Among Vultures

Today we walked the Caminito del Rey – once known as the most dangerous trail in the world. But now walkable also for grannies. The landscape, the gorge and the rocks are impressive.

Exit of the Caminito

The vultures circle over the rocks. Luckily and exceptionally, we had the previously rarely used binoculars with us 🙂

Wow, how deep it is!

We stayed in a small familiy hotel in the mountains. After a few cold and humid days at the campsite in Ronda we enjoyed it the cozy bar with the fireplace.

Ronda City Wall
Here you can see the changeable weather
Upstairs is the city. You see the new bridge. (The old one is not on the picture.)
Isabella – courageous and brave german cyclist. Wild camper and GPS-free. Amazing, because without route planning, it is hard to get over the mountains here. She takes here the offer to go with the campers.

The driveway to Ronda was tough – 2200hm, … because wild camping is not an option for Astrid. As always, the views during the trip were worth to do it.

Gibraltar and the Island’s Monkeys

Gibraltar – view from the sea side
… and from the front. The best way to get to Gibraltar is via the airport’s airstrip – between two flights. But that will soon be a thing of the past. Gibraltar is less British than we hoped – they does not even drive on the left.

Costa de la Luz – from Cadiz to Tarifa

Coast – like in Brittany
Endless beaches at Conil. Here we met the first winterers. Well equipped with their motor homes. They shared there furniture with us because they couldn’t bear that we sit and ate on the floor.
Rest at the fishing port
Hurrah – before we have given up we found a cycable path at the coast
View of Tarifa and the surfers
Silence before we arrive in Tarifa – in the evening enjoyed the view of Africa


City beach
What had really luck with the weather on the day we walked the Caminito.
