Hi folks, we have just arrived in Oliva on the East coast of Spain (just South of Valencia) after staying in Portugal and in El Escorial outside of Madrid. On the best campsite so far: 20 yards from the beach, lovely pool and spa, own marina and restaurant and WiFi access in the van (no i'm not knocking one out!) but alas it's pissing down.
Have had good weather for the last week so mustn't grumble and the lass in reception (proper tidy) said it would improve. It is still low season so not all the amenities are open on most sites and they are generally quiet, looking forward to it picking up a bit. A day in Madrid has been the highlight of the last week, really interesting and busy (wall to wall as well) would like to go there for a few nights with friends and really enjoy it.
Hope everyone is well, miss ya's. CG


Well what can I say, weather had been great this past week but the rain started last night and has continued today. Hopefully it will get better tomorrow as we have arrived at a new site today that is lovely and I want to be back on the beach! Mosquitos had had a fair nibble on both me and Clag when we were on a couple of campsites inland but think they prefer gingers as he has definitely got more than me.

Missing everyone.......haven't been drunk for over 2 weeks now and haven't had a cigarette for that long either.......haven't lost any weight yet as can't stop being naughty but I am walking every day which is the most exercise I have done, ever.......one positive is that I have got a little bit of colour to the skin now though so am not quite like a milk bottle anymore! Hope to hear from some of you guys soon......comments are always welcome, even the bad ones. FG

No drink or cigs for 2 weeks - impressed! Very jealous of your adventure. Weather here has been picking up a bit too but it's not the same when you have to go to work!
Not long til you're back for B&D's wedding, look forward to catching up :-)
