My Week in Review to 24th Dec 2017

We're on a beautiful campsite in Denia, Spain at the moment. It's called Camping Los Pinos. There are large pitches under loads or mature trees - pines obviously, as well as palm trees and (possibly) beech trees. A pair of red squirrels run around most days showing off how good they are at flinging themselves from branch to branch! We can see the sea from our pitch and walk along the promenade most days. The other campers are almost entirely non-Spanish which is a bit odd. We are a mix of mostly Brits, Dutch, Germans and French. The facilities are good and the staff friendly and, after 7 nights, the price has dropped to just €12.50 a night including electricity.

On the downside, our mobile wifi gadget doesn't work here - presumably because the Montgo mountain that towers over the campsite is blocking its signal - and the campsite wifi, while free, is pretty useless for most of the day. Consequently I've been concentrating on keeping Artisan Rainbow and Literary Flits going and rather neglecting posting over here. Oops! Fortunately we've not been doing much to tell you all about anyway!


We have been cycling and had a walk up over the hill towards Xabia. We reckon we could walk all the way there, have ourselves a lunch and walk back so we're looking forward to doing that between Christmas and New Year. In fact, having driven the winding road to Xabia on Wednesday, it might almost be quicker to walk! We camped in Xabia three winters ago so it was fun to walk around again and reminisce. The excellent Indian grocer is still in the Arenal part of town so we stocked up on spices. Then we walked to the beachfront and treated ourselves to coffee und kuchen at the Austrian Cafe. It was almost nothing like being back in Vienna but very good all the same!

Wednesday evening saw us eating out again - twice in one day and we were out after dark! The Indian Palace restaurant was almost deserted apart from us, but the food was absolutely delicious. If you're ever in Denia, I am happy to recommend it to you.


Merry Christmas!
