      Caudete to Almansa

      May 15, 2023 in Spain

      The scenery is settling into flat land and cultivated fields. Mountains are now in the rear view mirror. Since it’s springtime, the crops are growing (lettuce, wheat, artichokes, corn) and the trees are green (lots of olives, almonds, and other fruit trees I can’t identify). But the surrounding hills and rocky outcrops are brown and desolate. We are not in wildflower country, which I was sort of expecting. But the landscape makes for more introspection, as the backdrop doesn’t grab my attention as much. So the hours are filled with thought about trivial things, interesting things, and even important things on occasion. But I have not yet solved any of life’s greatest problems.

      I have walked a route that crisscrosses with this one —the Levante from Valencia. The next two nights will be in places I’ve been before. For those who wonder why I would ever go back to the same place, here’s a passage from a Portuguese. Nobel prize winner, that I really love.

      "The end of one journey is simply the start of another. You have to see what you missed the first time, see again what you already saw, see in springtime what you saw in summer, in daylight what you saw at night, see the sun shining where you saw the rain falling, see crops growing, the fruit ripen, the stone which has moved, the shadow that was not there before. You have to go back to the footsteps already taken, to go over them again or add fresh ones alongside them.You have to start the journey anew. Always"
      Jose Saramago, A Journey to Portugal

      After a delicious lunch, it was time to visit the castle. All I can say is - fabulous.

      Caudete und Baños de Fortuna

      November 12, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

      Wir verlassen den Campingplatz in Alcala de Xivert und fahren Richtung Baños de Fortuna. Unterwegs müssen wir noch einkaufen. Das erledigen wir in Caudete und bei der Gelegenheit sehen wir uns im Ort um.
      Unseren Stellplatz in Camping la Fuente haben wir erst ab morgen reserviert. Deshalb stehen wir diese Nacht auf dem Parkplatz im Ort.
