    It's seemed an awful long time coming, but today we set off for our new life in Lanzarote.
    The last few weeks have been frantic. Loads of legal and financial shit to deal with. And deciding what goes with us. We had 5 trips to council dump. We were quite ruthless.


    I have a hospital appointment this afternoon, then we'll chuck the boxes in the van, put bike on trailer, and were off :).

    Heading to get to Cartegena for next Friday - 3 days on track. Then ferry from Cadiz the Tuesday after.

    Adios amigos :)

    Wishing you every success in the new adventure, just remember to keep us in the frame when enjoying a cool beer watching the sunset over the sea.

    Good luck and by coincidence I am with some remote relatives at the moment who live in Lanzerote, she is British but his family have lived there for several generations.

    All I have learned is it has been very hot there recently, 34C on Tuesday, but that was exceptional apparently, and their winter will start around mid January and end in March. Perhaps of more interest they say things are really buzzing there now after several years of recession.

    Down side they say there is no point in having a MH there! They have toured Spain in a MH but the ferry cost from Cadiz is too high to make it worthwhile keeping one on the island.
