Rest and recovery

As we travel, a lot of people ask us “Don’t you get tired of travelling for so long?”  The answer is…sometimes. We realised that the south of Spain would be a really nice place to stop and relax over Easter, so we rented an Airbnb apartment and stayed in one place for the longest time since we had left New Zealand in March 2012.  We spent nearly two weeks here, sleeping, getting over my bad cold,  me working on the blog and Reuben taking on the work projects that he keeps up with on the road.  We went for walks on the beach,  made home made sangria, cooked dinner every night, and even made homemade Cadbury creme eggs (which tasted amazing).  We spent a day shopping for supplies and marvelled at how strange it felt to try on new clothes in a store.  We spent time planning the next part of our trip to Morocco, and we gradually got our energy back, ready to take on the next part of our journey!
