A quick schlep to Vilanova

In the weeks before we left there was a horrendous storm. High winds pissing rain, the surf at our front gate. I woke on the morning after to find trees leaves and carnage everywhere. I went outside the bungalow to check the motorhome and found this!! Fortunately no damage!! but a bit scary at first…

Adios Moraira, Volveremos!! we will be back!!

Its been a fantastic stay in our little bungalow by the beach. Moraira is a welcoming town and we have met so many friendly people. There are many highlights,  first a visit by Bernice and her twin Belinda ( two of Janices long time friends) Bernice was Milo’s mum previously so he was over the…

Irony!!

After three months of a painful back injury, more stretching exercise than I have ever done in my life I did what I should have done in the first place – find a good chiropractor.  My instincts told me this but they were not followed.  The doc and others said physio is the way to…

Moraira ..On the beach!!

This year we decided to rent  a property for a few months  like last year and spilt our time away between being on the road and stationary..well almost. We discovered this fabulous bungalow where you step out onto the beach  from the patio when we stayed here with friends Alan and Lesley Ross in March…

Ole!Ole!

And so begins another winter in the Spanish sunshine.  First stop – one month at Vilanova Park. It is always great. We have made so many friends hhere over the past 4 years.  As campsites go this is often regarded as the best in all of Europe. Great staff, tremendous facilities, heated pool Gym Sauna…

A coastline to love

First stop, Genova just for an overnight- we found a camperstop set in the hills of Pegli just outside Genova. An incredibly tight drive around lots of winding roads with hardly any room for passing traffic. Doesn’t stop the pazzo bastardi from driving like nutters!! Next morning it was off to Ventimiglia for lunch by…

We are here! well almost!

After yet another straight forward crossing via Eurotunnel its Bon jour mes amis! Its a brief stop at our usual stop in Calais down by the beach, a walk o the beach with the dugs dinner a good sleep.  The channel ferries close by leave it seems every 30 mins but did not hear a…

Where is the bloody sun?

After crossing from Switzerland toward Italy  via the Gottard Tunnel all 17ks of it, the weather had taken a real turn for the worse. Such a shock to the system! The further south we went the worse it got and after crossing the border at Lugano we headed south west to an old favourite stopping…

When a plan is not a plan

This adventure had been delayed by my hip and back injury which was severely restricting my ability to walk (500 yards at best) or stand. After a productive  BizjetMobile meeting with Pilatus at Stans Switzerland it was time to head south to Milan where we agreed we would make a decision as to whether we…

Giddy Up Neddy!!

Horses were always Janice’s thing until she took me to see the cross country and show jumping at the Sydney Olympics.  On our bucket list of things to do was to go to one of the UK’s biggest Horse shows. We now have done both Horse of the Year at NEC in Birmingham – an…

Arrivederci Sicilia………..almost

Palermo is a wonderful vibrant bustling city, full of energy, great architecture, restaurants and shops. One of its true highlights is its street markets and today would play a big part in our day. We booked a day with Vincenso at the restaurant Cin Cin to learn how to cook some Sicilian specialties. http://ristorantecincin.com/ It turned…
