Bonjour à tous, C'est avec plaisir, ce matin que j'ai quitté, mon hôtel, non seulement la chambre était minable, mais à une trentaine de mètres, il y avait un bel et grand hôtel, où étaient garés au moins 5 autobus, tous des vieux. Ce doit être dans leur forfait, la soirée dansante. J'ai bouffé du Paso, du Tango, Valse, jusqu'à 0h30. Eux il se sont amusés, et pas en silence. Plus le bruit des fêtards, dans la rue, et les mêmes dans les couloirs. Que ces gens là vivent tard. Ce matin dur d'émergé à 7h30. Ce soir c'est parfait une chambre toute petite dans le vieux Teruel.

We should have changed Suzys before we ... read more

I have to say that Peniscola ended up quite a joy in the end. We spent our last evening doing a passiagiata along the seafront waiting for the sun to set on the castle and the sea and the lights of Peniscola to come on. The Spanish and the French though just don’t cut the mustard when it comes to passiagiatas. The Italians have that one sewn up They seem to manage it with some panache. We sat for a while watching the world go by. Young and old men sat on the beach with their fishing rods talking and whiling away the evening. It felt like the Spanish equivalent of the man shed where they met every evening to discuss the matters of the day. We spent a peaceful night with little or no noise ... read more
