We are loving the flexibility of being able to venture to different places and having immense choice where we can stay.
Some nights we stay on campsites- this gives us peace of mind when visiting Cities and leaving the dogs for a few hours.
Other nights we will stay at Aires- these are designated motorhome spaces that are either privately owned (like a mini campsite) or municipally owned which are usually unmanned and you buy a parking ticket for the duration of your stay. Some Aires will have all facilities such as fresh water to be able to fill up, toilet disposal and grey water (which is your dirty used water). Other Aires will have limited facilities.
Or in most European countries it is acceptable to ‘wild camp’-which means finding a place to stop without any facilities and are free. So if we wild camp we make sure we have our phones etc charged up, toilet is empty and a full tank of water.
We use a couple of different apps on our iPads which shows us where other people have stayed and a review so we have a good indication on where to stay.
We found a lovely spot on a beach just outside Santa Pola which had glowing reviews. When we arrived we weren’t disappointed, we were able to park right next to the sea.
We had such a peaceful nights sleep and we both woke up feeling refreshed and watched the sunrise over the sea.
Wild Camping works really well with the dogs as we can choose our own space.
