Shaun has run the Expat in Mazarrón YouTube channel since arriving in Spain in 2015. It’s all about Shaun living in Camposol; where he lives, places of interest, property, going out walking and many more things about Spain. He has set up a group called Camposol Explorers which is about going out exploring once a month in the Murcia Region. At the moment the group is full, but leave your details and if a space becomes available you will be contacted.

Our December outing was to go to the Badlands to a viewing point overlooking the reservoir, but with forecast of rain it would have made the walk dangerous, so it was cancelled and arrangements were made so everybody made their way to the Hotel Mariposa for a ChristmasDinner. For those in the group who didn’t know the way, we met outside my house for the drive there. 

As it was Christmas, I had asked the group to dress up a bit and everybody got into the swing for Christmas. We first had drinks and then got seated for the meal. Our hostess Lucy, who was 8 months pregnant, did an amazing job serving us all and the cooks did us a wonderful meal. My wife did Secret Santa, which was a lot of fun, with small gifts, sweets, wine and some soap! We spent all afternoon there and really enjoyed our ChristmasDinner

Next year’s outings start in February when we are visiting Cartagena, visiting the Army Museum, a park, part of the Roman fortifications of Cartagena and San Francisco Park.

Please check out this outing and past outings on my YouTube channel Expat in Mazarrón and for up-to-date videos and new places to explore in 2023 on Camposol Explorers YouTube channel.
