    Waiting to board the Channel Tunnel, en route to Spain. In search of some fun and winter sunshine.

    image.jpeg

    This is our first ever trip to Spain in our MH and our first return visit in 12 years, having lived there for a couple of years.

    Have mixed feelings and memories of Spain. Last time I was there, I was a fat, depressed and verging on becoming an alcoholic - now? .... I can add grey and balding to the list

    Hope to get to Spain in a couple of days. The only fixed plan that we have is to visit Granada on 8th Jan, otherwise, we're going to be guided by the weather, and the places that we find along our way.

    Happy to post pics of our adventure if anyone is interested

    Hasta luego

    Brilliant news Robert, lots of pics please of you both and your food choices too, though I'd rather look at Mrs C's lovely smile than a fat balding, (think I'll leave it there, Rule 1 and all that). Your last adventure was enjoyed by many and no-one more than me. Keep smiling you two, make me envious though we might not be too far behind you. Griff & Jax

    By the way do you go along the coast from East Sussex to the tunnel?
