Day 12

Our checkout time wasn’t until midday so we took full advantage of that and had a lazy morning in the hotel room, dipping into our supplies for breakfast rather than going out to find somewhere to eat. We used the free WiFi to look into our options for staying in the Cabo de Gata Natural… Continue reading Day 12

Day 11

Waking up on a deserted beach = Bliss. I had a morning swim and wash in the sea whilst O started the fire, then we swapped and I boiled some water for tea whilst O washed and swam. For breakfast we had our last two kiwis and dipped into our emergency peanuts and dark chocolate… Continue reading Day 11

Day 8

I’ve been fighting some kind of illness (probably just the inevitable body adjusting to all the different germs after being isolated in the woods with the same people for a year) for a lot of this journey, which has made me extra sleepy (and I’m already pretty sleepy!). The mornings and evenings in particular, I… Continue reading Day 8

Day 7

This morning we woke up to discover that the guy who had left our dorm room last night had left quite a few goodies lying on his bed - apples, oranges, yoghurts, chorizo (that looked homemade), a very useful tupperware and a blanket. You can’t beat waking up to a pile of freebies! We had… Continue reading Day 7

Day 5

We woke up at 8:30, surprised we’d slept so long after also sleeping a lot of the car journey. We moved along the river to clean our teeth and freshen up in the sunshine, then hopped back over the wall and found a bench to sit on to have some breakfast (carrots, crackers and dark… Continue reading Day 5

Day 4

We’d been careful to set an alarm the night before for 6:30am, but somehow we didn’t wake up until 8:30! Neither of us felt like we had slept much, it had been a cold and uncomfortable night. The park was going to be opening at 9, so we quickly packed up and jumped back over… Continue reading Day 4

Day 3

After a morning tea and chat with our lovely Couchsurfing host, we said our goodbyes and headed to catch a bus to Guildford. We’d picked our destination because it was the furthest we could get with the £20 we’d acquired yesterday and after a quick search online, it seemed like it should be easy to… Continue reading Day 3
