I’m back!

I am!

The weather was better this year, thou we did have a couple of rainy nights, and we did get a rainy day or two during the last week.

We ended up spending two nights in Spain. It was the second night that we had a thunder storm. it only lasted about 2 or 3 hours, but before that we could see lightening lighting up the sky, but we couldn’t hear the thunder.
Spain was also the hottest part of the holiday, we passed a garage and the sign said that the temperature was 40C.

We then traveled across France towards the Mediterranean, and stayed in a campsite near Montpelier. We then started to head north, crossed the Millau Viaduct.
Then we went back to the west coast to Bordeaux, and then travelled further north into Brittany, where it got a bit cooler.
We then headed towards the north coast of Brittany to a campsite that we visited last year. We stayed for 4 nights.
On the Saturday we moved to a campsite that was just 15 minutes from the ferry port in Roscoff.

I’ll post more about the holiday during the next few weeks, and I will find some links to the campsites that we visited.

More later.

Getting ready for hols…

Yep, its that time of the year again!
On Sunday evening, me and dad set sail to Santander from Plymouth. It will be a 20 hour crossing, and we will get to Santander about 12noon on Monday.
That will be the start of our two week camping holiday in France.

Yes, I know that Santander is in Spain, but we will only be staying one night in Spain.

This past week has been hectic for dad as he has been getting the car ready for the holiday. He has changed the air, oil, and petrol (its actually a diesel car!) filter, and has replaced the radiator.
The only thing that hasn’t been sorted is the rear suspension, which sinks down if anything heavier than a wet tissue is placed in the boot.

He has also got some stuff down from the attic.
Meanwhile….I have been carrying as normal. I have dug out last years Euros (€72.91) and have brought extra Euros (so has dad).

If I don’t post again before leaving,
See you in two weeks.
