    Der 2. Tag in Tarifa

    August 29 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Heute verbrachten wir einen richtig schönen Strandtag an dem Surfer- und Kiterstrand von Tarifa.

    Wir fuhren gegen Mittag mit dem WoMo vom Stadt-Stellplatz wieder raus auf den Parkplatz am Strand.
    Unglaublich was heute hier Kiter unterwegs waren - es hat richtig Spaß gemacht denen zuzusehen.

    Um den Tag am Strand noch richtig auszunutzen, beschlossen wir, erst gegen Abend unsere Reise fortzusetzen - um 19:40 ging es dann in Tarifa los - nächstes Ziel - Málaga!

    Oberhalb von Tarifa genossen wir dann noch den tollen Ausblick auf den Nachbar-Kontinent- Afrika!

    Wir können es kaum glauben das Afrika so nah liegt - ein toller Moment.

    Mit dem Sonnenuntergang fahren wir dann nach Málaga - Ankunft: 22:30 Uhr - alles schon dunkel, aber Dank Navi finden wir den kostenlosen Stellplatz (Parkplatz) sehr gut.

    Hier übernachten wir nur und fahren gleich morgen früh weiter nach Mazarrón.

    Im Schlaraffenland angekommen

    September 17 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    So langsam scheint meine Chefin meine Vorlieben erkannt zu haben, denn ich durfte den Ausflug "Kulinarische Entdeckungstour durch Málaga" begleiten. Yeah, yeah, yeah! Natürlich mit dem Auftrag etwas Feines für das restliche Team mitzubringen. Na da gibt es doch schlimmere Aufgaben! Und das ausgerechnet nach dem gestrigen Abend!Read more

    Weihnachtliches Málaga

    October 20 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Ja wie cool ist das denn bitte!? Nichts ahnend ging es heute ein letztes Mal nach Málaga und plötzlich sehe ich, dass hier bereits Ende Oktober die Straßen weihnachtlich geschmückt werden. 😁

    Wieder auf dem Schiff angekommen, hatten wir ein sehr interessantes Training namens "Critical Incidents". Ein Notfallseelsorger erzählte von seiner herausfordernden Arbeit und gab uns wertvolle Tipps wie wir regieren sollen, falls auf einem Ausflug etwas passieren sollte. Er ist oftmals in Katastrophengebieten tätig und wird nach einem Erdbeben oder Flugzeugabsturz an den Ort des Geschehens gerufen um den Angehörigen zur Seite zu stehen. Hochinteressant!Read more

    Malaga - auf den Spuren Picassos

    October 3 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Ja, wie es der Titel schon erahnen lässt, wartete heute ein sehr spritziger Ausflug auf mich. 😖
    Wie ich lernen durfte, ist der Künstler Pablo Picasso hier geboren worden und so ging es in sein Geburtshaus und anschließend für schlappe 2h in das Picasso-Museum um schlappe 238 seiner Werke zu begutachten und über jeden seiner Pinselstriche informiert zu werden. 😩 Ok, es war nicht ganz so schlimm wie erwartet und witzig war, dass ich in der Schule im Kunstunterricht meine Abschlussarbeit über Pablo Picasso geschrieben und seine Zeichnungen akribisch auseinandergenommen habe und heute stand ich dann plötzlich vor den Originalen. So schließt sich der Kreis. 😊
    Und eine schöne Stadtführung sowie eine Besichtigung der Festung Gibralfaro gab es ja auch noch.
    Ach ja und einer meiner Gäste war ein renommierter Börsenmakler. Da hab ich natürlich gleich noch ein paar heiße Tipps abgestaubt. Der Ausflug war also doch gar nicht so verkehrt wie ursprünglich angenommen. 🙂

    Andalusia Day in Malaga

    February 28 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Our journey from Portugal to Spain took us around busy Seville (which would have been quicker had the outer ring road been completed!) and then on to a campsite overlooking La Vinuela lake, a perfect location in order to visit our friends Nigel and Tracy whom we hadn't seen for a year.

    Unfortunately, Tracy was back in the UK but we entertained ourselves in her absence with a trip into the historical centre of Malaga. It was a beautiful day and the streets were packed with Spanish families enjoying the outdoors but shouldn't the children have been at school and the parents at work on a weekday? Normally yes, but it was Andalusia Day and everyone was making the most of a day off.

    We wandered around the old town, which has been beautifully restored; pedestrian streets flanked by both modern shops and traditional tapas bars, as well as a Gothic cathedral and the Alcazabar complete with a roman amphitheatre. The port area has been rebuilt and now welcomes cruiseships to swell the town's coffers.

    There are lots of green spaces throughout the busy centre with wild parakeets screeching through the treetops and a golden, sandy beach along its edge.

    The next day we met up with Peter and Sally, friends of Nigel and Tracy that we had met the year before, for a beachfront lunch. Fish, octopus, lamb and goat were all enjoyed as we caught up with one another.

    Wish we could have stayed longer but we look forward to returning later in the year.

    Caminito del Rey

    September 23 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    We had an early start today, as we had to meet the small group and our tour leader on the other side of the canal, about a 15 minute walk from our apartment, at 8:30 am. There were eight of us on the tour - 3 from Canada (Toronto and Quebec), 2 from Portugal, 1 from London, and us. Our guide for the day was Alfonso, a very tall Spaniard ,who has lived in Malaga for many years, but is originally from the North of Spain.

    It was an amazing day. We trekked about 8 kilometres, and climbed up and down hundreds of stairs. I clocked up 20,650 steps, and felt it afterwards. The views and scenery were spectacular, but if you have a fear of heights, this is not the trek for you. The walkway we used was bolted to the side of a sheer rocky cliff, on one side of a deep, narrow gorge.

    There is a community of vultures in the area that have grown from less than 5, to a population of nearly 200. They live atop the cliffs, and farmers in the area have agreed that if any of their sheep, cows or goats die, they donate the animal to the vultures. The cliffs and rock formations are mainly limestone and sandstone, and create a wonderful landscape whichever way you look.

    Alfonso brought along a picnic for us to have about half way through the trek comprising manchego cheese, chorizo, bread and bananas. It was very thoughtful to provide this delicious picnic, and greatly enjoyed and appreciated. Ian, of course, loved the chorizo.

    During the second half of the trek we continued to meander along the walkway, until we reached a suspension bridge that was made of metal grating, so that if you looked down you could see all the way to the river/canal - it was a long way down! Both Ian and I coped with the heights - there were some Danish girls on a school trek, and 2 of them were absolutely petrified of heights, one just clung to the rock face and did not look down. We talked to her and encouraged her along the way, and she had a beaming smile once she looked back at what she had achieved at the end. The other girl just broke down into tears, a little overwhelmed by the experience. These girls were on a school trip, and had to do the trek, which seems a bit cruel to me.

    We had to trek another kilometre once we completed the walk to catch a shuttle bus back to the start, as the trek is only one way (thank god). The winding and narrow roads the bus driver had to navigate through were a challenge. Once back to the start, we jumped back into Alfonso’s van for the drive back to Malaga. It was tough going at times but a memorable experience that we both thoroughly enjoyed. Alfonso was a great guide, and very cheeky, and we enjoyed some good banter with him and our fellow trekkies - it was a great little group and we got along well.

    Dinner in

    September 23 in Spain ⋅ ☁️ 25 °C

    After a big day outdoors in the fresh air and sunshine, and inspired by the lovely picnic Alfonso made for us, we decided to go to the local supermarket and buy some cold meats, cheese, tomatoes, bread and red wine,and eat in the comfort of our apartment. As well as being easy and comfortable (I got into my pyjamas), it is also very cheap to do this. One of the reasons we love using Airbnb is that we have the flexibility to eat in every so often.

    On Alfonso’s recommendation, we ordered some top shelf Jamon Iberico, which was absolutely fabulous - just about melted in you mouth. To accompany the jamon, we got a punnet of cherry tomatoes that were deep red and actually tasted like tomatoes, some manchego cheese (my favourite cheese now, made from sheep’s milk), chorizo, mortadella, bread and red wine a - Crianza from the Ribera Del Duero region (Alphonso’s favourite region).
