Seriously, lads, there's way too many Irish bars on The Costa Del Sol!! Having had a more than pleasant meander down the mountain road from Alhama De Granada which, in fairness, has it's fair share of bars per capita (none of them Irish!), we hit Malaga and there seems to be a never-ending string of … Continue reading Have Irish Emigrants Taken Over ALL The Bars On The Costa Del Sol????
We had two choices for our route for today- either head South West to Alhama De Granada or South, back to the coast. We opted for the former as we've both agreed that we are more mountain than coastal people at heart. Alhama De Granada is a pretty historic town. Of Moorish origin, it suffered … Continue reading Full Moon At Historic Alhama De Granada
Our parking spot for last night and tonight was chosen for it's convenience to Granada and was recommended by the writers of a couple of blogs we've been following, so we decided that, since Granada is most definitely a "city" and thus off-limit to us as motorhomers, on the grounds of safety and "we don't … Continue reading La Alhambra – More Palaces Than You Can Shake A Stick At!
Following yesterday's "wrong trail" debacle, enjoyable though it was, we awoke bright and late in a pretty cold Sebo - the outside temperature showed a mere 1.7C and it wasn't that much warmer inside! Heating was flicked on and a suitable waiting period ensued before either of us were brave enough to venture outside the … Continue reading Wham, Bam, We’ll Take Some Trevelez Ham..
Our plan for today was to follow a pretty well-documented 17km trail up to The Siestes Lagunas -a group of lagoons and their waterfalls at an altitude of 2500m which meant an uphill trek of over 1000m from the village. We had clothing for all seasons and a rucksack bursting with provisions - flask of … Continue reading Off-Piste Trekking With The Semples! Moral Of The Story Being… Always Buy A Trail Map!!
We were rudely awoken at 6.12am this morning by the dulcet tones of market traders setting-up their stalls - half expecting a knock on the door asking us to move, slumber was somewhat restless. The knock never came and when we DID get up and open our blinds, we saw the market was in full … Continue reading Las Alpajurras And The Snow-Capped Sierra Nevada- Hillwalkers’ And Harley Heaven
This morning we headed into Almeria's medina (the old town) to visit the Alcazaba - the 10th century fortress who's remains look down over the beautifully non-dolled-up-for-tourists medina. It's rare for us to leave Harley in the van for a few hours and even rarer for us to be prepared to pay for admission into … Continue reading Exploring Almeria – Well Almost!
.....never a truer word spoken! We had a pretty peaceful night's sleep in our forest enclave and arose full of the joys of travel! Our destination for today was Almeria - via a Lidl in Vera since their new offers start today and we have spied an LED sensor light which is on our "gotta … Continue reading As Forrest Gump Says “Life Is Like A Box Of Chocolates…..”
All excited, Team Sebo rose early this morning - well, I say "early" - I mean early for us! 9am is early for us these days! Anyhow, we made full use of the unlimited hot water in the campsite showers (since we don't know, at this point, when that little luxury will be available to … Continue reading Team Sebo Heads For The Hills
So, here we are, STILL, in Albir, STILL waiting for our post which was kindly forwarded from home almost two weeks ago! Uuuugh. Nice as this place is - and it really IS - and as fab as the weather is - pretty much unbroken sunshine most days - we've all got itchy feet now, … Continue reading Postie, Postie, Don’t Delay- The Semples Want To Be On Their Way!
