A Wedding, plus planning re-entry to the UK, the 60th Blog of the trip. One year ago, this week, we commenced our first lockdown in Turkey, the world had never experienced anything like this before. There seemed to be a worldwide community working together for all. As we remained on the campsite near Kemer there was a hope that we would get over this soon. We were in awe … [Read more...] about Lockdown the 1st Anniversary

We can still go out and enjoy a meal up until 6.00pm and curfew they would want to start … [Read more...] about Hotel Cadizfornia
Well that was an interesting year, when we started 2020 life seemed so simple, we were getting ready for what we thought would be a fairly different adventure, by driving to Azerbaijan in our lovely Elddis Encore 250 motorhome. There would be some challenges but all in all an exceedingly long drive across new countries meeting lovely people, what possibly could go … [Read more...] about New Year New hope.
We have been on the Costa del Luz now for 7 weeks, still in semi lockdown and are officially unable to move around. Though we have seen many vans heading up and down the coast regardless, we will be setting off later this week heading for Gibraltar to fly back to the UK for Christmas.
