5 mile hike to a 9th century castle
Before we left Ubeda, there was one thing we wanted to do. And that was to visit the Sinagoga Del Agua. (Synagogue of the Water). Not that we have a ton of interest in Jewish history, but the story here is quite fascinating. Back in 2007, a property develop...

First time emptying the tanks...
Everybody knows that the least fun part of the motorhome lifestyle is emptying the holding tanks. Well over here in Europe, it's even less fun! First of all, no campgrounds or aires (we explained yesterday  what an aire is) have sewer hookups. And the motor...

Bondocking in Spain...never saw another vehicle the whole time
When we were up at the castle the day  before, we had seen a dam in the distance. So when we woke up yesterday morning, we drove over there thinking there might be a park or something. There wasn't, but there was a level parking area so we stopped there for...

Our first night boondocking in Spain!
We moved all of our stuff into Louis the motorhome yesterday morning. Not that we have that much stuff...we actually have very little stuff! One trip for our bags, and then another trip for the food. Did a walkaround inspection, then hopped in the driver's ...

Our home for the next two months...
Yesterday was a gorgeous sunny day, with the temperature around 17C (63F) and no wind to speak of. We relaxed for much of the morning and made ourselves a nice ham and egg breakfast before heading out on foot to explore. The apartment we're staying in is lo...

Barcelona was great!
Hopped on the train again to downtown Barcelona yesterday morning. The T-10 metro transportation pass has really been handy for us. For €9.95 ($14.50 CAD, $10.50 USD) you get 10 trips on the local transportation, and it includes the airport train. Our ten t...

A beautiful day exploring Ubeda, Spain.
Yesterday morning's project was to hook up our new inverter. Louis isn't really really set up for boondocking (wild camping) the way we like to. They have a single marine style deep cycle 12v battery for the house, and of course a normal vehicle battery for...

Free overnight motorhome parking...what a great concept!
There is a great system of free motorhome parking in Europe. The "Aire" system began in France, and has slowly expanded throughout Europe, and even into the UK. The word "aire" means area in French. These free motorhome stopovers are called "Aire de Service...

No idea where we'll end up tonight, just the way we like it!
No problems our first night in the motorhome. It doesn't get light until  almost 8:00am here in southern Spain, so we find ourselves sleeping in a little bit. Plus, we don't put any heat on, so it's a little chilly inside the motorhome at that hour as well....

We're hitting the road this morning!
Holy cow, we slept in yesterday morning. It was after 8:30am when we woke up! That sure doesn't happen very often. Did lots of online research yesterday morning because when we hit the road we won't have an unlimited source of internet any more. We'll have ...

A very smooth travel day...and we met Louis!
Yesterday was a travel day, but because we pre-planned a lot, everything went smoothly. Our motorhome exchange friends Tana and Graham live in Torrevieja, Spain. They are an expat British couple who have an apartment in Torrevieja, but also a small motorhom...

Mystery solved!
Yesterday, we hopped on the train to downtown Barcelona. It's only about 20 minutes from where we are staying here at Badalona. We only have to take the one train from Badalona station to the Clot-Arago station at a cost of 1 euro ($1.45 CAD, $1.10 USD) eac...
