This journey was another five to six hours but a bit more pleasurable as there were less mountains to encounter. All along the route we kept seeing massive Bulls in the fields, mixed in with the beautiful scenery.
The site at Aranjuez was excellent, with massive pitches and loads of birds flying around. If we hadn’t decided to head for Granada the next day we would have been more than happy to stay here for a couple of days.
However, we did waste two hours of our lives trying to get the satellite TV to work. We were able to lock onto the internet (even then we didn’t think to actually use it!) but then spent ages trying to get the TV locked on…only to discover that we’re well out of the range for any UK television apart from SKY NEWS. This we only discovered after finally ringing VanBitz in the UK who patiently explained everything – what a pair of muppets!
As we’d established it wasn’t each other’s fault we both relaxed a bit, drank a couple of glasses of beer and watched some more Gavin & Stacey… In the morning we got chatting to the English couple opposite us, who it transpired had visited the Hereford site this year to see friends. They used to live in Hereford but now full-time in the ‘van and are over here for six months. When we asked them where they’re off to it so happens they’ll be at La Manga when we’re there so we’ll try and catch up with them for a drink or two! ‘Tis a small world.
