Should you wish to and I wouldn’t. Having walked over the last week many miles and to be honest since we have been in Zahora, we have cycled and walked many miles and/or kilometres, whichever one you would like to use. I like to use miles for both cycling and more so walking, as although the number is less, miles seem more hardcore! Again, I wouldn’t want to walk in my shoes as … [Read more...] about Walking In My Shoes
Elddis Encore 250
We have had a lovely couple of weeks shooting down the coast of Spain heading to the start of our first Elddis adventure back in 2016. Having had the chance to play golf twice last week this week we have been lucky enough to meet up with old friends near where I spent many childhood Easters and summer holidays, Marbella. Like everything when you look back it is all different … [Read more...] about The Sting
And that’s what David has been fortunate enough to be able to do this week- with different sets of friends and on two different courses. This of course makes the carrying of the golfclubs all worthwhile, even if as ever they haven’t performed quite as well as they should have done. In fact, it was a week of losing with the magic sticks for David, as on the Bank Holiday … [Read more...] about Golfing A-Round
Last week we had crossed back into France and stayed at St Tropez, and we had had to make some decisions on where we would feel most comfortable and safe during these strange times. The sun had returned, and we took a two-day break and had a walk about ate in and relaxed. Though Covid numbers are rising throughout Europe we wanted to be warm as well as safe, for the next … [Read more...] about Another Bump in The Road.
Thank you very much. Italy again for another wonderful trip, and showing us more of your delightful country. Thank you very much as well – to Mr Mark for putting us up in his lovely Lucca flat, while Buster had some waterworks repaired (thank you very much to Elddis as well, for sorting that out).We won’t be saying any thanks to Covid for yet again making us change our plans … [Read more...] about Grazie Mille
After a relatively quiet week last week in Switzerland, this has been a positively whirlwind run through France this week. We departed Les Rousses and headed south towards Lyon. and after a few hours stopped at a small vineyard, it was in Park4Night, but there was no one home when we arrived so we sort of just parked up on a pitch. It turns out it was a France Passion … [Read more...] about Belle France?? Masque Obligatoire!
Sunday morning rose, bring with it a great view of Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc, the sun shining brightly over the many vineyards in the area. We had arrived at Steve and Sinead’s the night before and of course the wine had flowed, along with a real treat for me- a couple of glasses of port. If I loved them before I loved them even more when they produced the bottle of my … [Read more...] about A Swiss Delight.
It has all been a bit odd over the past week, we have moseyed around the north of Italy, Piedmont to be precise, and it added to the food and wine heaven that is Italy. Our plan was, to head back up to Champagne to meet up with Karen’s brother and celebrate his 70th birthday. This would have retraced our journey to the very start of what was to be a Champagne to Caviar trip. … [Read more...] about Arrivederci Italia, and Covid changes things again!
