What to do with bureaucracy

After some hours looking for a paper, the girls at the reception show us a fun way to solve the bureaucracy problem. We have been told that after seing these images, the spanish government has gone into panic mode and they are preparing a communication campaign so the sheeps keep pasturing.

South Africa was here

Here are some pictures from the last days of the football worldcup, at the beginning of July. We have just received them from fam. Pronk, and because someone here asked for some photos of those days... at last here they are. The final match was followed by almost the complete campsite, including workers ;-)

Survivors in the reception

Here is the reception team this summer 2010. After long discussions for a bigger, smaller, shadower, sunnier, isolated, crowded or whatever place, they wanted to prove that they are still alive and kicking all that moves, so their family stops phoning thinking like they were in Pakistan.

A shadow with a beach

Of the three chiringuitos in the beach in front of us, the further from us is smaller but has an obvious charm. It is also located near the area where dogs are allowed and the kitesurf area is also nearby. From the campsite's door, it is just a 15 minutes walk.

Another beach or How to avoid shopping

Today the tramontana is blowing, and while women will insist that it is a good opportunity for shopping, it is also a great day to look for beaches that are protected from the wind.

You go to Roses, cross the village, then go up the mountains in the natural park 'Cap de Creus' following indicators to the beach 'cala Montjoi' and the famous 'restaurant Bulli' (very good but extremely expensive). Just 1 Km past cala Montjoi, you will find 'cala Calitj√†s', this is a small charming rocky beach, ideal for swimming in clear water. The whole way takes about 30 minutes by car from the campsite, it is not so far but you have to drive slowly because the road is narrow and twisty.

Fortunately everything has a price (2011)

As usual in these days of the year, we publish the prices for next year, 2011. They are available in the 'Prices' section of our website...

The increase is due to several reasons. First, this year 2010 we did not increase prices, but predicted inflation here in spain for the period 2009-2011 is said to be about 2% or more. Second, from the beginning of July 2010, the spanish government has increased the taxes that we have to apply to all the prices, from 7 to 8%. Third, the new swimming pool bring some costs like more water and electricity consumption, as well as hopefully an advantage to a lot of campers here.

Misscamping 2010

Yesterday night a set of brave ladies competed for the misscamping honor. Tipically in a women's play, the animators made them pass some cruel tests, in general practices were unfair... but at the end a lucky girl won ;-) and the rest will have to go to the psychologist to alleviate the trauma.
