Nine days away, whole family and dog, on the road. Confined by COVID-19 to Cádiz province, our neighbours across the border from home in Gibraltar, we decided to – as much as possible – “north, east, south, west” the province.
This set was entirely planned while “on tour”, spending a week travelling around Cádiz province in southern Spain.
There was such a variety of music that caught my ear this last fortnight, and the familiar creative struggle to fit it all together, the doubt that there was anything coherent here, loomed large this time around…
An old family favourite campsite from our camping days, we decided to revisit Tarifa and this site for our first multi-night stay anywhere in our campervan.
Days and days of heavy rain led up to this weekend, and I wanted to make a mix with lots of variety and a sunshine feel to it, not least to keep me moving and warm when spinning it live, outside!
Despite the atrocious weather (rain, wind, floods) we were determined to spend only our second ever night in the campervan, so we left the Strait of Gibraltar in search of less windy climes…
As a cold south-westerly wind swept across Gibraltar, this week’s Balcony Beats braved the outside – but in a break from tradition, today’s picture was not taken on the balcony…
Set off for a single night to test out the campervan, as the restrictions between us and the nearest campsite are now lifted.
As the weather stayed wintery, this week’s Balcony Beats moved around to a slightly more sheltered part of the balcony. The music speaks of warmer climes and better times.
Back at home in Gibraltar, back under lockdown, back on the balcony… new year, same shit.
