My bag is (somewhat) packed and the map (sort of) consulted.
Tomorrow I’m embarking on a first and I’m excited to share this with you.
For three weeks I shall be touring the south of Spain and Portugal in a campervan.
I’ve spent time exploring New Zealand by car where I camped in a tent each night, but this time I am looking forward to revving it up a gear and glamping it in a van.
Following on from my previous post about planning versus going with the flow, I have shrugged off people’s raised eyebrows and cries of “won’t you be cold?” and “where will you sleep?” as I explain I am disembarking the ferry in Zebrugge, Belgium and taking my time to journey to the south of Spain.
No fixed route, no pre-booked accommodation; just the camper and the open road.
My goal is simple: find the sunshine, a breathtaking view and a glass of the local red. Spend time exploring, reading, taking photos and seeing where the days take me. I am not overly fussed about planning every detail about the trip, just willing to see what unfurls in front of me.
So, adios England and I’ll see you later Spain.
If anyone has any tips of places to see and visit in Southern Spain and the Algave, I’d be very pleased to hear them.
For now, my passport is packed and I am eager to hit the road for what will be an incredible adventure!
