Last Of The Summer Wine.

Here we are, Friday evening, and enjoying ice cream sundaes in the evening sun at the local heladeria, (ice cream parlour). Our month here has flown by, and we are due to return to the UK on Sunday. Our last planned event here is dinner together with old and new friends at their casa 10km down the road.


Our next trip is another tour of India, Margaret's 4th visit, my 3rd, booked for next March / April, followed closely by a fleeting visit to Barcelona to meet my Australian cousin who is joining a cruise ship there in May.

However, our biggest plan for next year is to bring the motorhome down here for an extended stay next Autumn, combined with a road trip. In the meantime here are a few images of the locality we have been in since the end of September. Out of season rental property here is just so cheap. This trip has cost no more than our two weeks in the nearby hotel last year. Keep travelling while you are able to!

Alcazaba Almeria - Moorish Fort.

Today's destination was a visit to the spectacular Alcazaba Almeria, an ancient Moorish fort second only to the Alhambra at Granada.


It is a little complicated to access by car, and we found the easiest way was to park the car near to the port area and complete the journey to the entrance on foot. It is up the narrow streets directly opposite the port, and you should walk up Calle De La Reina which will take you right to the entrance steps.



If you are an EU resident, and have your passport with you, then entrance is free of charge.








The monument is in relatively excellent condition and dates from the Muslim occupation of Spain of the 11th century, together with some Roman artefacts.




It reminded us of the Mogul Dynasty forts of a similar era that we visited in India.



Well worth a visit if you find yourself near to the city of Almeria.


Lunch today was at a restaurant of world renown - burger and fries at the Golden Arches.
