Motorhoming in France … from Beaches to a little culture!

We nipped down on the bikes into the village of St Martin en Re, to have a look at the port at night time. I forgot my camera, I can’t believe it, the sunset was truly incredible. I’ve never experienced anything like it in my life and you’ll have to take my word for it. […]

Motorhoming in France … a real gem of an island

I’m afraid I’ve gone overboard with the photos again today, I’m sorry but there is just so much to share!! You’ve all read the novel, the story goes like this, the heroine (normally a writer) has a broken heart, she up sticks and goes off to an island where she rents a cottage overlooking the […]

Motorhoming in France … Feeling Nauti…cal!

I feel as though I should be wearing a navy and white striped t-shirt, yellow sou’wester jacket and a pair of Musto Sailor’s boots! Yes – we are well and truly in fishermen’s’ land. We woke early again today and after a night of rain, we were delighted to see the sky was blue once […]

Motorhoming in Spain … The Darker Side of Boule Players

Well, we’re here at La Manga and although I’ve read some pretty dire reviews online, about it being such a huge sprawling campsite, it actually is quite pleasant for us anyway. Once you are on your pitch, it’s lovely and private and because the site is so big, it offers quite amazing facilities, including many […]

Motorhoming in Portugal … and back to Spain!

Oh dear! What are we playing at? Well, we were in Spain, went along the south coast of Portugal, with plans of heading further North, saw the weather forecast and scuttled back across the border into Spain again. Well, I suppose that’s the joy of motorhoming, you can move on whenever you like to wherever […]

Well, I’m not sure how I feel right now, we’ve just said goodbye to our very good friends Andy and Sarah. They came over on Friday and we’ve had the most fantastic 4 day weekend. We’ve eaten, walked, drunk all in excess!! It’s been amazing. It’s been a  boost. I’m afraid I was the one […]

Day 42 Motorhoming in Spain … Mijas Day Trip

I can only hope that I will be able to write this post with the humour and imagery that it deserves! When you think of Spanish people, I don’t know, if like me, you imagine the mañana effect, dark, swarthy men, beautiful, olive skinned señoritas, stunningly, attractive children playing together in town squares, all of […]

Day 41 Motorhoming in Spain … Cabapino

So what do you do all day? That is surely a question you must be asking! Well let me take you through today, so far anyway. I woke up at 7am, it was still dark, Charlie needed to go out so I took him for a walk to the bottom of the campsite where there […]

Day 28 and 29 Motorhoming in Spain … L’hospitalier to Oliva via Peniscola

Oh well, what can I say, we’ve spent two days of rather (if I dare say it) boring driving. We’ve met other travellers who say, ‘Oh didn’t you know? That’s Spain for you!!!’ We seem to go from beautiful orange groves to mountains to built up coastlines and back to orange groves again. It’s strange […]
