    Marbella and Puerto Banús

    November 13 in Spain

    Today Emilie and I took the car to Puerto Banús. It is a harbour type area in Marbella which is about a 20 minute drive from where we are staying. I was looking for some swim trunks, but the place we found had them starting at 190 euros.... um, NO THANKS!

    We continued down the port to Jack's Smokehouse and had a nice burger lunch on the sea. Afterwards we walked the pier which was about half hour walk, plus we got a few nice photos together :)

    Afterwards we spent some time at the mall getting me some new clothes and socks. I ended up with a blaster on my foot so we called it a day shortly after that. When we got back to the flat Emilie had a nap and I washed a few more pieces of clothing. After we went to the supermarket which was pretty interesting since neither of us speak much Spanish, but we eventually made it back. On the way home we both misread the gps on several occasions and got sent on a wild goose chase.

    When we got back we made a nice dinner and had a few drinks together. After some pretty intimate chats we had a tea and called it a night :)

    June 21 in Spain

    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

    Ronda - Marbella

    June 10 in Spain

    We had a scenic drive today from Ronda to Marbella. After a short stop at the Hard Rock Cafe in Marbella we explored the downtown of the city. In the city there was a big festival with lots of music, food and flamenco dancers.

    Auf dem Weg von Ronda nach Marbella sind wir mitten durch die Berge Andalusiens gefahren. Kurz bevor wir dann dir Küste erreicht haben, konnten wir sogar einen ersten Blick auf Gibraltar werfen.
    Nach einem kurzen Stop im Hard Rock Cafe von Marbella haben wir dann noch die Innenstadt von Marbella unsicher gemacht. Hier fällt auf, dass das Preisniveau in Marbella ca. doppelt so hoch ist wie in Jerez...
    In der Stadt war heute auch noch ein Fest mit viel Musik, Essen und Flamenco Tänzern.

    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!)

    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!

    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

    November 7, 2017 in Spain

    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

    Bienvenido a España

    July 12 in Spain

    Now WiFi is up and running I can post some pics!!
    Surprisingly all three mini Mackies did very well on the flight. The apartment is lovely and very comfy beds. Managed a wee paddle at the beach yesterday morning. Lewis spent the whole time throwing stones in the sea and Ross complaining about anything and everything, sky is too blue or the sea is too wet!! He did cheer up though and had a wee dip in the pool in the evening. Eve went on too!
    No idea what's planned for today. As little as possible hopefully!!

    San Pedro de Alcantara

    April 22 in Spain

    Von Alhama de Granada fuhr ich eine schmale Bergstraße wieder Richtung Málaga und schließlich nach Hause.

    Es war eine wunderschöne Fahrt und ich konnte mich gar nicht satt sehen an dem lieblichen Gebiet.

    Der Übergang von den Provinz Granada zur Provinz Málaga ist mit einem tiefen Gebirgseinschnitt sehr markant.
