This week we have been house sitting with Pino and happy he seems too. Our adopted cat has settled into UK life very well though the local mouse and shrew population are not so enamoured with his arrival! We have been living in a house for the first time in over a year and a half and that is very odd as well. Though ‘Buster’ has had a great clean out and is ready for the … [Read more...] about Cat Nap or is it Home Already
Monday saw a grey start to the day again in the field in Catcott, but Buster and Jez were having a lovely time catching up with each other and their motorhome adventures. Jez, the Supersonic Adria was very happy as he had just found out that day, that Katherine and James were able to keep him, after finding an expat motor insurance for him. So, for Jez he will be heading back … [Read more...] about Busy Bees
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

At the same time, we can only feel lucky to have been able to travel for the duration of the pandemic and our lockdowns were in warmer places.

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
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 …….

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
