On Top of the (Castellonense) World.

Peñagolosa. Highest mountain in Castellón. Second highest mountain in the Valencian Community. 189th highest in Spain... Hmmm, maybe I should stop there?

But before you mock, I'll tell you a little known fact: after Switzerland, Spain is the most mountainous country in Europe! So up we go.

1813 metres might not sound very high.



Especially when you start the climb at the Sant Joan Hermitage (1280m).




But we made it! 




 Now, what's the 188th highest mountain in Spain...?

Fanzara, a small, nondescript town, thirty minutes from the coast in Castellón. Or so it used to be...

The Guardian: Fanzara




 





















And my favourite...


And here's why. Look very carefully...

¿Dónde Estamos? Where Are We? #1

I can feel an 'occasional' posting coming on...

We were out for a walk a day or so ago when we came across this (or these). 


Where are they? And what are they called? 

The first person to email me both correct answers (zenkyumaestro@yahoo.es) will receive an Amazon voucher for a copy of Zen Kyu Maestro: An English Teacher's Spanish Adventure (see below for details).

I'll give a few more clues (and the answers) in the coming days...

¡Suerte!
