim Abendessen auf dem Plaza Mayor ausklingen und fallen nach dem traumhaften Hochzeitswochenende mit freudiger Erwartung auf Canada ins Bett.Read more

      Auf nach Albacete!

      September 16, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

      Madrid —> Albacete

      Wir haben ca. 4h Zeit für Sightseeing in Madrid… 15.000 Schritte später hat Wolf alle seine Highlights präsentiert: Puerta del Sol, Placa Major, Parque del Retiro, Placio de Cristal,… Schnell noch Mittag mit Friedi und Mauritz und schwupps gehts schon weiter nach Albacete zur lang ersehnten Reunion mit allen lieben Menschen die Wolf in Valencia kennengelernt hat und vielen neuen Gesichtern aus Thibis und Beas Freundeskreisen. Nach einer kleinen Vorhochzeits-Party beenden wir die Nacht auf dem bekanntesten Straßenfest von Albacete: Feria. Nutella Crepe und Autoscooter, was will man mehr!?Read more

      Albacete

      March 6, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

      Ein bisschen Stadtbesichtung.
      Die Cathedrale ist von außen unscheinbar.
      Hat aber innen ganz tolle Wandmalereien.
      Konnten wir leider nicht fotografieren, war gerade Gottesdienst.
      Ein paar Häuser mit schönen Fassaden gibt es auch.
      Ebenfalls sehenswert ist die Pasaje de Lodares.
      Sonst hat der Ort wenig Charme.

      Genave to Chinchilla

      November 10, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

      We both had a lay in this morning and woke up at 7:45am. We had a very peaceful night in the beautiful airè at Genave.
      Just after 9am we went for a walk into the town. A few shops were open and we brought some freshly baked bread for breakfast, had a Wander around the streets and went to see the bullring and then went back to Wanda to have Jam on fresh bread for breakfast.
      At 10:30am we were ready to leave and on the way out we stopped at the service point to empty the toilet and grey waste and fill up the fresh water. Today was going to be a busy day of driving. Wanda needed LPG and diesel at some point and we also needed fresh food for the cupboards so we plotted the Sat Nav and headed for the city of Albecete 70 miles away, following the N322 all the way through winding roads and a canyon like landscape.
      Just after 1pm we were at the edge of the city and our first stop was Lidl, and it was a big one so we managed to get all of our shopping and some junk food to fill out junk food cupboard and from there we went to a Decathlon store just a mile down the road to replace my inner tubes that I had used and I found a new type of tyre lever and a decent puncture repair kit.
      Then it was to our final destination of the day and our park up for the night in the city of chinchilla and on route we found a garage that did LPG so we filled Wanda and her gas tanks.
      We arrived in Chinchilla de Monte-Aragon at 3:20pm and it was easy to get to the area de auto caravans and after we parked up the first thing we did was make a cup of tea and check google to see what this town had to offer and at first glance it looked promising as there was a huge castle on the hill.
      Chinchilla de Montearagón preserves the beauty of its medieval layout and is declared as a Historic-Artistic Site and its streets are lined with stone mansions emblazoned with coats of arms, testimony to the ancient noblemen who inhabited it years ago. It has a castle and a fortress in a strategic position on the hilltop and the castle had Iberian and Roman bases and even an Arab origin, but the one we see today on the hill is from the 15th century and remains, after numerous reforms, in excellent condition, Crowning the rock and bordering the old town, the walls vary in height and open eyes to its interior from different doorways.
      We both knew nothing would be open now as it was siesta time for the Spanish so Ellie looked up the local tourist information point and that said it would open again at 5pm until 8pm so we waited around and left Wanda at 5:10pm to have a look around.
      We walked up the hill away from the airè and through an archway left from when Chinchilla was a walled city and into the main town square called the Plaza de La Mancha. Here we had the huge church of Santa Maria Del Salvador, but it was closed. Next to it was the Palace de Nuñez Cortès also closed, and next to that was the tourist information centre. That was also closed. We rechecked google for the opening hours and checked the signs on the door and everything said it should have been open from 5pm until 8pm. We will try again in the morning.
      Feeling a little p’eed off we went for a walk around the streets anyway and it looks like a fascinating town. It’s full of cobbled streets and archways, history is oozing out if every doorway and all we want to do is find out when things are open or if they open.
      Disappointed but excited at the same time to see what might be open tomorrow we went back to Wanda, watching the sun set on the way and turning the big white clouds into pink clouds that made it look like the sky was full of candy floss.

      Chinchilla de Monte Aragon

      August 6, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

      Dia de ir buscar a van. Depois do café pegamos um uber até o depósito da Indie Campers e fomos recepcionados por um funcionaria portuguesa que nos explicou as funcionalidades da nossa van. Depois de um check-in de mais de uma hora partimos para o supermercado para comprar mantimentos e almoçamos no burger king do lado do mercado mesmo.
      Pegamos a estrada rumo ao sul para visitar as ruinas do castelo de Chinchilla de Monte Aragon. O castelo é imponente, visto de longe da estrada mesmo, mas suas portas estavam fechadas. Ele é cercado por um fosso bem fundo, que servia como uma otima proteção em periodos de conflito.
      A ideia era dormir por la mesmo, mas como estava muito vazio a galera achou melhor ir direto para o festival, onde teriamos banheiros de forma mais fácil.
      Mais uma hora de estrada e chegamos em Villena. Arrumamos um lugar no estacionamento de campers e fomos tomar um banho e comer uma pizza no centro da cidade.

      Gastos:

      Café: 11,50
      Uber: 14,00
      Mercado: 50,00
      Gelo: 1,70
      Burguer King: 13,40
      Pizza; 7,00
