  • 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 […]

  • Hanging around in Lisbon

    Hanging around in Lisbon

    For us, Lisbon has everything we’re looking for in a big city. We especially enjoyed the urban areas, with bars, restaurants, and small design shops. The old part of town is also super charming to walk around in, so colorful and romantic. Next time we’ll bring surfboards and check out all the spots just a […]

  • Portugal – The Algarve Coastline

    Portugal – The Algarve Coastline

    Portugal was a new country for both of us, hence a must to visit when we’re this close. We didn’t plan to stay in Portugal too long, so we decided to skip climbing to get some rest and be 100% tourists for some weeks. First stop after crossing the border from Spain was the beautiful […]

  • 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 […]
