    Game of Thrones vibes in Girona

    After our month in Siurana, it was time to leave Spain and slowly begin our return back to Norway. Our next big plan was Fontainebleau in France, just an hour outside of Paris. But first, a pitstop in Girona on the Costa Brava coast, a region of Catalonia in northeastern Spain. Girona is known for […]

  • Climbing in Siurana

    Climbing in Siurana

    Siurana is a small village in Catalonia situated on a cliff’s edge in the Tarragona mountains. The view is just spectacular, not to mention the limestone cliffs, which makes Siurana a climber’s paradise. It’s understandable that this place has been one of the world’s best climbing crags for decades. Here you can watch some of […]

  • Back in Spain – Plasencia, Bullas /Mula & Finestrat

    Back in Spain – Plasencia, Bullas /Mula & Finestrat

    Our original plan after Lisbon was to drive back to Spain and drive the whole way to Siurana, a climbing paradise a couple of hours from Barcelona. After some windy and chilly weeks in Portugal, and minus degrees during the night just outside Madrid, we decided on a little detour back to warmer areas in […]

  • Bolonia – White sand dunes & bouldering

    Bolonia – White sand dunes & bouldering

    One of the most beautiful places on earth? At least another little paradise, also in the municipality of Tarifa. Bolonia is most known for the white sandy beach with fantastic dunes, and some well kept Roman ruins. It’s also possible to drive to the top of the hill and enjoy a spectacular view of the sea and the beach. Here you can also find the big bouldering area! We didn’t know anything about the […]

  • Tarifa – A little paradise

    Tarifa – A little paradise

    During our six months of traveling in Europe, we have visited so many places with the potential to be our favorite, Tarifa is probably our winner so far. We love the beautiful and wild landscape you meet just after driving an hour from busy Marbella. And the white beaches packed with kiters, active people and […]

  • Christmas in Costa del Sol

    Christmas in Costa del Sol

    After traveling for nearly five months, Christmas was coming up, and we had to decide whether to take a plane back to Norway or stay to celebrate Christmas in Spain. We decided to save money and the environment and celebrate it together in the Airstream. Even though we missed our family and friends during the […]

  • Climbing Costa del Sol – El Chorro, Mijas & Marbella

    Climbing Costa del Sol – El Chorro, Mijas & Marbella

    After spending some weeks with fantastic climbing in Costa Blanca, we were psyched to see what Costa del Sol had to offer. The only thing we knew was that El Chorro is in this region, the crag almost everyone we’ve met has talked about. Finding a guidebook for the climbing though seemed almost impossible. The […]

  • A pit stop in Balerma

    A pit stop in Balerma

    With Christmas coming up fast it was time to leave Costa Blanca and head to Costa del Sol and Marbella. We had decided to celebrate Christmas in Marbella together with our climbing friends Chris & Dick and also to meet some of Miriam’s family. The drive to Marbella was too far, so we had to […]

  • Sunny Days in Costa Blanca

    Sunny Days in Costa Blanca

    Our original plan after Albarracín was to get south and to climb in the Andalucia area. Only with a few quick stops on the way. The day before leaving, we changed our mind and decided to spend a couple of weeks climbing in Costa Blanca. Without regrets, we could have stayed for much longer! We […]

  • Albarracín Bouldering

    Albarracín Bouldering

    Albarracín, also known as the «Spanish Fontainebleau», is situated at an altitude of over 1000m above sea level, offering fantastic bouldering on sandstone blocks. There are such a variety of problems to climb on the whole grade range, from quality slabs, overhanging walls on crimps, to huge roofs. The village is not far from Madrid […]
