So after our epic journey of over 3,200km we arrived at our destination of Malaga in Spain. It was great to catch up with Rob’s family again and also have a bed outside of the van for a change. Gee, 9 nights in one place, that’s the most time in one destination since the end of March (almost 6 months). Fred and Dora Brown - The couple with no fixed abode! Our timeshare was in the resort of Mijas Golf Club, although we were not actually on the course. We spent the first few days exploring the area, catching up on some much needed sun, frolicking on the beaches and relaxing by the pool. Oh of course the food and wine! Good red grape, at an even better price, tapas and fresh paella what else can ... read more

This weekend five of my friends and I hopped on a bus to Cadiz, a city near the coast of southern Spain.

I love Spain, I just wonder what it will be like when it is finished? In my last entry, I was just south of Valencia. Well, have done some travelling since then And met some interesting people, not to mention haveing some fantastic weather (that has now deserted me). Interesting stops include, Benedorm (full of old Brits strolling up and down the sea front. However, it is very clean, with beaches hoovered every night. I also found a bar that the local bikers use, where there was entertainment in the form of a Blues brothers tribute, who were very good), Alicante (well worth a visit for the hill top fortress of Castillo de Santa Barbara), Alhama de Murcia (where I stopped in a campsite in the mountains. Talking to locals, the guy who owns Orange cycles ... read more
