26th October 2014
I am sitting writing this at Cap Finisterre, the most westerly point of Main Europe after what has been a thoroughly enjoyable first month of our travels.
Where have we been?

City: San Sebastian; Stunning location, stylish, great food (Gijon we also liked)
Town: Foz; Beautiful location, great cycle tracks, cool beach bars
View: Riano; A view that must be in the top ten in Europe
City: A Coruna: A couple of pleasant streets but apart from that think Portsmouth in the rain.
Santander looked like a complete cesspit and we didn’t bother to visit
It is so much cheaper than the UK, whether food, diesel, campsites, trains. Anything and everything is cheaper here. Spending the first two weeks with Neil and Laura. Good laugh as always
Everyone is friendlier than in Blighty and far more relaxed. No uptight, mobile phone obsessed morons here.
We have no TV. Weather great, still high twenties at the end of October.
Nothing really. The women never stop talking and they are loud, but apart from that, nada.
Miss about Britain
Apart from Family and Friends, absolutely nothing, not a sausage, least of all work. If anybody ever says how can you retire? You will miss work, blah, blah, blah then pity them. We are having the best time of our lives and we have no work and minimal possessions and we love it. We don’t plan and we don’t let anything phase us.
Stuff we have dumped
Charcoal BBQ. Too much space with coal etc. kept the grid in case
Canvas Chairs, always wet in the mornings, impossible to get dry.
Things we would like to dump
Sleeping bags, suitcase, table.
