Campervan Adventures in Spain & Portugal: Beas de Granada hike

Our first day in Spain we got up bright and early to hike the Beas de Granada hike. The start was about a 10 minute walk down the road from our campsite to Beas de Granada and from there walk through the hills to Granada. 




We were up so early we barely saw any people at first and the hike was beautiful!











We did end up seeing a lot of mountain bikers later on the trail and everyone was so nice and no one almost ran us over (which has definitely happened in other places where hikers and bikers are on the same trails)! All the bikers made sure that everyone saw us and said hello or waved as they went by. 

The hike was so nice, 16 km, but I was so glad we were up early as it was so hot by the end! And there was very little shade on the trail!

Once we got to Granada we wandered through town a bit, first walking by Alhambra 






Then through town (which I was dying because it was so so hot so I didn't take many photos)

Once we got back to camp we got some cold drinks at the restaurant and relaxed. It was such a nice day, but man is that sun hot. It only got up to 27C, but in the sun it was way too much for me. When I think of Granada I think a burning inferno!. 

20.44km walked, 53 flights

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Final Thoughts

That is it for our Iceland adventures! I wanted to post one last wrap up just to say a few things I didn't put elsewhere, or organize my overall thoughts in one place. 

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Ferry home - Tórshavn

The boat home was just as smooth and uneventful as the ride to Iceland. We left Iceland at 8pm Wed, Thurs at 3pm we arrive in Tórshavn and had a few hours to wander around, then back to the boat for the night, Friday was at sea, and Saturday we arrived in Hirtshals at 11am. 

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g
