Saturday 17th February 2018. Leaving the Vinuela lake/reservoir we pointed TomTom to a wild camping spot near Salobrenna about 70 km away, (N36.74047, W3.59545). We found it last year and thought it was a good spot from where we could walk along the beach into the town for a nice meal.

Thursday 15th February 2018 We left the Camper Parking early, after emptying down and filling up with water. Thanks again Antequera for providing such a good facility for us.

We found a gas station in Portimao on the internet but no coordinates just an address. After driving through some tiny roads no gas station materialised so we … More TV Chaos near Albufeira
Wednesday 31st January 2018 After our quick getaway from the really nice Lagos Camper Stop, after the battery alarm went off, we arrived at Alvor one at 10am just a 20km drive. Not a lot different just a large clay area with Motorhomes everywhere. Steve walked around, cables were stretching all over the place from … More Alvor, A Walking Paradise
Monday 22nd January 2018 It was only 41km from Barragem do Arade to Lagos but the one thing we needed most was GAS but we saw none! Technical Interlude: Because we travel to and through so many countries and need bottled gas for our cooking, heating and to run the fridge it can become a … More No Morning Cuppa in Lagos!
Sorry this post is a bit late. I am playing catch-up as I was late starting this trip’s Blog because I thought we would not be touring so much this year. But then I started getting emails; “Where is the Blog?” so I made a start, but then as I said in the last post … More The Barragems
