This is now the third week of our UK adventure, and we are really enjoying it. This week’s mix has been two Campsites and a CL site. Each has offered us new perspectives on what motorhoming is like in the UK. We have sort of got back into a rhythm and are meeting up with friends old and new as we travel. At East Fleet we were lucky to meet some people who have followed our … [Read more...] about UK and Explore
Hi there yes, it is I, ‘Pino’ with an update. When I last wrote in February it was to ask you all should I go with them to live in England. Well so what did I do? Well I am in England! Once I told them that I would go, it was back to the dreaded vet place for more of those ‘jections’ I think I mentioned that I now have a wonderful Spanish passport that allows me go to live … [Read more...] about I’m Home and ……. Meanwhile back in Spain!
For the latest from Pino the Cat Scroll Down As lockdowns go ours has not been as tough as many of our readers, bars and restaurants are still open until 6.00pm and though we have been restricted to the area we are in, even that is lifting next week as the numbers across Andalucía continue to drop massively. We will be allowed move around the whole province and see … [Read more...] about A 60th and a Passport
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
Hi there and welcome, we are now fully one year on from when we departed the UK. Such a different world we now live in as we have looked back on the year we thought we could give you some numbers on how much this has cost how far we travelled plus some other highlights. But we will come back to that. This week we have had a long stretch of poor weather with lots of rain … [Read more...] about Wind, Waves and Whiskey????
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.
For one of this band of two this week, and it has meant that we have seen friends of old and more lately new ones for the week, and as is the case still in Spain, we have been able to eat and drink out. It’s also been a big celebration here in Spain itself, as Wednesday was Three Kings Day. The Feast of Epiphany is traditionally Spain’s main festive holiday, when children … [Read more...] about It’s a Celebration!
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.
