    We are currently 6mths in to a 9th trip in Europe we travelled down the west coast of France into Spain and Portugal and have been working our way north along the Spanish south coast, we are now in Barcelona. Our dilemma is... do we carry on North and into South of France where the weather isn't looking good and is cold with storms predicted do we just bite the bullet to see Nice Cannes etc which is currently our plan or do we head back down south to warmer climes and work our way home ending up at Santander? We are due home beg of May. Any help from funsters that have been on this route this time of year would be much appreciated!

    More than enough to see in central Spain, it's not all about the seaside!

    Heavy snow just North of Valencia, roads are blocked and snowplows working. Benidorm cold and wet and windy. Stay where you are till next week then decide.

    OK in Cartagena....bit of a chilly wind (12 deg C) but dry, and forecast to improve steadily from the west.
