New Year, New Beginnings…

Firstly, is it OK to wish you all a Happy New Year still? I’m never quite sure when it’s too late to do so. Hope you all had a fantastic Christmastime. I know we did, when we arrived back in the UK we spent the festive period in Brighton with family, letting everyone do all…

Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year to You All.

I’m wishing you all a very Merry Christmas. I have some more posts to write ‘re Spain but haven’t had enough time, so please watch this space. When we finally get home I will continue to write and finish the holiday blog. Christmas is about spending time with family and friends and creating happy memories…

Talented Crafters

There are some very talented around and on Saturday the annual Bonterra Park Christmas Crafters market event was on. I was asked to join Team Linda, who is so talented, not only is she a lovely lady, she makes stunning jewellery, is an amazing artist and makes the most beautiful cards. Anyway, I was asked…

Jamming Again..

Friday at 4pm – 6pm is now a jammin’ session  (no ‘G’) in the bar and as usual we go down to support and join in the fun (and have a few beers at happy hour prices). As its our last week here in Bonterra, we managed to meet up with quite a few of…

Are we in Toy Story 5?

Entering Oropesa Another hot sunny day, so we got ready and took the bikes along the Via Verde towards Oropesa, but this time we would venture a little further around to the next town/resort/village, Marina D’or, we had no idea what awaited us just around the headland. It’s decadent beyond belief, like wandering into a…

Food Glorious Food…

I made a Cauliflower Macaroni and Cheese in the Ramoska the other evening for supper, it was delicious, so I thought I’d share with you how this fantastic piece of equipment does the job. A Remoska is basically  a mini electric oven with the cooking element housed in the lid (It looks like a casserole pot with lid). Consisting…

We’re Jammin’, jammin’…

Last Friday we were invited to an impromptu jamming session at the site bar, our friend and old colleague Bernie was playing in the group. So we went along to support and listen… What a great time we all had, listening to live music by 4 talented guys who just play and sing for the…

And then it was nearly Christmas….

We’ve had some great weather over the past couple of weeks, the temperatures have slowly crept up in the 20°s , and the days have been sunny and bright. Campers are happy and the world seems to have reverted back to its laid back style. The cycle path to Castellon has been a delight, we…

The days fly by… then Valencia

I can’t believe it’s been nearly three weeks since I last posted. The days are going past in a blur.  We are settling into life on the site, each day making the decision of what to do according to the weather. Which to be honest hasn’t been that great. It’s still warm compared to the…

1st Bike Ride ~ 1st Fall

Lovely day for a bike ride, after all that’s what we bought the bikes for. I can remember being in Swansea the day we purchased them and envisaging (if that’s a word) cycling in Spain. Got on mine this morning, thought I’d just make sure I was ok before going out on road (cos I’m…
