Little Gibraltar


The Fredlees started their day with a refreshing dip in L&F’s pool.
Then after an el fresco breakfast, a lazy morning and afternoon around the pool and an el fresco lunch, L. gave us a sight seeing tour of Calpe village and beaches at dusk.
Calpe means little Gibralter.
We then headed through winding hill top roads to the picturesque artists village of Altea, with winding steep cobbled streets, wandering minstrels and arty-crafty boutiques, where F. is taking a course in marquette building. Fantastic views of the coastline below, as the sun set over the skyline of Benidorm in the distance
Another unforgettable day in Little Gibralter!




Pamplona, dag 2

After a fabulous drive through the foot hills of the Pyrenees we arrived in Pamplona -Iruna- Spain.
Hans booked a hotel- whilst sitting in the car on a steep side street in Pamplona, via mobile and internet thingys- and 20 mins later the Fredlee’s were in their hotel room near the famous bull fighting arena.
It was hot but not as humid as in Bordeaux!
….but Mrs Fredlee bought a real spanish fan as in France we saw that all the young girls had one!!

We sat in cafe Iruna in a square in the middle of the old city and had cerveza and tapas! Delicious! and the waiter – who was waiting on the whole terrace on his own – was great and didn’t charge us for a red wine!

As the sun went down and the lamp lights came on, the afternoons sleepy city bars and streets came alive with masses of people of all ages enjoying the cool evening breeze!

Pamplona has wonderful colourful old shuttered buildings with ornate balconys and sloping tiled roofs, fabulous bars and restaurants and a great atmosphere!
But we didn’t see one bull!

The ones that got away…

In de vier weken die de bestraling duurde, maakte ik ongeveer 1600 foto’s van Linda. Het begon de eerste dag spontaan – ik heb mijn camera altijd bij me tenslotte – en ik wilde de opluchting na de bestraling vastleggen. Gewoon één keer een foto in de metro, terug, op weg naar huis. Maar de volgende dag waren we het er bijna automatisch samen over eens: elke dag een foto van na de bestraling voor op het weblog.

In the four weeks that the radiotherapy treatment took, I took around 1600 photos of Linda. It begun spontaneously on the first day – I always have my camera with me – and I wanted to capture the relief after the radiotherapy treatment. Just that first time in the metro, on the return journey, on the way home. But the next day we almost automatically agreed: every day a photo after the radiotherapy treatment for our Weblog.
