• Mini driving on water in Sotogrande

    Mini driving on waterA few days ago, on the weekend of the 21st and 22nd of july you could see something very ridiculous on the water. A Mini Cooper. Yes, the car. It is a kind of advertising or publicity for Mini. So they took a big Jetski and put the car body of a Mini Cooper on top of it. So it looks like there is a Mini driving on water. I found this photos on the spanish blog motorpasion.com because I havn´t taken any photos by myself. The first photo is taken in the port of Sotogrande (Cádiz), driving around. The second and third are in the port of La Duquesa (Málaga). I have read on another blog that this car is driving along the coast until the end of august. So maybe you can see in some other ports or on the beach. (more…)

  • Beaches like in the Carribean

    Beach in Zahara de los AtunesIf you want to see white sandy beaches like in the carribean, you have to visit the coast of Cadiz. Try the beaches at Tarifa, Barbate, Conil de la Frontera or Chiclana de la Frontera. But one of the best beaches is in the small town of Zahara de los Atunes. In the southeast of the town you have a big beach which is normally not that full like other beaches on the coast. Like you can see it on the picture you have wide sandy beaches and fantastic blue water. You won´t realise that you are in Spain instead of the carribean. If you want to enjoy the sun and the nice warm weather in august try it there.

  • San Juan in Sabinillas 2007

    San Juan 2007 in SabinillasThat was this years San Juan. After I expected some groups for a concert like Danza Invisible and Ariel Rot, they didn’t appear. So the good concerts were cancelled and there was only an orchestra. This years theme was a Medieval Castle, very first line beach, 8 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, massive swimming pool to the rear, big garden (without flowers), stables, security guard on some towers around, underfloor heating. And this nice castle was burned down last saturday at 12 o’clock midnight. What a shame. But it was a nice, big and warm fire with a fantastic firework. And the nice thing was, you could see the next bonfire on the beach of Casares.

  • Concerts in august in Manilva

    Antonio OrozcoSo that I am writing in English I am not sure if there is anybody out there who is reading my blog and who is interested in Spanish music. But I think, talking about Spain, you have to be interested in the Spanish music as well. So here are some interesting concerts which are in my hometown Sabinillas or let’s say Manilva in august, quite big concerts. The first two concerts from Antonio Orozco and from Soraya Arnelas from the 4th Operación Triunfo are in the “feria de Manilva”, so I think they are for free. The other two concerts are just big concerts in the football ground in Manilva. So august is getting hot in concerts.  (more…)

  • San Juan with Danza Invisible in Sabinillas

    San Juan 2006 in SabinillasSan Juan is held each year on the night of the 23rd of June to the 24th (Dia de San Juan). It’s the welcome to summer and its celebration takes place during the shortest night of the year. I have seen it last year in Sabinillas, but in many towns, cities or villages on the coast is the same procedure. In Sabinillas a huge tableau is constructed on the beach a few days before the event. It is a work of art and every year is a different theme. Last year you could see some big buildings from New York with figures from Superman, King Kong on the Empire State Building, The Mask and Marilyn Monroe. (more…)
