    We have worked our way down Spain and have had a very enjoyable 9 weeks at Zahora but I, not Lynda, have got itchy feet.

    The question is do we head to Sevilla and on to The Algarve or work our way back up Spain bearing in mind we do not want to cross the French border until mid March

    I might add we think that Malaga and Benidorm is not our scene.

    Check out Bolnuevo a good campsite on the beach with an old fishing village. Just south of Mazaron. Port de Mazaron is a nice town which is a short bus ride away. I can recommend Bolnuevo personally.

    Cordoba is worth a good look. You have to stand in the grand Mosque to appreciate the sheer scale of it. We didn't stop but saw a smart aire within walking distance of the old town.

    If you can stand the isolation of Zahora for 7 weeks you certainly would find Benidorm somewhat frisky.

    After Cordoba there is a route to Toledo and Aranjuez..

    Toledo's fab. So is Granada. So is Avila. So are shedloads of other places! Playa de Aro used to be and so was Magaluf at one time - but you and places change, so go anywhere the road takes you and make the most of where ever that is!

    Just bear in mind that they have had snow in and around the Albecete area - was told earlier today and it was a decent amount

    Have you ever been to Benidorm and visited Albir Altir, Quadalest, Calpe, Alicante etc etc. Something for everyone.
