The Weary Travellers Are Home!

16 Mar

Five months after starting on another project, we’re home back Up Our Mountain. Smile. Breathe In. Breathe Out.

Burgos Cathedral By Day

Burgos Cathedral

We took a slow drive home via Bordeaux, Biarritz and Burgos. Seems we only visited places beginning with the letter B! Just playing catch up with life, blogs, family and home. Normal service will be resumed soon, thanks for bearing with me…I’ve missed you all.

    I always wanted to go to Burgos, not least for the morcilla.
    I bet it’s great to be home 🙂

    • Chica Andaluza March 17, 2014 at 08:50 #

      We ate loads of morcilla and bought two home with us 🙂

      Oh they are – running around all over the place. They were so good though during the renovations and the travel. Perfectly Portable Pups!

    […] we now take 3 or 4 days and pick new places to stop and enjoy. We’ve loved Bordeaux, Biarritz and Burgos. This time we pulled off the motorway south of Madrid, pretty much slap bang in the middle of Spain […]

I love to hear what you think, please leave me a comment!
