Portugal and back into Spain

posted by Cathy    19 July 2015    Spain's Costa del Sol, AND Spain's Costa Calida and Costa Blanca

The Coast of the Sun (Costa del Sol) is the name of the Spanish coastline we travel along during this section of our trip. We also head inland and have an amazing experience at Archidona where we happened upon their Good Friday parade and then stop in Granada to look at Alhambra's Islamic palace. The homes built into the rocky landscape near Guadix were really interesting but heading back to the coast again we stop at one of our favourite campsites so far - La Isleta. Just beautiful!

The Spanish coastline is wonderful and the weather is perfect as we explore each bay and beach driving along some amazing coastal roads. We also head inland occasionally to make sure we get a good feel for this area. There are many lovely towns to visit each with magnificent churches or castle ruins or something else interesting to see. We haven't had a problem finding free campsites along the way.

Spain with day trips to Morocco and Gibraltar

posted by Peter    9 Aug 2015    Spanish Coast and Montserrat AND Leaving Spain and into France

In this part of our trip we leave the Costa del Azahar and head into the Costa Daurada region of Spain (travelling from near Valencia to near Barcelona). There are lots of interesting places to explore as we zigzag along the coast and up to 60km inland. Highlights were: spotting castles and forts (mostly ruins) on most of the prominent hills we passed; finding small towns with amazing churches such as Alcala de Xivert; exploring Pensicola Old Town and beach; staying at a small winery and exporing the nearby Montserrat mountains and Monastery. Amazing!

Back to the coast again... Spain's Mediterranean beaches are beautiful with lots of towns to expore along the Costa Brava. Some of the highlights were the beaches around St Feliu de Guixol and the town that Pals Castle once protected. We crossed the border into France and the beautiful bays and beaches continued... This was one of our most scenic coastal drives.

What's this travel site about?

  • We love to travel and want to share our photos and experences with you.
  • Are you planning similar trips and holidays? The information on this site will be particularly useful for those who are planning a roadtrip, around Australia, New Zealand or UK and Europe.
  • Our home base is Queensland so we never let a holiday go by without trying somewhere new like a houseboat around Moreton Bay, sailing a catamaran around the Whitsunday Islands, camping and bush walking through rainforests or 4WD-ing at Fraser Island. Please Explore our Aussie Holiday site...

Aussie Holidays

  • Discover Australia by following our real life adventures as we take every holiday opportunity to see as much of Australia as we can. Our motto is to see Australia first and we have done our best to live up to that.
  • We love travelling, not only to the usual tourist destinations but also off-road to some of the more inaccessible and spectacular scenic areas that Australia has to offer.
  • This country is very diverse and we aim to see it all. Our longest adventure was a road trip around Australia for nearly 7 months. NOT LONG ENOUGH! We are already planning the next one which will be 12 months.

Overseas Holidays

  • Australian holidays are the focus of this website BUT of course we don't just holiday around Australia.
  • We have most recently been on a cruise around the Pacific Islands of New Caledonia, to Vanuatu, Fiji, New Zealand, Alaska and Canada.
  • In 2015 we set off on the BIG TRIP to UK and Europe for 12 months in a Motorhome.
  • Armed with a digital camera we always take WAY too many photos so culling them down to put up on the website sometimes takes a while. Check regularly for TRIPS AND PHOTOS .
