When we left our camp site in Tarragona, which was only a couple of metres away from the beach, we had left just in time.  It was starting to rain….the first time I had felt rain since I had been in England in January!

Back on the road, we were about 100 miles from the border with France.  The scenery was beautiful, the small hills rolled like the waves of the southern ocean, and the Pryenees could be seen from miles on end.  The trees dotted the side of the roads, and even the coast could been seen on the other side…

We were all looking forward to be leaving Spain, since we had been in the country for 6 months!  Leaving Spain though caused a big problem, mother wanted a Torro (Bulls) sticker to stick on the back of the truck.  For half an hour, we were searching every….EVERY, petrol station looking for a a small sticker to put on the truck!  This search was soon called off though, because we ran out of petrol stations to look in.

Eventually, we reached France, and immediatly mother wanted a  large farm house in the middle of a field- (And remember, mum also wants a cave house in the Sierra Nevadas ) – at last though, we had left ESPANA!

After leaving Spain, the clouds were still in the sky, and the rain drops littered the ground. Soon, we reached a place we were thinking of staying called, the Cote d’Adge.

Soon we had pitched our tent ( mum and I have got it down to a fine art, ten minutes tops!) and parked the car at a camp site called, Les Romarins, just outside the Cote d’ Adge.

We took the dogs for a walk into the town and I tried some of the local donut-like-pastry things, called a Churro.  However, whilst walking through the town we discovered a Torro sticker and bought it for the truck.  We came back to the campsite and ate at the restaurant, there. We are having a lovely time… Tres fantastique!

I am a 14 year old boy and live and am home schooled by my parents aboard our 45 foot sailing yacht which we sail from Turkey. I have travelled through/ across Europe by road, several times now, and have also driven into the heart of Turkey, visiting Konya, Cappadocia and many other places. You can read about both of these experiences on the blog... However, at the moment you can read about our life aboard our yacht in Turkey during the winter... I hope you can come along for the ride, then sail along with me as I blog my sailing adventures for next year!

One thought on “ESPANA IS FINISHED!”

  1. Wow a few days escaped me there. We have escaped the hydrangeas and blabbing out in Taupo for couple of nights with nothing planed but eat drink and watch the lake so have loved reading joe your journey. And now he cooks my breakfast!!! You are a superb story teller. We recognise lots of those areas and feel like we are there with you. Well done. I am plotting your course on google my maps. Awaiting the next. Xx
