‘Part 1’ can be found here: Summer ’16 Europe Adventure: July
Revisiting many of our favourite Sussex haunts & a fantastic visit to The Chilli Fiesta.
Days 8- 17
We were fortunate to house/pet sit in Brighton for the remainder of our stay in the UK. This enabled us to explore our old City & take some trips to London.
If you fancy a walking tour of London here is a link to a previous article
We left the UK from Newhaven to Dieppe on the overnight ferry on Wednesday 17th. Our first stop was Chenonceaux for 2 nights & then a further stop in Hendaye, France before crossing the border into Spain.
Days 21-28 near Villavicosia, Asturias Spain
We arrived late afternoon after travelling through the amazing scenery of los Picos de Europa in Cantabria & Asturias.
We booked a casa rural through Airbnb in the countryside near Villavicosia.
Days 28-31: Toledo
After the peace & quiet of Asturias, the bustle of city life in the peak of the summer season & heat of 37°, came as a shock.
Toledo is packed with history & culture but in hindsight, spring or autumn would perhaps be a better time to visit to enable sightseeing in a more comfortable climate.
