Before we came to southern Spain we were a bit sceptical about the weather, thinking that we would have some cold rainy windy days, but we’ve had none of that. I’m sitting outside at the moment it’s 16 ° the sun is shining and it’s lovely sitting here writing our blog. We’re on a nice friendly site most of the people staying here have been before and say this year is colder than usual. We find the climate excellent for this time of year although it does get cold on a night from about 7 o’clock.
We’ve been relaxing on-site most of the time we’ve been here, one trip out in the van, we’ve had a few walks and a bike ride or two. Time for a trip out to Caminito del Rey ( the king’s Little path ) its a walkway pinned along the steep walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro near Ardales not far from Malaga 30 miles away. It was built in 1901 for workers to get to work on hydroelectric power plants. Over the years it became in disrepair and it became known as the worlds most dangerous walkway, five People fell to their deaths between 1999 and 2013. The walkway was closed and it was repaired and reopened in 2015 with help from the Europe Union. It’s now a tourist attraction and very spectacular it is, well worth a visit. Plenty of walking around the big reservoirs and dams the narrow gorge beautiful scenery and a one and half kilometre walk at the start through a walkway tunnel, the full walk around Caminito del Rey takes about three hours and includes a bus ride back if you wish.
The photos are incredible, it’s a great place to visit and well worth the ten euros each. Unfortunately, there was a landslide on the day we visited which blocked the way so we missed a small part of the walk but we still had a fantastic day out.
Yesterday we went out on our bikes for meal and a look around Rincon de la Victoria and Totte De Benagalbon. Two small towns along the Mediterranean sea. We did a bit of shopping and had a lovely meal and we just got back to the campsite in time for the 5 o’clock club.🍺
We bought some elephants .
That’s all for this week we’ve got one more week here.

We hope you’re enjoying our travels please leave us a comment we answer them all .😎. Que tengas un Buen dia.
