Mon 12/09/16: ‘We don’t like Mondays’ the song goes, but generally I have never minded them, Tuesday always being the ugh day for me. This Monday was one that I will remember certainly for the next 6 weeks while my wrist remains in plaster. Moving on from seeing friends in Barcelona we were on the hunt for a more suitable camp site near to Barcelona for the end of the month … [Read more...] about Taking a Break
Thank you all for your kind wishes concerning Karens's arm, that after a four hour stretch in the hospital on Tuesday we found had been fractured. She now is in a cast for 5-6 weeks, so David will have to up his game.

Anyway we are trying to he one sent to a friend who is coming to … [Read more...] about Barcelona and Wing Mirror update!
Tales of the Unexpected happened twice this week. One pleasant, when we happened upon the town of Jaca and a particular restaurant as per the pictures. We had just come from a series of Spanish pretty towns in the Pyrenees so really wasn't expecting much from Jaca, a gateway town as they call it. Wrong it was lovely, a string of lovely restaurants beyond the one we ate in, … [Read more...] about Tales of the Unexpected
Driving down the narrow roads of the Pyrenees sometimes you get very close to the drivers on the other side of the road. Today too close after a gentle wave at an oncoming Motorhome 'Smack' we come into contact. Two wing mirrors all over the place. Our lovely protectors were not able to take the strain and we now are off hunting a replacement. Peugeot's website not … [Read more...] about Smack, ouch that hurt. The mirror is shattered.
