Spain

Our first destination in March 2016 as we embarked on what we thought would be a year long trip was just as cold, wet and windy as Plymouth. Well it was in Santander and the north and middle plains. But we soon got into the travel bug and headed down through Burgos, Segovia and Salamanca on our way south to warmer climes. What we discovered is that if you stay away from the costas Spain is full of historical richness dating back to battles with the moors, the muslims and the romans. Historical architecture is all around and what a wonderful introduction we had to our travels. Since then we have turned several times, winterising on the east coast but still like to find new places to discover and Spain hasn’t let us down yet.
