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.

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.

Why, you might ask, but for us it was why not. We … [Read more...] about B 2 B

Or just maybe we had fallen in love with Spain and Italy was not in the running. Here we are, in 2020 a new normal and Italy is fantastic! So what has changed? As you know we … [Read more...] about Viva Italia!
Gelato, pizza, pasta, Aperol Spritz, Peroni, Birra Moretti, ruins, medieval hilltop towns, style, fashion, beautiful people. Shocking roads, even worse drivers, unlit tunnels, collapsible bridges, Grimaldi Line Ferries. All the above are Italian and some are excellent and some are just awful and I think we all know which is which out of the above. We started with an … [Read more...] about All That’s Italian
As we sit on this Tuesday evening on a campsite in Halkidiki, with the smells of Romania, Serbia and Bulgaria meat fest food cooking all around us we wonder whether we are in Greece. Then our food baby bellies rumble from the lovely fresh fish-dorado and calamari, Greek salad and tzatziki we had for lunch along with the beautiful azure blue waters and we know we are very firmly … [Read more...] about A Postcard from Greece
What a week, after just over 10 weeks completely stationery at Sundance Camp in Turkey and then a short sprint in the outside world of Turkey, with a two week ‘just to be sure’ stay in a lovely apartment in Gulluk we have done 1,500 km in the five days. Buster hasn’t known what has hit him, but nevertheless responded as usual very well, requiring his little health kick cocktail … [Read more...] about Turkxit!
