    Back in Sunny Spain.



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Just got in from even sunnier Morocco,
    Anyone down here?
    I see a few are in Portugal, we don't go there now as we like to swim & much prefer the Med.
    We are slowly wandering up the coast, WC'ing, called in at the free aire recommended by loulou at La Linea to empty & fill up with water.
    Had 3 days at Torreguadiaro but stayed in the town as the beach location was overrun with film crews.
    Now at a favourite little bolt-hole in Malaga.
    Can't decide where to head to next. Maybe Ronda, Antequera or Archidona, want to be where they celebrate Easter week.
    Even the smallest villages put on a spectacular bash, the Spanish really know how to party.
    Britons were wild camping long before campsites, it's a basic human right.

    Having trouble getting out of Malaga, in great position on sea-front, under palm trees full of noisy parrots with clean toilets nearby.
    It's total chaos in town with the Holy Week processions, I like the way the Spanish celebrate, they go to church & then hit the bars & get rat-arsed.
    The crowds here are almost totally Spanish which is refreshing, I heard just one American accent all day yesterday.
    Just been swimming, water temp 19deg, but still felt cold.

    if you are parked up under palm trees with parrots flying in and out I would move if I were you, you just don't know how hard it is to remove their **** from your camper's roof, I had that in Cambrils some years ago, it took me more than a week to remove it.

    I know exactly what you mean.
    Yesterday, about a dozen of the buggers must have dive-bombed the van simultaneously $hitting, it's even on the tyres.
    I'll put up with the problem as it's a great location
    Have to call into the nearest Repsol & hot power wash the van.
    That's when I drag myself away from here!.

    Torrox

    No im not being rude - good Wilding spot at edge of Torrox. That's where we are slightly north of Malaga - staying for a couple of nights. There's a Repsl garage with good van wash and laundrette on 340 as you come up from Malaga.

    We are heading for a WC spot south of Torrox, it's on the dunes behind a black sand beach.
    Don't know the co-ords, the missus saw it as we were heading out of Malaga last year.
    But we've got to tear ourselves away from Malaga first.
    Love to meet up for a beer.

    Still in Malaga, good swimming, great showers & clean toilets, might as well stay here than off roughing it elsewhere.
    We have been watching some of the Holy Week processions.......amazing!
    The religious floats (or Thrones), some weighing up to 5 tonnes are carried by up to 260 bearers.
    It has been quite hot today 29 deg, tomorrow 32 deg, not conducive for travelling, so I will prob stay here for a bit.

    Finally left Malaga, called in at Repsol station at Torre del Mar to wash parrot s**t off van, also did mound of washing at the laundrette.
    Now wilding on the dunes behind a black sand beach at El Morche west of Torrox. Marguerite spotted it driving from Malaga last year.
    A great location, the usual no-camping signs, Guardia & Policia patrol regularly. Fresh water is available from the beach showers & cassettes can be emptied if you've got a strong enough hook to raise a Saneamiento cover.
    Can go on POIs if not already on there.
    Co-ords 36.734545 -3.983053
    With no mountains or high rise monstrosities, can get 12 hours of sunshine here.
