Torredonjimento to Cazorla

Torredonjimento to Cazorla

I’ve now left the Vias Verdes (green-ways) and into the metropolis 🏢 of Jaen. Anything larger than a village is a metropolis to me! I enter the metropolis and leave the metropolis ASAP. Obviously after a un café! The nights wild 🏕️ camping took some finding as everywhere was hilly 🗻 Then, when there were no hills, there were high fences … with barking dogs 🐕 I ultimately secured a spot on a hill-side near Pegalajar. It took some effort to get…

La Guijarrosa to Torredonjimento

La Guijarrosa to Torredonjimento

After my hearty 💗 meal last night, I set off with renewed vigor. Well, I do every day on my bicycle!  Heading towards the town of Puente Genil. This provides a chance to refresh my stores. I’m dragging out the day as I wish not to hit the green-way until I’ve obtained a adequate supply of water. Then, I can set camp for the night as I’ve no guarantee where I’ll encounter water on the trail next. I call into the…

Ronda to La Guijarrosa

Ronda to La Guijarrosa

On leaving Ronda, I promptly get as far as the McDonalds 🍔 for the customary McBreakie! Second breakfast, though. It’s far tastier than the ordinary porridge I generally have. Absolutely, the porridge will be better for me! I pass through Setenil. Houses built into the rock face. Cool! Literally! I struggle once again to find a wild camping spot. Ultimately pushed up a near vertical hill on an olive 🥗 plantation. It was the only place that possessed any kind of access. I could hear plantation workers in the distance. I headed in the opposing direction. Finding a secluded gully of kind. I checked my perimeter and couldn’t see how anyone could see me 👀, with no discernible paths nearby. It would be dark in two hours. As the…

Alcalá de los Gazules to Ronda

Alcalá de los Gazules to Ronda

The day started drizzly ⛆ But then we’re climbing and Andalucia is known to be a tad wet at times! Come to that, it’s not known for its flatness either! Roads again very quiet. April is definitely not tourist season, so a big plus. Good thing I’m not a tourist! The nights wild camping 🏕️ was amongst numbered-cork-trees. I’ve never seen cork trees before unless attached to the end of a wine bottle! I say numbered, because they had numbers painted…

Tarifa to Alcalá de los Gazules

Tarifa to Alcalá de los Gazules

Arriving in Spain 🇪🇸 and contented with been back on European soil! Why? Well, it may not contain as many nappies floating in water courses as the country 🇲🇦 across the Strait of Gibraltar! And perhaps, not likely to have a national pastime of ‘stone throwing’! We hope! We had borne what is classed as a fast ferry ⛴️ which obviously went slow! But that’s not a problem, why hurry? Not likely to be completing the crossing again! We hope! The next few nights are spent…
