We have moved on from the Costa del Luz to the Costa del Sol and the Mediterranean Sea. [...]
After an overnight stay in Caceres, we arrived safely in Conil on Friday 13 December where we will be spending Christmas. We are staying at Camping La Rosaleda just outside this pretty Spanish resort. It is a pleasant walk into the town from the campsite. [...]
After gale force winds crossing the English Channel and Bay of Biscay from Portsmouth to Bilbao we have arrived safely for our third long winter break in Spain.

Wonderful weather today and again a surprise with how green everything was. We had a really nice trip and Jan and Paul enjoyed their first cruise experience doing Denham deep lock. [...]
Today we travelled further along the Grand Union canal to moor up opposite Rugby Boat Sales which was where we bought "Iron Butterfly" back in October 2017. This was probably one of the best decisions we have made. [...]
We visited this Camping Almayate Costa last year just one day after it had re-opened following a Winter closure. Last year we thought it was rather bleak and a bit austere. [...]
Our friends Anita and Beat from Switzerland took us to El Jardin de Kalifa and what a gem. Situated in Vejer which is a beautiful moorish town perched on the side of a big hill in Andalusia. It is as impressive as Granada and Córdoba. [...]

It is perched 300m above vast valleys with stunning views from every way you look. [...]
Finally arrived in Salamanca which is the first stop on our Winter Adventure 2018/19 after a long but uneventful journey from Bilbao International port. [...]
