Welcome to our blog


We are today 02/01/2020

Inbetween Roquitas and Aguadulce

free parking on the beach


walked to Agualdulce this morning and saw a whale way off shore watched it for around half an hour swimming west.






then cycled (us not the whale) to Roquitas, and returned with a great sunset behind us. Cycling off tomorrow to Roccitas to see the castle , Ampitheatre , and hopefuly some Phoenician archiology.

we arrived here from Almirymar Port where we had spent 6 days mostly eating and drinking with 2 drunken english couples

and a very drunked German couple, who were all so great, we have had the best time and will try hard to meet them all again.





















OK so we stayed a couple of days at my Brother Colin`s place near Averanches.

Left on Sunday 1st December, driving all day in the rain to a place called the Martyr`s Village, Oradour-Sur-Glane, where in 1944, 642 of its inhabitants were killed by the Nazis.   we stayed one night visiting the village on the Monday.

On Monday afternoon we traveled to Bordeaux to a Vinyard called Vignobles Pestoury Yvrac, 5 Euros a night but free if you did the free wine tasting! so we bought a couple of bottles 5 Euros each.

we woke in the morning to a beautiful sunrise and drove on towards Spain.

We arrived at Irun, Spain on Tuesday 3rd staying at another free place called  Hondarribia/Guadalupe. This was up a hill over looking the city of Irun on one side and the se on the other, a great place and very quiet, in the forest, with Bulls roaming around freely in the evening, so best to stay inside!

From Irun we drove to Valladolid parking in a carpark right in the center of the City by the river. 5 Euros, per night

from Valladolid, we drove further south to Segovia, staying for free at the Plaza de Toros, a very busy and therefore noise aire, but worth it for a great city with its Roman aquaduct. loads to see and do.

Wednesday 27th November2019

We drove from Embry to to Agincourt and walked the 12k? around the battlefield an very interesting and lovely place, then off to Le Treport.

great place on the cliff with a funicular train to the town below (free). 6 Euros for the aire with EHU water and waste at a price.

We had read it can be windy but were not prepaired for the night we had!!! it was like being in a washing maching thought we would loose the bikes, we did not sleep all night and concidered driving off but the wind and rain would have made for a horrible drive.
