Overstaying by 24 days, form filling, covid tests and self-isolation plus Test and Trace On the 23rd of January 2020 we set off on the Eurotunnel, the plan; drive through France, Italy, Greece, on to Turkey through Georgia to Azerbaijan, and then come back. Simple really. It did not work out that way! But it has been an adventure, over 6 months of various lockdowns 3 in … [Read more...] about Adiós España and Hello UK
There have been many times on this trip, where I would really have liked to have pushed David of a cliff or mountain, but this week wasn’t one of them, so he did it voluntarily himself on Tuesday, making his first ever tandem paragliding trip, jumping from some 1,050 metre (3,400 feet). The beautiful village of Algodonales, set on the edge of Sierra de Grazalema is … [Read more...] about Skyfall
We are coming to the end of the European part of our adventure, due to Brexit we no longer have the right to travel around as we please, the 90 / 180 day rule will apply going forward. We are looking forward to discovering the gems that our home country offers over the summer months.

Here we sit on Sunday morning looking out over the hills and vales that are Malaga, well in our world they’re Malaga. We’re certainly in the province of Malaga, and the drive was only about an hour, backwards if looking at the map or to be precise inland from there. We are in small Andalusian town by the name of Periana, and are parked on a camper stop in the parking area … [Read more...] about The Wheels on the Bus

One thing you can always rely on when travelling in motorhomes is meeting and enjoying lovely people’s company, this can of course be as much locals as well as fellow motorhomers. This trip, for the usual boring reason, has been slightly different. Not so many people, a reluctance by everyone to meet and greet, with of course the huge barriers of not being able to touch, kiss, … [Read more...] about Pancake Olympics
Hi there guys! ‘Pino’ here you know the cat the that the humans keep telling you about. Anyway, they thought it would be a good idea for me to write the Blog this week! I first introduced myself to the stupid people back in November and carefully make them think that I needed help and perhaps adopting. In fact, I saw their motorhome and realised that as British they would … [Read more...] about Should I stay or should I go??
Not generally two words uttered together, in my case. I have been known, or accused of giving numerous people food poisoning at Christmas once. In fact, in the end the number run into double figures and some hadn’t even been in attendance at my Christmas soiree! Nibbles in my world generally run to a packet of stale crisps, so Karen and kitchen, or more appropriately cooking … [Read more...] about Karen’s Kitchen
And it certainly was with me and two policemen on Tuesday. I would say my criminal past flashed before my eyes as David and I cycled into Barbate to do our weekly shop. We were heading to Conil, which as we have said in earlier posts is easier, market wise and on a bike. However, due to high 100 numbers, Conil was closed and we were advised by Filippo, our morning coffee stop … [Read more...] about Lost in Translation.
