Decided we had enough of the Basque country and we would start making our way to Portugal. Gijon was about 3 hours drive down the motorway. Stopped off at San Vicente de la Barquea for fuel and decided it was such a nice place we stayed for lunch and managed to buy a Spanish sim card to get some data, good value at €20 for 20gb data and 2000 international minutes.Read more

Decided it was time to hit Spain. There was a free Aire just inside Spain in the hills and we thought we would start there. Didn’t bank on Co Pilot taking us up steep, single track concrete roads to a dead end. Found the right way in the end!Read more
Martin and Kay Dumont from Guernsey, first time motorhomers and ready to travel. ‘Dave’ is our Mobilvetta K Yacht 85, purchased in 2017 and travelled all the way from Italy. After following Jason and Julie Buckley’s blog 'Ourtour' for years I just couldn’t get the name ‘Dave’ out of my head. So the Mobilvetta had to be another 'Dave’. More...
