Où est la plume de ma tante?

We left Spain a day earlier than planned, because of the forecast snow in the Pyrenees, and did a long (400 miles) run from Valencia Camper Park to Aire-sur-L’Adour, through the Somport tunnel. L’Aire sur L’Adour is a small town

Easter in Spain

We had a sunny final week at Los Alcázares; it got a little busier as a few Spanish pitched up for the Easter holidays. We spotted these Andalusians trotting through the shallows on the way to coffee one morning (us,

Time to Move On

After a couple of weeks at Camping Marjal it is time for a change of scenery and we are heading for Cartagena. We enjoyed our time here, with some good walks around the local nature reserve. A few days after

Elvis is Alive

Thursday in southern France was still a bit chilly and we decamped early for the cross-Spain leg. Its easy driving on the largely empty roads which only get busy round the big cities. We crossed Spain in a blur of

Sword Beach to Hendaye Plage

On Tuesday we woke to a chilly 2 deg C in Ouistreham and after a brief but bracing walk on Sword beach, (one of the the D-day landing beaches, just by the aire) set off south. We landed at the

Seagulls Flying Backwards Today

After a great Christmas we are the road again. Storm Imogen chased us down the M6 and over the channel. Penny’s favourite seat….best used when I’m not driving. We stopped at Port Solent en route…masses of free motorhome parking…to give

Córdoba

We took the bus from La Campiña to Cordoba (€4 each, 45 minutes) while Rick very kindly looked after the Kray twins. Time was limited so we took a taxi from the bus station to the Calahorrra tower, which lies

For Whom the Bell Tolls

Following in the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway, Orson Welles, Tennyson and a few other tourists, we have just spent four days in Ronda…an amazing town perched on top of sheer cliffs, deep in Andalucia. We stayed at Camping El Sur,

On the Road Again…..Lorca

After a few great weeks at Marjal we have moved on; Mavis was getting itchy wheels. We spent last night at La Torrecilla, a small site about 7 km outside Lorca, which is about 70 miles down the A7 from

Don’t Trust a Woman with Eyeballs in her Bag.

There was a Petanque competition last week, open to all, which we had a go at. You can just see the orange cochonet or piglet that Nia is aiming for in the foreground. We failed to figure in the prize
