A Tale of Two Cities

We went to Valencia today, the coach was picking us up at 9am so an early start. Mike had set the alarm for 6.30am and we duly got up in the dark and cold. We went for a shower and realised we had enough time for a bit of breakfast. All I had was half…

Benicassim

Today we went to the Benicassim beach front and had a wonderful relaxing time just strolling along the empty promenade. The sun was high in the sky with just a few wisps of clouds. As we wandered along the front, we noticed plaques here and there, back in the 1920s & 30s, Beniscassim was the…

A Gaudi Wowdy Day…

Today, we went back to Barcelona to see some of Gaudi’s famous buildings. It was amazing and everything I hoped it would be. Sometimes things in your head never quite match up to the real thing, but Gaudi was a genius. I have never seen anything quite like this architecture before and he allows you…

We’re going to a Pitch Party…

Quick post today, we’ve been invited to a pitch party by the long term residents of the site. We’re in here, methinks…  1pm and bring drink, nibbles, glasses and plates…  sounds familiar.. So we duly arrived and had a wonderful fun few hours on a spare pitch drinking and chatting to people of different nationalities,…

Barcelona Birthday

My birthday,  OMG another year has passed. However, for the first time that I can remember I think it will be sunny and hot. Something I never have enjoyed having a November birthday. I have had the opportunity to visit many citys in Europe, and have always adored Rome above all others but visiting Barcelona…

Beach Bull

We are settling in here at Vilanova about an hour outside Barcelona. The park is large and the facilities including open air swimming pools are still open and look inviting. People who we have spoken to appear to be long termers.   Our pitch is partly sheltered but we do have sun all day as…

Parrots of the Caribbean…

Lazy day today. Decided that we would stay awhile here and not travel. What a great place. We will definitely return and stay a lot longer. We walked along the promenade and had our first tapas. Just a series of photographs today.      

Sun, Sea and Salata…

Not much happened this morning, apart from it was freezing cold first thing. We checked out of the camp site about 10am and started heading towards Spain. We stopped at an aire to have breakfast as we wanted to get going. Nothing much to report on the journey, the landscape changed from Rocky to plateau,…

Viaduct de Millau

We are sitting here directly by the River Tarn just down from the Millau Bridge. What a day! We left Linda and Ian this morning after some long au revoirs, they wanted to show us part of the route that St Jacques made to Santiago de Compostela in the middle ages, . Pilgrims still use this…
