The last couple of nights we spent on a campsite just outside Bordeaux, where it rained and rained! Dean needed a break from driving as his old problem of his elbow has come back to haunt him, so we just did nothing except watch Gavin & Stacey back to back.
Monday we ventured into Spain and headed for an ACSI campsite (www.CAMPINGCARD.com) in Haro, the Roija region of Spain. Halfway through the journey we stopped to refuel, both the ‘van and us. We called into a motorway ‘cafe’ where we had some very tasty Bocadillo (sandwiches) then we checked our route and set off again.
I (Angela) helped out with some of the driving today and we made the journey in about 6.5 hours. The lady in reception was very welcoming but didn’t want to listen to my feeble attempts at Spanish so we got ourselves pitched quickly and went for a walk into the town. At first nothing was open but as the hour of five approached the town started to come alive, so we went and bought some vey nice Rioja wine and some food and wandered back to the site after a mooch around the town.
They had some lovely street art in Haro and the town had a very welcoming feel to it. It is obvious we’re tourists especially as we’re now blond but we were treated very nicely and were made to feel relaxed.
When we got back to the site we met a lovely Scottish couple who were on their way back to the UK, having spent four months out here.
