Day 16 – The Last Day

Spanish hotels seem to be great for late check-out times, this one in Murcia let us stay until midday. We took full advantage of this with a lie-in, a leisurely breakfast, showers and getting all the online stuff done we needed to (checking in for flight, uploading photos to our instagram etc.) whilst we had… Continue reading Day 16 – The Last Day

Day 15

We had a late start today after a difficult night of sleep. I left Ondra sleeping in our cave and went for a wander around on the rocks, finding a few other smaller caves to nose around in. It’s a shame we have to leave so soon (our flight leaves Murcia, 190km away, tomorrow evening)… Continue reading Day 15

Day 14

We had a wonderfully cosy night's sleep in our paradise cave and woke up to the best window ever. It was a bit overcast but the sea looked calmer than yesterday. We went to the swimming spot O found yesterday and reassessed where to jump in and where to climb out. It wasn’t very high… Continue reading Day 14

Day 13

I woke up to an overpowering scent of wild thyme - we were surrounded by plants. Either they’re particularly fragrant in the morning or we were just too tired to notice the night before. We had an apple and peanuts for breakfast, I did some writing and O took some photos, then we packed up… Continue reading Day 13

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
