Bob and June

A day on the Nene..

 

It was time to visit Canoe 2  again we felt… This was the second visit and I am sure we will come back again.  They are such a professional setup that just can’t do enough for you.  We had planned this for the August Bank Holiday weekend but we had to change..  This was no problem for Canoe … Read more

Cordoba

Our final stop of the trip, and the only major city, was Cordoba, high on June’s list of “must sees”. Straight into the Aire (well almost, just the one one block circled a couple of times) which amazingly is situated just across from the San Basilio gate to the old city. It was also the La Fiesta De Los Patios … Read more

Antequera and the Lobo Park

Having found the missing Aire in Antequera we parked up and went alcohol harvesting in Mercadona… It was a fruitful harvest and we added money to the local coffers. Not much though as the booze was quite cheap.

Following the inevitable coffee shop stop we wandered up to the Castillo de Papabellotas ( Alcazaba). Full of history and, as so … Read more

Camino Del Rey

Plan A; Get up early and get there for when it opens and try to get a ticket? or
Plan B; follow the old adage Mad Dogs and Englishmen and go midday just as the locals are settling down to their siestas?

Based on how hot is has been and the fact that today was a bank holiday, Plan A … Read more

Coffee in Caceres

Later start today as no driving but still managed to catch the 10.00 bus from just outside the campsite and get into town with a coffee in Plaza Mayor by 10.45.

Caceres has a nice little old town with fair bit of history.  It is a town where there are fortified house, palaces and towers. As we wondered the narow streets … Read more

The shopping day

Today was always going to be a day of shopping.  We started off at the Complexe D’Artisanat in Rue de la Kasbah.  This is one of the few places in Morocco that you don’t barter.  The prices are fixed and for some that is a real help.  Personally I love a good bit of barter banter. Leaving surprisingly empty handed Read more

An even longer bimble

Today was another day to just wander around this glorious city. We started off by heading towards Jewish quarter.  We dropped by Dar Si Siad which is former palace / royal house that now houses Moroccan arts.  The building itself is along the same theme inside as the Kasbah at Telouet and the Alahambra with ornate stucco that the crafts … Read more

Just a bimble

Today was a later start… We updated yesterday’s trip on the blog and then just bimbled into town

A lunch at the main square was followed by a wander around the parks.

We managed to grab another geocache and a coffee…. it was all very slow and full of people watching.

Evening time took us back into Jemaa El Fna to eat … Read more
