We had a really lovely 5 days in the Picos de Europas with my parents, staying in a tiny medieval hamlet called Tudes with my Dad’s cousin Tony and family. Some (cable-car assisted) mountaineering, lots of sight-seeing, eating and of course drinking in Tony’s bar!

Leaving Mum and Dad in Santander, we headed south spending a night in Madrid visiting a few of our favourite Tapas bars before carrying on down to the warmth of Medina Sidonia last Wednesday.

We've been enjoying the sunshine, a few storms, a little exploring and plenty of relaxing so far. After five months of travelling the idea of having our own space and staying put in one place for a while is very agreeable!

Looking forward to seeing those of you planning on paying us a visit!


  1. Oh looks lovely, wish I could come visit! Hoping to maybe go over to see Josh in C'hagen tho so that should be cool. Glad you got everything sorted with allotment. Great to see you the other week. Have fun en Espana. Lots love to you both xxx (Kelly!)

  2. That's pretty much exactly what Newcastle looks like this week. xx

  3. Looks beautiful, hope you're having fun! I know you'd rather be in Swindon really, but I suppose Spain is an acceptable substitute.

    I think Santander is the name of my bank, can you ask them to stop sending me letters please!
