And finally…

Sorry its been a week or so since the last blog, but unfortunately I had a bit of a turn (literally), which has laid me up and made the journey home very uncomfortable.  But I had drafted this farewell so thought I’d post it anyway. It’s the last day and we are finally leaving our…

Troglodytes and Scary Nights…

Seven weeks after we left home, we said goodbye to Bonterra Park and all the wonderful people we’ve met. After taking memory photographs of the Fab 4, we made our way out of Benicassim and on towards Valencia on the N340. We picked up the signs to Zaragoza where we were due to stay overnight at…

A trip up in the Desert

Todsy, Bernie and Lyn are taking us up to the Desert de las Palmas (Desert of the Palms). It seemed funny driving in a car again. We drove out Benicassim past table-top roundabout and out to the start of the desert road. We climbed up for more than 20mins (up 1:6), around deep hairpin bends….

Two Soooups…

As it is our last Sunday on site at Bonterra Park we had arranged to go and have Sunday lunch with our pitch neighbours. They kindly booked a table for the four of us for 3pm today. It was a lovely morning and everyone in our little cul-de-sac area were outside chatting and laughing this…

Vià Verde

We had heard about a cycle and walking route called the the Vià Verde which hugs the coastline and runs for about 5-6 miles along a disused railway track from Beniscassim to Oropesa. So today we thought we would try and find it. So after a few false starts we finally managed to leave site…

Mercado Central Dias

Thursday is market day here in Benicassim.  People here say it’s quite good. So we amble on down past the bridge to nowhere…. to the market. It is bustling with folk. The vegetable stalls look so inviting. What shall we buy first? Arhhh… seems the churros are calling. €3 For 9 wow… freshly cooked hot…

A Tale of Two Cities

We went to Valencia today, the coach was picking us up at 9am so an early start. Mike had set the alarm for 6.30am and we duly got up in the dark and cold. We went for a shower and realised we had enough time for a bit of breakfast. All I had was half…

Benicassim

Today we went to the Benicassim beach front and had a wonderful relaxing time just strolling along the empty promenade. The sun was high in the sky with just a few wisps of clouds. As we wandered along the front, we noticed plaques here and there, back in the 1920s & 30s, Beniscassim was the…

A Gaudi Wowdy Day…

Today, we went back to Barcelona to see some of Gaudi’s famous buildings. It was amazing and everything I hoped it would be. Sometimes things in your head never quite match up to the real thing, but Gaudi was a genius. I have never seen anything quite like this architecture before and he allows you…
