    Typical...

    I can never do anything right... :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    (I don't have any white things... I think what you see are the pockets of the trousers... always turn them inside out when washing them... I suppose that's not the right way either!)


    Anyway... all done now... supermarket shopping... footy... and off to Pego Altar tomorrow.

    Thanks for all your good wishes.

    First leg completed. Parked peacefully at Pego Do Altar.

    The lake is pretty full and pretty.

    The cool stray dog we call Jamie recognises the Hymer and limped all the way across the dam to get his treat.

    He is really two faced though because the moment he has scoffed my offering he is off to find another sucker.

    Never done a day's work in his life!

    Sorry we missed you JJ, that's the attraction of Pedro's - he won't let you go with all his hospitality. Maybe next year, have a good drive.

    If you had thought JJ you could have given someone ( tiny and French) your washing and picked it up on the way to Germany:Rofl1: .

    have a safe trip :thumb:

    Next leg of the adventure started a 2 pm today as I set off from the Studio after touching base and proving I was still alive...

    Now having coffee and biscuit break near Castello Branco...

    Spanish border 150 kms away

    Yes Folks... my coffee break is on one of those dangerous service station parking places... :Rofl1:

    I love being on the road... :thumb:

    JJ :Cool:

    Sorry to miss you Toffee Fan but might catch you when I get back... towards end of March (ish)

    I enjoyed a great night here last night.

    An Off Site Motorhomers 3.75 out of 5 parking place.

    There is a steam, outside tables and seats, a bin and a natural water pipe just across the road.

    50 kms from Spanish Border...

    After quite a lot of this...


    [​IMG]



    I leave the land of the macho bull torturers (after being stopped by two nice, none macho policemen checking ID and vehicle papers)...


    and arrive in the land of stylish and beautiful women and wifi at quality restaurants...
