We’re here!

3 days by ferry and road – arrived yesterday. Decided to break the journey up – if you’re travelling through Spain there are loads of services on the main E5 route that have hotels – we stopped at Hotel Manzanares – an opportunity to try out our Spanish as no one spoke English which was great practice!

We arrived at El Pino campsite in Torrox Costa yesterday – you can’t book in advance but we managed to get a pitch with electric hook up for €315 for a month – and we can extend as we need to. It does get chilly at night in the tent (well it is January!) so we bought a fan heater today and an electric stove – no point buying gas when we’ve already paid for the electric! We thought it would be better to stay on the coast where it’s a bit warmer as were here in winter – Granada is -6 at night at the moment!

We’ve arranged to meet our solicitor next week to get our NIE’s organised – he charges €50 fir doing all the paperwork – I think it’s worth it as we know it will be done right. Until we have that number we can’t buy a car or open a bank account so the quicker it’s done the better. Time to relax now for a couple of days while we sort out some viewings …
