Spain – enjoying the Sierra Espuna

We were very sad to say our goodbyes to all at Camping Sierra Espuna and El Berro.  We had a really amazing stay there and will certainly miss it.  Highlights from the past week include some amazing rides, particularly a day spent with Jan and Chantal exploring a new route through wonderful scenery and taking in some spectacular climbs as well as a (rather sweltering) trip out to the moonscape and jade lake of Barrancos de Gebas; having lunch with friends from the campsite in nearby Alhama de Murcia at a restaurant owned by a friend of Joel’s, who prepared a meal especially for us – each of the 5 courses more wonderful than the last; a day out at the coast, walking on the beach and driving windy roads to remote castles; disturbing more of the shy barbary sheep in the Sierra Espuna regional park; great trail running through the pine forests.

We’ve now headed back to the coast once more and have just set up camp in another park, the Cabo de Gata-Nijar Natural Park.

  1. Good friends and good food and wonderful scenery – such great photos – and that moonscape is extraordinary – certainly out of this world. Enjoy your next stage!

  2. Hello dear Lucy and Leigh, just to tell you that we also enjoyed your stay here in El Berro. We loved our biking trails together, the nice talks we had, the party for your special caravan and of course the nice lunches we had. Happy travellings and see you again ;0) xxx
