30th July 2014: Fuente De hike

We got up early again and prepared for a long day in the mountains. We had breakfast, prepared packed lunches and washed up before driving 25 minutes along the valley to Fuente De. From here, we took the cable car 800m up the mountain to about 1700m. We enjoyed the view from the viewing platform... Continue Reading →

John had done his research and found out there were quieter beaches away from the car parks, and a coastal path linking them, so we decided... Continue Reading →

23rd July 2014: Feeling poorly :-(

I went to bed early last night because, while John’s got better, my headache got steadily worse and I started to feel sick. We woke at 7.00 this morning because we’d forgotten to shut the blinds and the sun was streaming in but, once they were closed we fell back to sleep for a couple... Continue Reading →
