We finally found where the German campervans hide!
We met the most cheerful chiringuito ‘costa recife ‘(and if you don’t know what is Chiringuito, just look for any bar on a beach along the coast and order tortilla de cameron- da best….)
They just proudly planted an olive tree outside and wanted a blessing from Palestine’s olive trees 🙂 so we watered the tree with some olive oil that my mom has sent me from the village. We will wait 10 years and come to check on it.
Parque national de Donana
Sand dunes in Los Canos de Meca (North west of Tarifa)
Go to Granada, great …. Tour the old city, have kanja and a tapa, check out street flamenco shows….Then head to ‘Sant De Fe’ at 5am for a rave in between the olives grove and natural hot springs!!! Make sure policija won’t know about the party.
It took us 12 hours on the road from the coast of Italy, crossing French Riviera and finally getting to Catalonia!
Our first stop in Catalonia was in cape de creos which is a beautiful national park full of mountains, beaches and bays. we stopped in a village called Cadaques when a nice gentleman approached Alex and asked if he needed help. He was a German man who explained to us that campervans are not allowed in the village. He offered to host the yellow bus on his property for the night. We gladly agreed and drove behind him on top of a hill not knowing that he actually lives on top of a stunning hill overlooking bays and mountains. Klaus and Monica invited us to take a swim in their pool on the terrace and Charlie the dog and Piggy the wild bore kept sniffing around us.
Cape de creos region is highly recommended, most of the beaches don’t allow camping but lots of campervans take the chance and stay overnight. Afterwards, we drove to Girona to meet Laura and Xabi for a night in the old city ( if you visit the city, stop in an ayurovedic restaurant called La Terra in the old city), then we drove to a small village besides a town called Vic, where we spent two days at their place with a real bedroom and showers 🙂 hurray.

September 11th is a national day for the Catalan people and this year is a special year where people hold hands and walk on the streets (don’t really know why) and we spent it in a beach called Cala S’Alguer -in Costa Brava- surrounded by sandy beaches and magnificent hiking trails. Getting fit for a party in Barcelona this weekend!
