Im living my dream vacation. I biked (walked) some of the most beautiful country side ever. Nearly carfree, there was a bike race going on, nearly 100 riders going down hill as I walked up.
I need lower gears on my bike, these hills are for real. A tour guide in Seville warned me about where I was intending to go. I shrugged my shoulders, whatever. He was right, its been tough. Im 57 years old, Im not sure I could do this at 59. I think I made a good choice regarding this adventure, my age & financial situation helped make this happen. On that note, theres lots of people with a lot more money that wouldn’t consider this a holiday.
RIDING FROM PASS TO GRAZALEMA
The views were amazing. I want to back up some, BENAMAHOMA this little forgotten town. I do house & yard maintenance for a job and take care of my house. This town was amazing, all the buildings were painted white, not one crack in the sidewalks. After Morocco, where you had to watch every step for fear of twisting your ankle, this was awesome. I asked if this was a wealthy town, she said NO, they all get together and take pride in there town.
I only speak a little spainish, but enough to fake my way through. I can buy food, get hotel and go camping!
The road up was amazing, to be so free, to feel so healthy & safe. I feel sad that the 2 people who were going come didn’t. One is getting married and the other is hiking the Pacific Crest Trail & scuba diving in Alaska. Both note worthy, but Im happy with my choice.
Im camping in Grazalema, I get up early,which isn’t the norm here. Some restaurants don’t open till 9 pm. My 2 month old american keyboard died. The reason my punctuation is missing or wrong is I have an American apple mini I pad computer with a new european keyboard. Im slowly learning where all the keys are hiding.

I got the flu in Morocco Im finally feeling better. Traveling alone being sick really hits you. I still have to sort out my daily living needs, its one of the toughest parts of traveling alone.
till next time (sooner)
