Chris and Marta drove us all the short distance from Cambrils to Montroig del Camp yesterday so we could all take a look at the Joan Miro museum, enjoy a very well priced lunch, and head out on a walk to a most precarious Ermita. Joan Miro first went to Mon...

So we made it to Spain and our new campsite is Camping In El Pla De Les Serenes  La Llosa at Cambrils. It's a good site by Spanish standards although I admit to being disappointed on arrival because of the close-packed gravel pitches and leafless trees. A b...

Introduction
Hello!
I'm originally from Sussex, UK. Having spent the 2013-14 winter in our caravan touring Portugal & Spain, we've now got the bug and are planning to spend the foreseeable future living full time 'on the road'. I'll be blogging about our travels alongside book reviews, music finds, arts events, recipes and general musings on my life. 
Please feel welcome to Follow and Comment. Check out an ad or two if they're relevant and maybe we'll bump into each other on a campsite somewhere soon!
