Time to leave England for a few weeks and head back Up the Mountain.
The kilometers flying past through French fields of gold.
A pit stop in Spain and time to explore the beautiful little town of Aranda de Duero.
Then home, to amazing skies. Time to reconnect with our Spanish family and friends. Happy May Day to you all!

Aranda de Duero looks beautiful – Happy May Day 🙂
Small but lovely!
what a wonderful sky! Happy May Da to you, too!
Beautiful! Love your photos. We’re headed to the UK this week and we can not wait.
Have a wonderful trip!
Thank you! It will be good to be back. 😊
It looks stunning Ms Chica. Pardon me for asking, but as a far flung antipodean to the events going on in your neck of the woods I am curious…is Brexit going to cause you any problems travelling back and forth to your home in Spain?
I’m not sure. All rather worrying. Not sure how it’s going to effect either of us. Worst case I’ll just have to renew my Italian passport! Fingers crossed we’re all just worrying for nothing. Hope all is well with you two 😀
Five days to go by our mornings and nights! We may be ‘at the ends of the earth’ but we are worrying too!
Hunky dory Ms Chica. Stevieboy and I have just managed to nail down our footage for our documentaries and are just about to start the dreaded ‘edit’ to make our short doco’s so all’s on track for our course and it’s getting cold here, 2C this morning, so we are starting to settle into our winter routine with Brunhilda bringing up the rear and keeping us warm, well fed and content. Good luck with the Brexit thing and hopefully nothing untoward occurs that prevents you travelling like you do. I know it is both necessary and a joy for you both 🙂
Stay warm and hopefully we’ll stay mobile!
Here here! 🙂
Wonderful! Have a fabulous time reconnecting with your Spanish family and friends.
Sending you love and hugs from Kenya. Pete and I back in Nairobi after our glorious longweekend away in Diani.
🙂 Mandy xo
So glad you got to spend some quality time together in such a wonderful place!
Beautiful photographs Chica. Enjoy your time on your mountain 🙂
Great pictures, what an amazing mood. Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend!
Beautiful! We’re planning to drive up from Benalmadena to Ipswich and I’m seeing two different routes – any advice or recommendations? It will be my husband and I and our 3 year old. No animals. We definitely want to stop a bit, but are on a rather tight budget. Any insight or websites to look at would be really appreciated! Thank you!
You’ll have fun! Going from Spain to the UK we often stop in Burgos. The city is lovely and the drive from the south is good for the first day. We use Hotel Cordon which I think is about 50 euro. Parking is either off street or in a public Parking. In France you can make 1 or 2 stops depending on how many hours you want to drive. We head up the west coast towards Bordeaux (lovely!) and often stop in Niort or Le Mans. If you’re on a really tight budget, in France you could use Premier Classe Motels. Super basic but clean and can sleep 3 for about 40 euro if you book ahead. We then drive to Calais and cross on the ferry as we are glad of a little break after so much driving. Please e-mail me if I can help any more!
How are you doing, darlin? I thought I’d already commented on here 😦
So much better thank you. Time helps heal most things gently. Thanks for thinking of me xx
I am sure you are enjoying being in your other home! Hope the weather stays good for you 🙂
Hope you are doing well. Love the photo of that beautiful sky. I’m sure you are enjoying your time back in Spain and reconnecting with everyone.
Welcome back. Sorry beyond words for your loss but delighted you shared this journey… thank you!
