This was not the plan, as those who follow this blog closely will know, but we both got fed up waiting for the sale of our bit of land so we could upgrade ‘Me Van Oui’ that we gave the bullet a big bite and set off for some fun in the sun.
We left our mooring at St Leger Sunday afternoon after much huffing and puffing and set off for our first stop somewhere on the Central Massive. We eventually pulled into a service station near Millau and woke to a very cold scene, it had actually snowed overnight.
We were very cosy in the van overnight so no problem but it was still a shock to wake uo to this scene as the main reason for coming away was to head for warmer climes!!
Eventually we dropped down to sea level and crossed the Spanish border without incident. The 2nd night we spent in another motorway service area and on Tuesday we found our first proper camp site and we will rest up here for a few days before planning our route to Portugal.
