Spain 2006: A holiday in Granada including some skiing on the Sierra Nevada.

Spain 2007: A holiday with some exploring by car.

Spain 2014: An initially unplanned overnight in Madrid on the way SOUTH. They changed my flights so I had a bit of time to look round Madrid.

Gibraltar 2018: I needed a break and some sun so I went to Gibraltar for a few days. I was amazed at how far I walked day after day without suffering. While there I got an email from my climbing club saying a member’s friend was taking a tall ship round Svalbard at quite a reasonable rate and as I wanted to do that I rashly signed myself up.
