  • Day19


    March 11, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    After another twisty drive up a mountain, we got to the lovely village of Mijas, famous for its donkey wagons. We parked the van and wandered the picturesque town. The photos say it all.
    Dinner was another adventure. Tory and Christine had spotted a restaurant on the water they wanted to try. We set out in the van and after many wrong turns parked in a MacDonalds over flow lot near where they thought the restaurant to be. We walked about a kilometre along the boardwalk in the dark and came to the place they thought might be our destination. Not about to explore any further, the men decided to stop and eat. Two days later, we walked the boardwalk only to discover the same restaurant was right below our hotel!Read more

    March 12, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    We thought yesterday’s drive was a challenge but we were wrong. Today had more twisty mountain roads coupled with a harrowing trip through the town up a narrow cobblestone road that was almost vertical! Thankfully we found a good parking lot near the “I” and set out to explore a unique city divided in two by a very deep gorge.

    The bridge area was crowded with picture takers but the rest of the walk was fairly quiet. This city is known for its location on cliffs and also for its history of cave dwellings. A few of them have been preserved and we stuck our heads in for a look. Christine’s and Charles’s lunch of lentil stew at an out of the way little restaurant was a highlight. Upon our return, Charles used the Internet to find a lovely restaurant (La Taverna) for our dinner. The waiter couldn’t be more helpful or gracious and the Tapas were the best we had had. The evening finished with all of us singing with the local guitarist......too much wine at dinner?

    Spent a couple of days visiting family in Riviera del Sol, Mijas Costa, between Fuengirola and Marbella. Toured Pueblo Mijas, famous for its donkey taxis, sat and drank sangria by the beach and enjoyed eating out. Thanks for a lovely couple of days.Read more

    Mijas Pueblo

    January 26, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Five days of R&R was enough for me as I was starting to get restless. So I planned an excursion to Mijas Pueblo, which is a very tourist-oriented white village with a population of 7,500 and an elevation of 1,500 feet. It is only 10 km from Fuengirola so it was an easy day trip requiring 2 buses. We had a very good lunch at a restaurant called The Secret Garden. The town was very quiet being off-season but I don’t think I would want to be there during the summer. A bus load of Asian tourists arrived with their selfie sticks and even that intruded on our peaceful walk through the town.Read more

    More Mijas Pueblo

    January 26, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    The white village was very pretty and had scenic views so we were happy that we made the visit, although we sure don’t look very happy in this automatically timed photo! We were going to retake it but that is when the bus load of tourists arrived and invaded our space.Read more
