Greetings from Spain

Post by brummiedeano » Thu Mar 28, 2013 10:53 pm

Well after a pretty calm cruise through the bay of biscay we arrived in Spain. The weather in the region has been quite bad for the first few days and turned several of the tracks we were driving into complete mud bogs requiring some recoveries via rope and also our winches got a good work out too ! Due to the amount of rain some of the tracks have also been destroyed by landslides or been completely washed out. Really hot today once we got through the mountains. Day of tomorrow enjoying the easter siesta in the local town :-)

Hope things are drying out for you (don't mean the bars or other watering holes!).

I'm Normandy bound on Sunday for a week
