Welcome back. What a Summer it has been! We have been back in Ireland since you last heard from me at the end of July and as well as home and personal maintenance, more importantly we’ve had time to catch up with family and friends. I’m not sure where the last 7 weeks have gone but we blinked and now we are in the process of preparing Tigín our camper for her next adventure. Our initial destination is a part of the world we last explored on foot for 6 weeks in the Spring and early Summer of 2016. Any guesses?
Those of you who have followed my travels on this blog and Instagram will know that I’m of course referring to Northern Spain. On Friday night after hubby finishes his day job we will be loading up Tigín and making a B-line for Rosslare, Co. Wexford, in the South East corner of Ireland, to catch our late night ferry to Bilbao in Spain. The ferry is a mammoth thirty one hours through the Bay of Biscay which witnesses some of the fiercest weather conditions of the entire Atlantic Ocean. I’ll have everything crossed that we will get lucky and not encounter anything more than a bobble on the sea surface as my sea-legs are shaky at best.
For now the to do lists are overwhelming as the clock ticks down to our departure, but once we drive out of the front garden all the chaos will be behind us and we can relax into the next few months on the road. We would love to have you along for the journey as we explore the hidden and not so hidden gems of the Iberian Peninsula. We have no set itinerary and if anyone has suggestions or recommendations please don’t hesitate to reach out and let me know. There will be no blog on Saturday as we will be on the high seas but expect the normal Tuesday and Saturday upload schedule to resume from next week.
