Welcome to our blog, we hope you enjoy following our adventures! We split our sabbatical in 2 parts: Part 1 was from March to June 2010 touring around in our campervan in France and Spain. Part 2 started on the 7th of July when we left Scotland to cycle through Europe and the Middle East to Africa in the remaining 6 months (back for Xmas). Have a look at the route below and we'll try to post pics as much as we can! xx
After the Scottish campsite we decided to head a bit further south (basically in land from the evil Benidorm). We were planning just to stay a few days, but stayed a week because it's great here:o). We're staying in a lovely bunkhouse/campsite up in the hills (Finestrat) called The Orange House...its got a pool and everything!
You can pick your oranges and lemons from the tree and we met some nice people for evening chats and bbqs. There is so much to do in the surroundings here and it was a hot sunny week.
We've been climbing a fair bit, Claire's started to lead her climbs and has been doing great (even taking some falls or air time as its called) and Dan is getting back to where he was before the injury.
We also had some lovely lazy breakfast mornings by the pool and did a little cycle to the coast.
Tuesday we were dared by the 3 english guys to join them on one of their day hikes and it was a beautiful hill walk followed by beers and paella on the tacky seafront. Good practice for Corsica!
We're off towards France tomorrow for a week of luxury in St Cezaire with Carol and Cliff. Jippie!!!
