Well now back home with photos, memories and a few bottles of Sangria and Cava. We had a great time with Deg and Jo and the Lowies with their Ribquests. Also see from Facebook that Nic Brown is in Emporiabrava where we also had a run round.

Just a few photos of our trip

Did you drive through the cave? I love it there.

I'm intersted to know the trip route the guys took too. For me, the last couple of trips I have done it non stop overnight. Catching approx 7pm ferry and arriving just after lunch time next day. Mainly because I am not sure what hotels on the way have space for my car and trailer. My route is Dover to calais. Then around Paris (usually middle of the night ) and the south over the central massive to Bezier on the Med. The head west along the coat to the Spanish border. I stay 30 mins into Spain in the bay of Rosas just around the corner from these guys. I can't do another overnighter. It's exhausting and especially as I have to go and get my caravan from storage when I get there and set all that up too.

Dubrus/Chillee

We left Stoke on Trent at 0930 crossed via the tunnel about 1730 and headed to Paris. We went round Paris and headed to Clermont. We stopped at a number service stations enroute. The plan was to park up and have a sleep but we carried on. Went over the Millau Bridge as it was getting light. We had breakfast just after Bezier and carried on into Spain. we arrived in L,Estartit in the afternoon. It was about 1000 miles and took us 26 hours.

We did a similar trip back. Left at 0800 and arrived back in Stoke 0900 the following day. Same route around Paris.

There was a lot of traffic both going down and coming back. We were travelling in the peak time.

Yes we drove through the cave several times. We also went to Emporia Brava which would be a great base if you could get a villa with a mooring at the bottom of the garden! Nic Brown with Buddyman was there just after us

Between L'estsrtit and bay of Rosas. L'estsrtit has an amazing nature reserve just off the coast from the Marina. Great snorkeling
