    June 21, 2018 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 22 °C

    Gestern sind wir mit Gerrit Jan und Joke weiter gefahren nach Estepona. Am Abend haben wir uns das Spanien Spiel in einem Irish Pub in der Stadt angeschaut. Heute sind wir Abends nach Marbella gefahren. Die Stadt ist sehr gepflegt. Es gibt viele kleine Gassen mit Läden. Außerdem gibt es einen Hafen für große Yachten, ein Stückchen außerhalb des Zentrums, den wir aber nicht angeschaut haben. Ein wunderschönes Blumen-Städtchen.Read more

    Errands and Flamenco, Marbesa

    May 7, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    We found a shopping center and bought some things we needed, a cooler and freezer packs, and conditioning shampoo. It was hard to find the combination, but then I saw 2X1 on the label and figured out that was it—there was only one choice. We could not find peanut butter even though it is a big store similar to Walmart. We found a casino and exchanged currency, even though, surprisingly, the gaming area was closed.

    In the evening we went to an Italian restaurant in our complex, and enjoyed a Flamenco show. We were in the front row, and saw the dancer up close. She invited Dean to come and dance with her and of course he said YES! We are surprised that our body clocks are similar to the Spaniards’ already. Breakfast around 9:00, lunch around 2:00, and dinner around 8:00. (They actually eat dinner around 9:00 but that’s way too late for us!)

    Costa del Sol, Marbesa, Spain

    May 5, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    We finally reached our timeshare exchange in Marbesa. We have a condo on the third floor so we can see the Mediterranean Sea from our balcony! Thank goodness there is an elevator! We enjoyed dinner and a Spanish wine on the balcony, celebrating our gladness to stay in one place for a week. We are still learning how to take a selfie--it takes both of us!Read more

    Miles of Olive Groves to Marbesa

    May 5, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    After bidding our host good-bye, we drove to the southern coast. It was a beautiful drive of about 6 hours, and we saw olive groves the whole way! The land changed from slightly hilly to more hilly and then mountainous as we neared the coast. Some of those olive trees are a long ways up the mountainsides. We can’t figure out how they are harvested! We also saw lots of flowers, including multitudes of red poppies!Read more

  • Day206


    November 7, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Well it's a lot nicer than I expected probably helped by the fact that we are very out of season so the place isn't very busy but neither is it deserted. the waterfront is as you would imagine, full of high rise buildings but the hill/mountainous backdrop is impressive photo 1, but the old town with its narrow winding streets and green plazas is very easy to enjoy, photos 4, 5 &6. Photos 2&3 are of some of the Salvatore Dali sculptures for our more arty followers.Read more

    Die Perlen von Marbella

    April 24, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Inge 'Pearl' Rinkhoff, Kathrins Tante, die bei Vox mit dem Titel dieses Footprints als Teil der Marbella-Schickeria Furore macht, haben wir leider nicht getroffen. Leider auch nicht Manfred 'Manni' Kraatz, den ebenfalls durch die Sendung 'Goodbye Deutschland' (Folge: 'Familie Kraatz- jetzt geht's um die Wurst') bekannt gewordenen Bratwurstkönig der Stadt. Dafür begegneten wir aber dem Rest der Glamourbande bei unserem betont im Camperstil abgehaltenen Bummel über die Prachtmeile. Definitiv nicht unsere Welt!
    Den Rest der Costa del Sol kann man auch nur zügig durchfahren. Alles wirkt zugebaut und seelenlos. Was für eine wundervolle Ausnahme doch Salobreña darstellt!
