    We did it!!!

    February 4 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Sometimes. Like today. I envy the youth of my daughter. Yes. I might was able to go into town after the Alhambra visit.
    But my feet said no. We were parked on top of the hill, and again. ..No! I did not want to walk it up...again...

    So. Yes. We did it. Thé Alhambra.
    Was it worth a day's travel budget?
    Yes . It was.
    Quite impressive.
    As we have seen the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul many things reminded me of that.
    I think Alhambra was more impressive.
    But you have to see for yourself.
    Now. Goodnoodles, because we overspent, and stay on this parking, to pay the robbery in the morning. .. it's more expencive than a camping. But it has no facilities at all.
    Tomorrow another "wanna see".

    5 days left before we sail to Africa.

    No way back.

    February 9 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    Last message from this side.
    We boarded the ship.
    What a different world already.
    Lieske caught many eye's, so also from the Guardia Civil. This time they waved us out of the row and had a good look at al the numbers (vin) and had some difficulty believing a "credit card" equals car papers.
    But Lieske blinked and shined, so who could resist. Although it took some time.
    Even the custom officer removed his anti-corona appliance to compliment us with our beauty.
    Tears in my eyes.
    We made the ship. Thinking of the struggle of my brother, my love at home, the things going to happen.
    The ship should have left already. But loading it takes its time.
    We confiscated our seats. 7 hours on the Mediterranean.
    So I hope we can relax and arrive safely in Algeria.

    Trevélez

    September 21 in Spain ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    Monday Monday. Schön war dieser Tag. Die Strecke war fast das doppelte von gestern und dank längerer Planung konnte ich die Höhenmeter auf knapp über 2km halten. Fühle mich sehr gut und der Tag und die Wanderung war auch ein Genuss.
    Es ging super los mit einer ganzen Packung Toast und sogar einen Toaster zum Frühstück. Dann waren auch noch Wolken am Himmel und die Sonne kam erst kurz nach Mittag dauerhaft zum Vorschein.
    Drei Pausen in Bars mit kalt und warmgetränken und zwei Trinkpausen waren heute drin. Kein Ort war wirklich schön, alles aber etwas sehenswert weil so beschaulich eben 🤷🏼‍♂️
    Auf den letzten 15 Kilometern kamen dann noch die Hälfte der Höhenmeter zusammen. Einer der schwersten Anstiege war dann im Zielort bis zum Hotel hinauf.
    Ihr merkt, wenn’s läuft und der Tag mir gefällt, weiß ich weniger zu berichten als wenn es mal nicht so optimal ist. 😄
    Verzeiht es mir.

    Preparation for the big jump

    February 7 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Yesterday as we arrived we did our washing and had a shower.
    So today we could go to "discover" Almeria.
    Due to roadworks, -They love roadworks in Spain- there is no bus.
    We could pay the guy from the restaurant who is an alternative taxi, but hey. We are Dutch!
    So we walked. 5km. Over the main road. Probably safer than cycling. We see them coming!.
    We made it into town, but did not stay long.
    At first we checked were the ferry entrance was for Oran. So we have less trouble finding that on Sunday morning.
    We went for a sandwich vegetal at El Gato Negro. Never had such gorgeous tasty sandwich before! Might go there again tomorrow. ;)
    After this feast, we went to visit the chatedral of Almeria. A beautiful place. Build as A fortres to withstand the forces from abroad. Seen some holyman making bunnies on the wall.
    We also wanted to visit the alcazaba and the Andalusia Center of photography. But we saved them for tomorrow.
    And 5km back...

    As tomorrow we probably leave this campsite, La Garoffa, one of the oldest camping in Spain, to go and stand on a parking next to the ferry. Who wants to be late for Afrika?
    Tonight we will have diner at the restaurant, and I will drink my last beer.

    Now. Maybe we go and wash Nika's hair. Because the showers here are salt water, and her hair looks now a bit..hmmm. let's say funny.
    Anyway.

    Talk2youlater!

    Before we try again...

    February 3 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    After the discovery of the beautiful town of Alhambra and his abandoned castle, we now know that that place is NOT thé Alhambra.
    (We were tiped of by the lack of tourist and the entrance fee)
    So. We travelled on. Into the direction of Granada. That should be the place to be. At least if you were looking for ..oh forget it.
    Glad we did not buy tickets.😋
    Finaly, we did some cruising south and ended up in Santa Elena.
    Saw the greasy hair of Nika and decided to get a camping read shower.
    But first...let's eat!

    Last night Europe.

    February 8 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Nervous as hell. All day.
    We parked Lieske at the harbour. Tomorrow morning we sail for Oran. But first I have to get the tickets in the morning.
    It's quite busy. Many travellers, with cars twice as high due to their top load.
    We are lucky ones. We can leave. Go into the city of Almeria and enjoy the last day in Europe.
    We did what we wanted to do yesterday.
    Visit the Andalusia photography gallery, with beautiful black and white photographs from the 1960 Spain.
    We spent quite some time in the alcazaba de Almeria. Wich offers great views of the city.
    Naturally I could not bear to leave Lieske too long alone. So we had to go back to visit her.
    As we checked her state, we were ready for a nice diner at a Moroccan restaurant.
    It was not as good as we hoped, but we enjoyed it anyway.
    Now I have to go and pee, again.
    I am so nervous.
    We sail for Africa!

    (Might be silent tomorrow, due to no internet access. But I will do my best)

    As time is on our side..

    February 6 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    We are only 5km away from the harbour were our ship will set sail to Algeria.
    Only a few days left untill we leave Europe and set our first steps into Africa.
    I am quite nervous. Nervous for what awaits us.
    But till that time. We booked a campingsite along the Mediterranean Sea, and relax.
    At least. We try.
    Going for a shower, do some washing and prepare.
    Prepare for the big jump.
    It's a rough sea. And I don't like rough sea and boats.. So I hope it will calm down.
    Take it as it comes.
    Salute!

    Sevilla

    July 15 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 35 °C

    Die heißeste Stadt Spaniens. ich habe Glück und habe ein klimatisiertes Zimmer. tagsüber kann man hier kaum raus. Das Leben beginnt abends. ich wage es trotzdem mir die Stadt um 12 Uhr anzusehen. Es ist nur heiß. Wunderschön.... aber heiß. Abends feiern wir Marianos Geburtstag und laufen noch mal durch die Stadt. Ein grandioser lustiger Abend mit viel Sangria und einem lecker Likör von dem ich mir eine Flasche sichern konnte. Die beiden nehmen sie für mich mit nach Duetschland inklusive dem Bier für Kevin. Ich habe vor aus jedem Land eine Flasche Bier für Kevin und eine Flasche Schnappes für meine Bar nach Hause zu schicken. Kev bekommt jetzt je eine Flasche aus Belgien, Frankreich und Luxembourg mitgebracht. Zusätzlich habe ich mir hier einen neuen Schlafsack geholt. Auch hier geht der alte mit in die Heimat. Und ich habe eine Waage gefunden. Satte 7 Kilo weniger habe ich jetzt. Das ist soooo geil. ich verliere das Gewicht endlich. ich habe jetzt also ca 14 Kilo weniger als beim Start auf dem Bike. Und das merkt man deutlich. Ich fühle mich gut und erleichtert. In Sevilla trennen sich unsere Wege auch wieder. Während ich nach Cadiz aufbreche fahren Silke, Mariano und seine Kids Richtung Granada. Das waren ein paar tolle Tage mit guten Gesprächen und wir haben viel gelacht.Read more

    Tarifa

    July 22 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Der südlichste Punkt des europäischen Festlandes. Unter der harten Sommersonne Andalusiens. Heute war auch ein Tag an dem ich ziemlich down war. Es war einfach ein nachdenklicher Tag. Emotional und aufwühlend. Es ging mir nicht schlecht... aber auch nicht gut. ich habe viel nachgedacht. Über die Vergangenheit, mein Leben, meine Zukunft.Read more

    Marbella

    July 27 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Ort der Schönen und Reichen. 🥴👍😁 Und der Weg hierher verlief nicht wirklich glatt. 2 Mal Reifenpanne Vorderrad, die Luftpumpe kaputt gegangen. Staub, Dreck, wieder Anstrengende Anstiege ohne Schatten. Bis ich Marbella erreicht habe ging es ganz schön drunter und drüber. Ob es das wert war? Es ist jeden Tag wert ;)Read more
