    Cartagena

    December 1, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Ab morgen soll es kalt und regnerisch werden. Deswegen sind wir heute nur eine kurze Strecke gefahren, um Cartagena im Sonnenschein zu genießen. Leider hat uns die Fußgänger Navigation von Google Maps heute in die Irre geführt. Wir waren dann nur noch 90 km von dem Aussichtspunkt von einer Burg entfernt- dafür aber ca 200 Höhenmeter! Im Anschluss daran war uns ein riesiger Militärkomplex im Weg, um den wir mehr als eine halbe Stunde rumgelaufen sind. Trotzdem war es ein schöner Tag, der gerade mit Albóndigas aus der Dose seinen harmonischen Ausklang gefunden hatRead more

    Yacht Port Cartegena

    April 17, 2018 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    Yes we’re back but this time we brought the boat with us, we had a lovely crossing and stopped for lunch and a swim (25mins) in a small bay called Cala de la Salitrona just inside the large inlet that contains the Cartegena ports. There is a large commercial port on the outskirts, then a super yacht boat yard/builders, a fishing port and two yacht marinas then right inside is the Naval port including submarine pens. We are moored alongside a finger pontoon which is very comfortable but we better not get used to it as very rare in the Med. Once we had completed formalities we each had a long warm shower😀, then into town for tea and a little shopping ( milk and bananas). On the way back to the boat John noticed some large brass torpedoes inside a brightly lit door way so we stopped for a look in and the next thing we know loud music is playing and when we turned around everyone was stood still and or so we thought, looking at us ☹️ but as we walked a little further away we realised people were looking up and saw that the large Spanish flag was being lowered and therefore assumed the music to be the Spanish National Anthem, so we also stopped walking until the flag was brought down and music finished 🇪🇸. Photo 1 is scenery on the way, 3 is where we stopped for lunch, 2 is further in the inlet towards Cartegena and 4is the superyacht we photographed last time but they have now added two booms to the stylised masts.Read more

    Cartagena, Spain

    September 24, 2016 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    What an interesting city, so much to see and so little time.
    Cartagena was apparently founded over 2000 years ago, and has a rich history. In particular Roman history, there are many archaeological sites dotted around the city. One of the most impressive is the Roman amphitheatre, which costs €6 to visit or as in my case €5 with the senior discount, lol.
    The amphitheatre is a very impressive structure, which has been restored to give you a real feeling of what it must have been like when in use all those years ago.
    After the amphitheatre, I had a gentle stroll through the town which is typically Spanish with many narrow streets complete with Juliet balconies and many bars and restaurants.
    I also came across a pleasant square with some interesting mangrove type trees.
    I came across a park at the back of the town, it turns out that it is an archaeological park, free to enter and has many Roman ruins, and a great view over the city. The park is still undergoing excavation and restoration, and when finished will show a Roman forum and baths.
