Departure

For the first time with our ‘van we are going to head to southern Europe or more specifically the Iberian peninsula. Our objective is to visit Lisbon by travelling outwards through inland Spain before crossing into Portugal. Our homeward journey will follow the coast back through northern Spain.

The only fixed legs of the trip are the outward ferry from Poole to Cherbourg and the return ferry from St Malo to Portsmouth.

Who knows what will we see on our travels but hopefully we can share our experiences with you via this blog.
