Sierra Nevada

We spent the weekend in the Sierra Nevada. If you haven´t been and you live in a four hour radius, then why not? It is incredible! The girls did a couple of hours of lessons and were away, totally fearless and loving every second of it. They mastered it so quickly and were soon venturing down the slope like pros. It is not cheap though, we managed to spend a lot of money and we stayed in a self catering apartment. I am wondering what we have started though, as they are asking when can they go back for some more practice. I think that a day trip can be doable providing you leave early enough in the morning and that is what we are looking to do before the season ends.

A Belated Happy New Year

It´s been a while since the last post. There hasn´t been a lot going on apart from the obvious Christmas stuff and of course, the rain which is relentless at the moment. Over the Christmas period we managed to snatch three opportunities to go out on our bikes. As soon as the rain stopped the sun came out in full force for the little time it was out. We spent the 6th January up Estepona mountain with friends.

The post Christmas period can drag. This is why it is important to make plans. We have a trip to Sierra Nevada planned soon and don´t forget Semana Blanca is coming up soon for those that live in the Malaga region. This year we want to see more of Spain beyond Andalucia. We plan to do this in the summer by investing in a tent and taking in some of the north and possibly France.
