Costa Blanca #3, Spain 11/13

December 12, 2013

Escaping from the flock of Snowbirds and the super resort city of Benidorm, we arrived in Jávea (Xabia) by evening and rather than search for a campground—that turned out to be closed for the winter—we found safe parking on the rocky coast. Just about to prepare dinner, the young Brit Oliver we had met earlier stopped by with his girlfriend Anastasia and their little girl Anneliese. We presented her with a cozy polar bear named Bertrand, a token from the Espar Company who provides our diesel heaters.

Soon after they left, the Austrian Schebesta family stopped to admire the truck and in short order invited us to park in front of their home where we had access to water, internet and electrical power. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them and cannot thank them enough for their spontaneous hospitality.

Monty spoke perfectly English and had a thousand questions about our truck.

A joint dinner with the Schebesta family was a great way to become instant friends!
