Sunday 10th February 2019, we left El Rocío and pointed Jemima north again towards Seville, as there are no roads through the eastern side of “Parque Nacional de Doñana”. Jerez de la Frontera (pronounced Herez), is where all the Sherry is made and we wanted to go there. It is just the other side of … More Zigging and Zagging in Spain
Tuesday 5th February 2019. After successfully purchasing the new fresh water pump in Ayamonte we headed for El Rocío which Chris & Fred had said was a “must visit” place.

Friday 21st December 2018: Off we go again on our annual escape to the south to find more sun, although the local forecast is good, it does get cold in the South of France.

Yes Jemima the Hymer has a baby sister. Last year we sold our electric bikes to another MotorHomeFun.co.uk Funster, I hope they are enjoying them. We were not getting the use from them as there were always hills in our way just a bit too steep for the motor. And our friends Fred & Chris … More Jemima gets a baby sister–“Suzie”
What would we do without the internet? It’s the biggest library in the world, It’s also the biggest time-waster in the world too. But, it has become essential to life, or so it appears. The law says we have to pay our taxes online, both the UK and France and probably most other western countries. … More Computer says NO!….
