Who are we?
We are both "foreigners": (After all, isn‘t everybody on this planet a foreigner - almost everywhere!?)
- originally from the south of Spain, Andalucia (but with roots even more south).

This means that you cannot drive around the coast; you'll always have to come back to the main road to get to the next village.
