Birthday day out PDF
Freitag, den 18. Mai 2012 um 23:50 Uhr

Not only was today – 18 May 2012 – the day that Facebook shares were put on sale, it was also my birthday. What to do? We decided on a train journey through Secret Andalucía.

Up early we caught the train from Ronda to Algeciras, along the route of Mr Henderson’s railway, as this stretch through the beautiful Guadiaro valley is known. Sir Alexander Henderson was the Scottish railway engineer who built the line at the end of the 19th Century.

After an hour and a half of stunning scenery, we arrived at a rather windy Algeciras. This was my first visit to the deep-sea port and will probably be my last. With five hours to kill before our return train, there really wasn’t enough to do. However, after a stroll round the market, the old part and the shops, we settled down for a leisurely lunch of tapas.

After an equally stunning journey back, seen from the other side of the train, we headed off to Montejaque for drinks with friends…. And more tapas, before returning home – tired but happy.
