Personal Aire
Iīm almost sure I have to put my trip on hold because of the travel restrictions, unless they come up with a new plan.
I will still keep planning though because it must come to an end eventually.

Mind you they thought WW11 would be over by Christmas in 1939

Such a shame, Jan. Just keep tweeking the plans and refining them for when these awful times are past.

Alberts eye op on Friday

Hopefully he will get his license back to drive the van

Meanwhile we are debating is it worth another £500 to insure the van, it hasnít moved for 18 months except for MOT

Thatís £750 down the drain

It isnít easy to steal, behind 6ft locked gates on a main road, we could tie it down with cables

It could be months before he can drive it depending on eyes, Covid and replating it down to 350 again

Still thinking about it

I don't want to tempt fate Sandra but what if someone lobs a bottle over the gate? - could do a fair bit of damage.

My current dream trip is quite simple but I think unattainable under current circumstances, also it's not that unusual:


Ferry from Portsmouth to Santander/Bilbao.


Saunter through Spain and Portugal, following the coast.


From Spain into France via the Costa Brava


Saunter around southern France before heading back west to the French Atlantic coast and a slow wander back up to St Malo.


Stopping at aires/FP/ACSI (or their Spanish/Portuguese equivalents).


Having spoken to the Wonderful MrsWez we's spend three months doing this, she doesn't want to be away for too long.


Apart from the current Covid thing we both still work and also now, there's the whole 90 day rule... ...which is why it remains a dream trip.

Sounds like a plan Mr Wez. Make sure you get on with it. Just look on here at all the people who can no longer travel for all sorts of personal and health reasons.
