Motorhoming in France … a real gem of an island

Motorhoming in France … What? No Chateau?

This is a bit of a bumper photo edition, I got carried away, please accept my apologies!! After our little trip to La Cotiniere, we popped over to a town/village called Chateau d’Oleron. I went into the tourist information office and picked up a map, the helpful lady asked me what in particular we wanted […]

Motorhoming in Spain … Motorhoming in France!

We woke up in Villafranca, it was pitch black, not one other light was on, so we busied ourselves preparing to leave as soon as we could,  All camp-sites that we have stayed on have ‘quiet’ periods, normally between midnight and 8 a.m. Our luck was in on this camp-site, the quiet time ended at […]

Motorhoming in Spain … Heading North :(

Well, as it happens we need to get our backsides up to Paris! We have some paperwork that needs sorting out and signing. It’s a real bummer. I should warn you that this may not be the happiest post I’ve ever written! We took Charlie for his last walk on the beach at La Manga […]

Motorhoming in Spain ,,, A little bit of ‘me’ time!

OK so you’ve read the title of this post, A little bit of ‘me time’, I wonder what springs to mind. A massage? A bath? A manicure? Well no! I’m not exactly a girlie girl. I’m more of a tomboy who has days pretending to be a lady! I would love to be one of […]
