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. But luckily for us the lockdown here is much lighter than in the UK and we are taking advantage … [Read more...] about A Walk In The Park

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.

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
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!
