Jalon, Santa Pola and Torrevieja

We left the comfort of the campsite for a small aire (car park actually) for the pricey sum of €3/night and very good it turned out, in the centre of Jalon, bringing in the New Year with hill walking Hudson style. We parted company after a few days and headed of to Santa Pola then Torrevieja to meet up with Derrick and Rhian at their bar the “C Breeze”, Guinness and good food made for a great night catching up with old friends.

Out of the villages and pubs and into the vast grape growing steps of the hills.
