Hiking in Summer


I got a visitor! My best friend Marina came to visit me. She flew from Salzburg to Valencia and arrived at midnight at my house. I was checking her flight on Flight Radar 24 (https://www.flightradar24.com) the whole time. It’s great because you see where exactly the plane is right now and at what time it lands.

We only had 2 full days together. It’s not a lot of time but it definitely was a great weekend. On Saturday we went to the mountain called Peñón de Ifach in the city of Calpe. It’s 1 hour walking to the top and the view is amaaaazing. It was already my third time going up there and I am always impressed by the view.




We got up at 6:30 in the morning because it is a 1,5 hour car drive to Calpe and now in summer it’s better to go up early. There are no trees on the way up, only rocks so you are in the sun almost all the time. Now in summer its extremely hot here in Spain so better get up early and don’t forget to use sun screen 😛


After that we went to the city “Javea”. It’s famous for its beautiful beaches. We wanted to go to the beach of “Granadella” but there were so many people it was not possible. So we went to another beach called “Cala Barraca”. There were also sooo many people. I hate crowded places. We spent there around 2 hours and then went back home because we had to go to a birthday dinner of a friend. Next time I go to Javea will definitely NOT be in July or August…but I will definitely go back because the beaches really are beautiful.
