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…

1st Bike Ride ~ 1st Fall

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….

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…
