After 3 weeks in the tent, chased across Europe by rain, we make it to the Spanish border this week! Two stops & then on to our final destination.
As we’d changed our plans in France due to bad weather, we took a look at the map & picked somewhere new to stay. Having heard about Estartit from people in the past with holiday homes, we thought we’d take a look.
Not a cloud in the sky, & crystal clear sea, it made a welcome change from the bad weather we had endured so far.
Having eaten mostly camp stove meals, we couldn’t wait to try some real tapas & a Cruz Campo beer; so we ordered a mix including Chipirones (baby squid) & Patatas Bravas.
Day 4-6 – Benicàssim
Located approx 13 km north of the city of Castellón & also nearby Valencia, the name Benicàssim orginates from Arabic and translates as: children of Cassim.
The town has a history as a top resort around the 1920’s; what makes it really special are the wonderful late 19th and early 20th century villas that line the seafront ‘Ruta De Villas’.
The beautiful villas, by the sea, detail the lifestyle of the roaring twenties, and some of the amazing parties that were supposedly hosted in here.
Day 7 – 28 days of travel (27 nights in the tent) has been enough for our European adventure & we head for San Juan De Los Terreros, where we will make our home for a few months.

After a 4.5 hr drive we arrive to face the mammoth task of unpacking.
