Southern Europe has different temperatures than we are usually used to during wintertime. Among European retired people – mainly German and French with RVs, Southern Spain is a popular destination- as well as for temporary dropouts. Unfortunately, winter has hit hard and so we were forced to move on to gentler scenery.
Crossing the Street of Gibraltar not only means changing the continent, but plunging into another world unfamiliar and new to us. Not mastering the Arabic language, we are trying French and English bits to communicate. People are always very friendly to help us.
The landscape has a great variety, the vastness is very impressing. We see the azure sea and rough cliffs, blue sky, juicy green and red fertile soil, the ever-changing mountains and the beginning desert. From Tangier Med we have enjoyed the coastal Mediterranean road up to the Algerian border, going south we encountered a heavy desert storm with little sight and strong winds, sand getting in everywhere. We finally made it to a wind save place and hope for a clear blue sky the next day.
