We went to our favorite diving spot, iFach. We thought that it would be a great day for snorkeling. Sunny and warm and no wind.

When we arrived the waves were like 3 meters and we just had to accept the fact that we couldn't get in to the water.

Yesterday we took our van "Styrbjörn" and drove to a city nearby, La Vila Joiosa.

In the centre of the small city we found these pretty houses in different colors. And by the beach we found a perfekt parking spot for the night. Perfekt, we thought! Until we released that a motorcycle club were going to have a party not far from there. And not just any club, it was some suporter club for a less good motorcycle gang... so we changed our minds pretty fast.

Luckily we found another great place not far from there. Very calm and not far from the sea. Until we went for a walk and saw big groups of odd people... so we gave up on La Vila Joiosa and got back to our old spot for the night.

Its not always easy to find great places to stay for the night, even though we have been really lucky... or skilled, to find places were we won't be disturbed and won't disturb other people (or the police).

only life we know free camping stealth vanilla benidorm costa blanca travel europe roadtrip

But sometimes you find just the right spot, everything is just perfect. Like now - a great view, great wether and no people around even though its not in the middle of nowhere. We are close to everything but we are still alone.


This is vanlife at its best!

Today we went to the beach... or since we are actually almost living on the beach we didn't have to go very far.

We jumped up on our bike and went a bit further down the beach, closer to downtown of Benidorm.

And spent a great day in the sun!

We have found the best spot so far. With the best view, right by the beach and not far from the city so we can take our bikes. To wake up with this view right outside the door is pretty amazing.

We also made a friend, invited him for dinner (yes, of course we have bought cat food for all the cats that we meet, always ready). But he preferred to stay under the car than getting inside :)

This place by night is also pretty beautiful :)

only life we know free camping stealth vanilla benidorm costa blanca travel europe roadtrip guadalest

Niklas are finally back here in Spain with me again after some time in Sweden ❤ We took a trip to Guadalest not far from where we are staying right now :) 

it's a small town in the mountains in costa Blanca which is a very popular place for tourists to visit. It's small, really small, with a few cosy streets with shops and restaurants. Here you can visit the, according to themselves, very interesting and amazing miniature museum. We didn't got inside even though they really wanted us to come in, but if you like to see very small things it might be interesting :) but that's not all, there is also a salt and pepper museum, pay 3 euros to see the history of salt. There is also a museum of torture that you can visit if you're in to that kind of things. And there is also a bunch of other museums to visit. I don't know how they manage to fit all of these museums into a village this small ;)

What Guadalest is most known for is this tower on the mountain behind the village. It's an old church and there is not much left of it after an earthquake in 1644, but this tower have been restored.

He told us about the best climbing spots and where to find the best views in costa Blanca.

We thought we were going from the cold winter land in Sweden to a warm and sunny Spain, but I guess we were wrong ;)

only life we know free camping stealth vanilla benidorm costa blanca travel europe roadtrip snow spain 2017

Since we are the way we are, of course we had to visit the beach. It's been 90 years since they had this "much" snow here, maybe we brought it from Sweden?

The locals that we have been speaking to is really surprised, most of them have never seen this before. They think it is terrible and really bad, especially for the tourists.

But we thought it was pretty fun, but after a day with bad whether we are missing the sun again and hoping it will come back soon :)
