Rounding the bend we saw in the distance, the Manhattan skyline, shiny skyscrapers piercing the light cloud cover and a feel of excitement and anticipation as we approached. The nearer we got, the tall tower blocks painted white, neon lights flickering...... white? Hold on, this isn't New York its.... Benidorm! Well, you can't be in… Continue reading Benny and the Hills
We really don't have a fascination with anything morbid, honest we don't! Yes we enjoy the Nordic dramas but we do worry that you think we are just scouting around Spain looking for ghost towns, we're not! Sadly, they exist though, especially following the civil war. The road across from Morella to Belchite was as… Continue reading Via Verde to Valencia
..... solar panel..... Reflecting on a few things and some news from home, this is what we decided. If you don't look for the sunshine in life you are only going to feel flat 🙂 After our surreal experiences at the outdoor sculpture park, when we arrived in Girona we felt like we needed a… Continue reading Life is like a …….
Salvador Dalí has his fingerprints all over this area of Spain. Born in Figueres, he made it home to his fantastical museum, 10 years work, designing an incredible theatre of work, in an old run down theatre. It was a work of art as a building let alone the vast array of works inside. His… Continue reading Surrealism at it’s Best!
So many people are concerned about how we do our washing when we are on tour, that we thought we'd oblige and share the vast array of options available, from outside supermarkets, to Aires and campsites. There are also pretty decent showers, loos etc so we can sustain an acceptable level on the personal side… Continue reading Widow Twanky World
In terms of State Parks we’ve been to several for ‘hikes’ as they’re called here, strolls to you and I. We’ve seen so much diversity, more Osprey, Ibis, all kinds of Heron, different varieties of Woodpecker, Mockingbirds, Buzzards and Hawks. Unable to photograph with the phone but cast in the memory. We were also incredibly… Continue reading The Panhandle to The Stove
Heading away from The Smoky Mountains and Blue Ridge Parkway we headed South West, waterfall hunting, passing some unusual roadside Americana. Rather than breaking ourselves in gently, we arrived at Tallulah Gorge State Park. There are over 1000 State Parks all over the US as well as 61 National Parks. We've always found them to… Continue reading My Name is Tallulah
We had some luck with such good flights to get here but we had even better luck when the weather was against SpaceX. Our first day in Florida and we were able to drive up to Titusville and watch the SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket launch, with four astronauts onboard, to the International Space Station. Not… Continue reading Spaceship to Savannah
So having returned from the Nordics mid September we thought we should blog before heading off this time. Sitting at The Ranch, in between trips, watching the coming’s and going’s, we set about making a list of what we’ve been up to and it wasn’t that long so this may be a rare short one!… Continue reading The Inbetweeners, Tytherington, Dallas
We don't have anything against Germany but we didn't have enough time to stay longer than an overnight as we were heading towards Hollands Hook. Primarily a autobahn drive we had the pleasure of the "woosh-mobiles" again, more or less flying past us at ridiculous speeds, for company. It got us talking about how we… Continue reading Daft in Delft, Giddy in Gouda
