New Adventures -The Algarve Portugal

After a hard 3 day drive down to the Eastern Algarve, our intention on arrival was to stop and breathe. We pulled into the Aire at Vila Real De Santa Antonio and let out a sigh of relief. That was until will got settled in and quickly realised that our water pump was pulsing every…

Our route Calais France to the Eastern Algarve in 3 days

When we left the U.K. on the 6th January it was a typical grey winter day, the blue skies of the south were calling though and like many others we saw no point in hanging around in France for more of the same. Purposely we got to the Euro tunnel well ahead of schedule, knowing…

Adjusting to a new lifestyle

Well it’s been quite a while since we’ve updated our blog, mainly due to the fact that we have not been travelling of late. With our next travelling adventure in our sights, we thought we’d update you with what we’ve been up to. Those of you that have followed our blog for some time will…

New Roots

We are pretty excited here at follow our motorhome HQ (A.K.A Chez Boris), as we have found a cute little house that we are hoping will soon be ours. After just a couple of weeks of hard house hunting,where we were finding that properties were being snapped up as soon as they came on the…

The Costa Blanca Coast

After almost 12 months travelling extensively throughout Europe our return to Spain this time has definitely been more about rest and recuperation than sight seeing. After visiting our friends in the mountains above Alicante we returned to our little piece of heaven in Altea where for the 1st time in a long time we stayed…

Living, Traveling or Holidaying?
