We set off just after 09:00 hrs from the campsite in Zaragoza for our final big drive down to La Manga. We had the same problem leaving Zaragoza as we did arriving and that was getting lost as our sat nav does not seem to recognise the roads around the centre. We eventually got on our way after I (Dean) became a bit frustrated. Not what you want before a big drive.
The sun was soon up and we were feeling good as we were almost at our final destination. It was a different route to when we came two years ago as we went via Granada to visit the Alhambra Palace before going on to the campsite.
The plan was to stop for a few times to stretch the legs and have a brew but because the roads are so easy to drive on with not much traffic and cruise control set to 56 mph we just plodded on making good progress.
After three stops, 383 miles and seven hours driving we exited the Autovia Cartagena at La Manga Salida 11 and were at our campsite.
The process on arrival is to park up and report to reception to check in where you are then given a pitch preference form to take with you as you walk to the sector you will be staying in. You must then choose three pitches and return back to reception with the form and tell them where you would like to stay. If this is agreed you get back in your motorhome and drive round to your chosen pitch set up and that is you until you leave.
Needless to say we were too tired to do anything that evening other than eat and go to bed.
