Livin The Dream in Orgiva 🙂
Monday 19th June – Monday 26th
We are really settling into our new spot now, its really amazing here.. 😉 We have been very lucky again 🙂 The guy who owns this bit of land has been here for about 20 years and is really amazin. He has really sorted us out and we are here till October/November. He is currently back in England to play a few gigs including Glastonbury ! so we are looking after his garden for him for a few weeks 🙂
This is our new backdoor 🙂
It is very peaceful and very warm here..about 34 degrees most days.we had a heatwave for a couple of days last week where it was in the forties…Wow that was a bit crazy but we dealt with it…apparently it will be getting that hot in the next couple of months !!
Ruth has got her vegetable patch happening now 🙂 Its looking a bit Mad Max with the motorbike in the background 🙂
The big news is wee have a new puppy called Rogue 🙂 Someone had abandoned him in Orgiva. He is amazing and he has settled in no problem.
He has already started making new friends with the many dogs already here. 🙂 This is him with our new neighbors dogs.:)
This is us on our walk up the mountain to the Spring to get water ! We usually have a 40ltr water container on wheels which is pretty decent but pretty heavy!
More Coming Soon.. Peace.
Orgiva – Los Cigaronnes – Monday 8th May – This really is a beautiful place to live, surrounded by the lush Alpujarra Mountains with a river flowing by from two dams further up the mountain. You also have a great view of Orgiva over in the valley.
From the road you can barely tell anyone is living here but when you squeeze past the massive Canya plants you will find cool houses and trucks everywhere 🙂
This is a community that has been here for a long time also and many of the people here now own there bits of land here. This is a very peaceful place and all the locals are very friendly 🙂 Hola 🙂
Unlike Beneficio this is not somewhere you will see many tourists walking about which is cool but all the people here are very welcoming to random people appearing with a big truck 🙂
This wasn’t meant to be our destination but some how we ended up here kinda by accident. 🙂 We have been very lucky again just by meetin the right person at the right time and we have now been introduced to a great couple who are trying to help us find somewhere permanent to park-up for the rest of the summertime. For now we are parked on there land at the back of there house next to the road.
Its a couple of weeks later now and we have had no luck finding a place with water and that is accessible by the truck !! Most of these types of places have roads which are too small for us. !! We had a few possibles but they never happened in the end. Now we have moved the truck further into our neighbors land away from the road it is much better 🙂
We are now a couple of weeks later again and its June. Scorchio !! We have met loads of nice people now and we have found someone who is up for us parking on his land till October and its just further up the track here. 🙂 There is a great water supply for farming and we have found out there is a natural Spring for drinking water 🙂 Only thing is it is up the mountain a bit !
