Welcome to the Grahams on Tour

 

September 30, 2018

We left the campsite near Porto not really sure where we'd head that night. We'd had some recommendations about nice places south of Porto but decided to head straight to Lisbon. We started off deciding to stick to our plan of keeping off the toll roads but the very sl...

September 28, 2018

The campsite we're in is pretty close to a metro line into Porto and the campsite folks called us a taxi to get there, which cost the princely sum of 6EUR. The Porto metro line is very good - clean, modern and pretty fast - and soon deposited us in the centre of town....

First on the agenda after leaving the campsite was to refuel, as we were already intro the red. The station near the campsite in Santiago do Compostela was busy and was also one that was attendant service. The chap doing the attending spoke reasonable English but dispu...

We had a leisurely start to the day but eventually set off to walk the 2km or so into the centre of Santiago de Compostela. Almost immediate we encountered loads of folks also heading that way as we seemed to be on the same route as the Camino trail takes in towards th...

271 miles, 28.5mpg

We got up reasonably early and packed the motorhome ready to go, before heading up to the ridge above the campsite to take in the views over Riano and the nearby mountains. It was another lovely morning, with blue skies plus a band of cloud across the...

128 miles, 21.3 mpg (worst on the trip so far due to all the climbing today)

It rained pretty heavily during the night and we had a rather rude awakening at about 7am when it sounded like some water was dripping into the motorhome. Turns out it was coming in from the ho...

Today we left France and moved into Spain, the first time we've been here with a motorhome and the first time we've been here at all for 15 years. As usual we'd set the satnav to avoid the toll roads so initially that routed us through various towns and villages until...

The weather was back to hot and sunny today - very hot and sunny in fact. Our campsite is a couple of miles outside of Biarritz but although there was a bus available directly outside we decided to stroll into town instead. Biarritz looks a very moneyed town with an in...

September 21, 2018

Today we said goodbye to the Dordogne and instead decided to wander down to Biarritz, just short of the Spanish border. We'd had a recommendation from the France Camping group on Facebook for a campsite called Pavilion Royal in Bidart, just a couple of miles along the...

September 20, 2018

Today was always going to be another scorcher with blue skies and 31C temperature - a far cry from the UK which was suffering under storm Ali. We'd decided to use the little motorbike again today, this time to visit the famous wine making town of Sainte Emilion which w...
