And that is what we are doing at the moment during our first week in Los Alcazares, Murcia. We have been here many times, including in pre-motorhome life as David’s Aunt and Uncle have a place here and with the old Murcia airport literally no more than five minutes away we have been able to take advantage of their generosity and hospitality a good few times. On our … [Read more...] about Repeat, Repeat.
The best way to start a tour of champagne is of course with a bit of royalty, and where could be worthier than Versailles.

That said we started back on our travels after … [Read more...] about The Long Way Up
We have had a particularly lovely week this week despite saying our fond farewells to various relatives we have been able to meet up with on our travels back from the Dorset area. The weather has as ever been mixed, but as the saying goes “you don’t go to England for the weather” and of course you all had a decent Covid summer last year. That said we did manage to start the … [Read more...] about Rain or Shine
