And that is what we are doing at the moment during our first week in Los Alcazares, Murcia. We have been here many times, including in pre-motorhome life as David’s Aunt and Uncle have a place here and with the old Murcia airport literally no more than five minutes away we have been able to take advantage of their generosity and hospitality a good few times. On our … [Read more...] about Repeat, Repeat.
The best way to start a tour of champagne is of course with a bit of royalty, and where could be worthier than Versailles. With so many plans abated for so many over the past few, unbelievably now years- it was with near astonishment when with David and I checking into the hotel at Versailles that my brother David, Chris and Claire walked in behind us for brother David’s … [Read more...] about All Fizzed Out
TTFN Britain and Bonjour France As this great adventure comes to its sunset, we head back to France on the Eurotunnel, the same journey we made in January 2020, this time it is so different. Now we must present certificates to prove that we are jabbed, and Karen’s passport is stamped. How the world has changed!

We are now in Bonny Scotland and the road up has been the long way up, taking our time to visit many of the top UK tourist spots on the way. Like so many of our travels we have not given for one reason or another, enough time to many of these places, but of course we can re-visit another time, all things being willing. That said we started back on our travels after … [Read more...] about The Long Way Up

When we left in January 2020, we had no idea that most of our planning and hopes would be a mirage. 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.

We had attempted a visit at Christmas … [Read more...] about Test and disgrace, family and friends, back on the road.
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
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 …….

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!
