I can’t sing or paint, but I do enjoy writing.  This is something you can do wherever you are, on the beach, waiting at airports, or on vacation with the family when I am up and about hours before they are. 

Writing protects me from a feeling of futility, so I alwa...

Malaga used to be ´an airport´where you hired a car and left as quickly as possible to head for the Costa del Sol or the Costa de la Luz or – for the travellers amongst the tourists - to Ronda and   the route of the white villages  to take you down to the coast.  This...

Yes, Martina and I are ‘addicted´.  This is our fourth tour in its present form, being seven of us (this year only six, one had to drop out) aged between 40 (Martina is the youngest) and 80 (Zoë is the oldest), travelling in two four wheel drives always with our same t...

The years seem to  pass ever quicker and we are again approaching the Season of the Summer Stress (I blogged about this last  year!). 

 

You feel it ‘in the air’ – the increasing traffic, the pressure to get a table at a restaurant, the crescendo of noise in ge...

Nowhere could be better for this ‘occupation’ than Tarifa with its mix of locals, ages, expats and immigrants.  It is a colourful scenario, to say the least, with equal doses of elegance, attempted elegance, over-dressed and under-dressed !

Martina and I had not been for some while, so took the opportunity  to go across to Tangier together with Vincy and Suzanne, the two new members of the Dar Cilla team who will be assisting Martina this summer.
