    Arcos de la Frontera

    September 21, 2017 in Spain

    Újabb fehér falu, ami a dombtetőn álló katedrálisairól híres. ( igen ebből itt van egy pár)
    Bolyongtunk jobbra balra, de valahogy nem találtuk meg a hely báját... lehet azért mert nem volt?!
    Végül megettük a jól megérdemelt leveseinket és tovább haladtunk Sevilla felé. Lesz ott bőven látnivaló, nem is baj ha nem késő éjjel érkezünk.

    Arcos de la Frontera

    July 6, 2017 in Spain

    After a foggy start to the day at Grazelama, little did we know what adventures would await us arriving here at Arcos de la Frontera. Our guidebook and various travel blogs suggested to park outside the old town & to take a taxi to the guest house, which of course we ignored. We soon realised the super tiny cobble stone streets with medieval tiny arches and narrow corners, dotted with seats & tables from local restaurants were not meant for cars. While Annette was driving we folded in the side mirrors, the collision alarm from our hire car was on full alert from all sides - all while a local tried to coax us into turning into even narrower corners only so he could earn a few euros for helping us get out again!. Notwithstanding the madness of our predicament Annette managed to keep her cool, smiling. By this time I was determined to abandon our mission & to get out of the old town by the fastest way possible. Due to incredible good luck & probably because of Annette's slow driving the name of our guesthouse appeared on the wall of one of the houses. We had to stop the local traffic & unload our car into the courtyard & I drove the car a little further down the hill where miraculously I found parking. The whole episode was too traumatic for contemporaneous photography, so we went back later to record little of the local panorama that had given rise to so much consternation.Read more

    They say every picture tells a story - well, here we have a few. Whilst eating for the first time at what quickly became our favourite restaurant in Arcos, the police drove by...quickly necessitating that one of the restaurants customers, who was standing next to one of the tables with her twin stroller and two small children, step back to let the police drive through (because the tabbles are in fact on the 'street' edge)...and the police then struggled to turn the next tight corner (as we later observed all other drivers also did). It was hard not to be bemused by it all...Read more
