Portugal and back into Spain

posted by Cathy    19 July 2015    Spain's Costa del Sol, AND Spanish South West Coast (COMING SOON)

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 very interesting but heading back to the coast again we stop at one of our favourite campsites so far - La Isleta. Just beautiful!

Spain with day trips to Morocco and Gibraltar

posted by Peter    9 July 2015    Spain to Morocco AND Gibraltar and Spanish South Coast

We were on the coast of Spain at Terifa with Morocco less than 2 hours ferry ride away. We thought it would be a shame not to hop over to Africa while we were here. We left the camper in Terifa and booked a ferry and guided tour for the day. Unfortunately the fog rolled in that morning but eventually it lifted enough for us to head off. We saw the sights of Tanger and surrounds with the Kasbar being one of the highlights.

Next stop was Gibraltar. The rock loomed out above the coastline as we approached, looking very impressive. We got our passports stamped at the border as we passed from Spain into this outpost of the United Kingdom. A walking tour through the main town centre was followed by a small group tour (6 of us in a minibus). Highlights were St Michael's Cave and the Gibraltar Tunnels. Later that afternoon we re-entered Spain and followed the coastline stopping at some lovely beaches. Missed the last Blog Entry? See all entries on the Trips and Photos page.

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 .
