'Explore' Andalucia

Exotic flower Canillas village

The walking club from Hunterston were off to sunny Spain for a weeks walking in Andalicia, Anne and I were joining them. We were centred in the pretty village of Canillas de Albaida near Competa in a lovely hotel Posada la Plaza all organised by 'Explore' holidays and led by our lovely natured guide Sarah from Califorinia.
Lovely area for walks, day 1 was two easyish walks from the village and lunch at the Wine museum in Competa. Day 2 a lovely walk to Salares village, day 3 was on part of the ancient silk route. Gradually the weeks walks built up to the last day up Cerro Lucero 1779m high with a wonderful very steep rocky zig zag track to the top and of course fabulous views.

Wonderful week of walking and the food was absolutely fabulous, Gustavos or host was quite a character. He came on some of the walks sporting a cowboy hat and when he learned Morris was a keen tennis player he challenged him to the local game, a bit of a mix of tennis and squash, of course Gustavos won much to Gustavos's delight.
