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

Stupid Libraries.

So I only have six minutes left and just wasted a few seconds letting you know, but I need some assistance in getting things off our iPod onto the net. In the last town we were in, I came so close to getting it up only to be thwarted by the only damn cd -burner in the shop being broken. This is the problem: my iPod is mac formatted - the folks at Apple thought it would be hilarious to not include some sort of compatibility between windows and mac versions of iTunes to read the voice memos you record from any computer. If your iPod formatted on a mac (I believe it's HSF +), windows iTunes will tell you to reformat the buggar . And get this, the iPod records voice memos in old school PC style wav files. What the hell. Anyway, I can't test or install things on this library computer, but if someone checking the blog who is tech savvy could find a program to retrieve data from a mac formatted iPod from a windows machine - a program that doesn't use a god damn install

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

Paris here we come!

So not much to update since the last time. I'm trying to think what we even did the past two weeks. Well last weekend was roller derby nationals in Atlanta, GA and is the first time we haven't gone to nationals in...4 years! We have gone the past 4 years so it was a little sad not to be there. However they do stream it live for a small fee so we did that so last weekend lots of roller derby was watched! Luckily it was on the east coast so it was only 6 hours difference so we didn't stay up too too late (Sat I think we got to bed at like 3am) and we got to watch Gotham win again! It was fun watching from the couch, but I much prefer to be there. I mean when I would be yelling at the TV and clapping and cheering when something good happened and it is just not the same when it is just me doing that. The claps echo in the room...Next year is going to be in Milwaukee which I don't really know anything about, but apparently they have a lot of vegan food. We shall see if we ma
