At Estacion in Ferrol

Finally we arrive at Ferrol and are grateful to meet Pablo finally! Pablo works in the Navy and was currently on his holidays and had invited us to come and stay with him in Cedeira, northern Spain. He and Lauro have been mates for awhile on TB and he was keen to show us around his beautiful town. We felt soo lucky!

Alex, Ruby and I got in his car, while Ben, Lori and Lauro got in a car with Pablos lovely father, to drive us to Cedeira. The first thing we noticed was that our highspeed trip to Cedeira was to the soundtrack of Wolfmother! Couldnt fault that choice. Pablo sped through the valleys overlooking bays and harbours, Ruby and I fearfully clenching hands in the backseat.

Ben, Lori, myself, Pablo, Ruby & Alex with Food!!
He drove his lil Peugot so fast but seemed to have such good control of the vehicle. He drove us around to get a nice view of the town before taking us to his family home. His fathers car with the rest of the crew arrived shortly, after an equally frightening car ride.

We were supposed to be roughing it, sleeping at Pablos family orchard where they have a little hut. But we were invited to use the two bedrooms on the second floor, of their gorgeous 4floor house. After our exhausting night and continous travel we were stoked at getting beds for the night. That suited me fine!! Our first destination though, was for food. I hadn't eaten anything on the supra bus as they didn't offer anything vegetarian, and poor Lauro who had eaten still seemed on the point of starvation.

We went to a supermarket and loaded up on items  to make a vegie pasta bake!! Stoked, they also sold my fave european beer - desperados, made with a shot of tequilla & lime!! So we got our goods and went back to Pablos house to cook up our pasta bake.

Checkin out the area.
Well it was mainly Lori and I doin the work and cooking, the others just criticsized. Although I made Alex cut the onions when I couldn't see what I was doin with the knife anymore, due to my constant crying. Hate onions!

After we'd eaten, and the boys did the cleaning, we met Pablos lovely, authentic spanish Mama. She was a little unimpressed that we knew little to no Spanish, except for Lauro. And that we had taken over her kitchen and were doing the washing up!! Apparenlty that was  her job but we insisted we'd made the mess, so we'd clean up. We just got a headshake and eyeroll to that! After we'd finished we cracked a few beers and headed to an area of the bay for a swim. Pablo jumped straight in, Ben tried and cut his nose somehow.. we still haven't worked that one out! Lori was keen to get in but Alex had to throw Ruby in before getting in himself.

Us senoritas!
Lauro in his lil cosie also went for a dip. The water reminded  me of Koombana bay,  a smelly lil bay  in Bunbury, so I wasn't too keen to get in. I sat and watched while I finished my beer.

After the dip, Pablo took us for a walk around the area to see the habour and up to the hut. He has the cutest dogs! Then we went to a little bar for a round of beers before deciding that we'd go on to another saloon bar in the industrial area of Cedeira to play pool and have a few drinks. Well this bar we went to was pretty damn cool. Tequille and lemonade - free pour might I add, only 3.50euro! Score. And by free pour I mean about half a glass of tequilla topped off with lemonade!! Lovin it! We drank, played some pool. I was so close to winning many a time but no cigar. Playin Alex at one point where I was set to win I had a tricky ball, and being cocky and a lil drunk, tried to hit it with me left hand.

Sinkin a ball lefthanded had never felt so good!
Sunk the bloody thing and all!! Was pretty impressed and gobsmacked. Still didn't win the game though. Towards 1am I was feeling the combination of no sleep in 24+ hours and the extra large tequillas. I was getting slightly hysterical. So I begged leave and in two car trips we got back to Pablos house and crashed! The boys who were still bouncing off the walls decided to sleep in the hut. Not til the next morning did I realise they'd  nicked my bikini top and taken it with them. Bunch of perves. It was going to be an interesting holiday.
