Even we motorhomers get caught up in the Christmas rush and hullabaloo especially when we are very fortunate enough to have 10 family and friends visiting for Christmas and us wanting like everyone to make it as special as possible. The weather as you all will know was against us and had caused much devastation to the area of Murcia where we were to spend this period. It’s … [Read more...] about Turkey Stuffing
Mon 12/12/16: After a night parked on the road like the poor relations, or keeping it current –no room at the inn, in this case Rincon de la Victoria, Malaga we headed slightly further on down the road to find a new home. For whatever reason not only was the day grey but moods were as well and we just couldn’t agree on where to park at all and ended up on a camp … [Read more...] about 50 Shades of Grey!
Mon 05/12/16: The rain welcomed in the day again for us and we watched from the vans windows as the rain kept on falling making the sand beneath us very heavy and clingy.

The sun was shining again and so we hopped on our steely trusty mules and cycled to see the nearby cave … [Read more...] about Chocolate for Breakfast
Two of David’s favourite colours in the world of food. Black = black pudding. Red= red wine and we managed to cover the top Spanish of each in one week and also pay homage to one of Spain’s leading golfers, the great Seve. Mon 08/08/16: Up and last lot of washing on before we go on the hunt for chocolate with churros in the very bonita town of Santillana del Mar. In the south … [Read more...] about Black to Red
