      As Usual

      March 22, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

      The weather returned to what we had come to expect; sunny with some clouds and 16 C.
      As usual, we left around 10 a.m. but this time checked the internet to confirm our route.
      Our day trip this time was a half hour jaunt north to a pretty town called Polop. Amazingly the van’s GPS found the town easily (it probably knew we were checking it).

      We parked near an “I” which to our surprise was open, and got a local map and a brief history of a famous Spanish author, Gabriel Miro, who had lived there. Back in the van, we wound our way through narrow streets, up the mountain (again) to the old town. We were forced to walk the last kilometre, past small houses, a church, through a small square to the remains of the castle. Almost at the top, there was a small bar/cafe. We stopped for coffee, delicious croissants and a magnificent view.

      That evening we returned to Lings, a restaurant we had visited the first night. The staff is friendly, the food delicious and it was a lovely ending to our stay.

    • Day 12


      October 4, 2023 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

      Polop nos recibe con sus fiestas patronales. San Francisco de Asís. Unai disfruta con ver a niños jugando, petardos sonando, y una banda tocando en la procesión que seguimos por todo el pueblo.

      Música, esa que mantiene las tradiciones de los pueblos, acompañada de las campanadas de la Iglesia, esa que emociona, alegra y aviva el corazón. Asombrado, entusiasmado y contento sigue Unai con la mirada a cada uno de los instrumentos, cada uno de los trajes típicos, cada una de las emociones de las otras personas.

      Izei duerme plácidamente. Con ternura, con amor 🧡.

      Sin duda alguna, la improvisación nos conduce a momentos únicos. Qué bien disfrutarlo en familia 🥰.
