A lovely day’s walk dreaming of being King of a castle… waiting on a massive lottery win!

The summer holidays are upon us!



Setting off from London to catch the Dover-Calais ferry on Monday 29th July and continuing onto Bordeaux for two sleeps. Then heading up through the Pyrenees, stopping off at Zaragoza or Pamplona for one sleep before the final leg to Lisbon.

A week under canvas south of Lisbon then the return leg of the journey via Seville, Cordoba, Granada, Barcelona and Paris…

I am used to long road trips but I am hoping a Kindle fire, plenty of story books and photography out the back window will keep a 7 year old happy!?
