We left blighty on sat morn at 0600. we got no sleep at all friday night, so once we had done a few hours driving, we shut down for a couple of hours kip. We then continued on to Bordueax, and stayed overnight ona motorway aire (no problems). In the morning we carried on until we got to the aire at Biarritz. we were lucky to get on, it was rammed and people were still coming in to have a try. We went and sat on thre beach in the dark before bedtime, then left about 10am. The plod are supposed to collect the 10e charge between 1900-2000, but they did,nt materialise, maybe 'cos it was sunday?? Monday morningsaw us off again for a long boot across spain. The A1 motorway is bleddy brilliant if you wan to munch some miles, and mostly free. I beggared it up a bit on the new road system surrounding Madrid, so decided to call it a night and pulled in at an empty campsite who allowed us on. After topping up and emptying out, and a shower,....we shall be off in the morning to finish the jaunt toCabo da roca in Portugal, from there, we intend to visitPeniche, Figueira de foz and along the coast ustil we need to head for either the boat , or a drive home. At the moment, its looking like costing us 320e, plus tommorrows tolls, so I,ll contact B rittany ferries and see whats on offer. Heard some scare stories about Portugese tolls while in Biarritz, but i,ll find out when i get there.
