233 – Can we stay here forever?

Having driven so far, so fast, we are staying put a bit longer. This means I’ve less to report back so I might have to make the blogs every other day to not bore you with repetition. Nothing seems to happen before 10 or sometimes 11am. We forget that the Spanish are more nocturnal than …

232 – Studies and yoga with a view

With a fast approaching deadline for my coursework we decided to stay put and enjoy the views. Having taken the pups for their morning walk along the beach our suspicions were confirmed, everyone was english, we have stumbled into an English enclave. Still we can totally understand why they choose to winter here, the view …

231 – Mural hunting

Whilst walking the pups on the beach, the clouds lifted and we got our first glimpse of Gibraltar. That settled it, we are heading west. Still if we visit we will no longer be able to state we haven’t been on British soil for almost 8 months! But firstly van chores of laundry and food …

230 – New Years on the beach!

N.B. for some reason it won’t let me attach photos so I will add them separately to FB. Waking in the mountains we soon discovered to our horror that we had run out of LPG and couldn’t make a cuppa! The nearest gas station was 35mins away at the coast so certainly not the end …

229 – End of a decade – what a year!

It was around this time last year that we were just beginning to get serious about the possibility of living in a van and travelling Europe. 4 months later, and my business is sold, van bought as well as an accidental puppy purchase, and we were on our way. Whatever caused Mark’s midlife crisis, or …

228 – The simple life

I really love this spot and being in no hurry to move on we had another day enjoying the scenery. After completing the van chores, I had a pamper with face mask, pedicure and washed my hair in the cold stream. We walked the pups and then later fashioned a double bungy lead to attempt …

227 – Life near a smallholding

Oh I do love a lazy Sunday. We had peaches in porridge for breakfast and lots of coffee before hitting the trails for a 3 miler. Ernests leg was still a little sensitive so it was Jaspers turn to join me. It was a lovely slow amble with plenty of sniff stops but so nice …

225 – 226 Thrillseeking walks, cave houses and gorges

Todays walk could be dangerous…you even have to wear a hard hat! According to reviews if the Caminito del Rey is sold out online you can still go early in the morning in the hope of getting one of the 50 spare day tickets. I’d asked the guide the day before and he suggested arriving …

224 – Boxing day Baby

My youngest turned one! Happy birthday Ernest πŸΎπŸŽ‚ We woke early and we had two presents for him…a beef wellington flavoured nyla bone and chameleon toy. His siblings stole both so I unearthed Mabels buried ox horn and he happily chewed on that. I was so relieved he was back to his normal bouncy happy …
