First week of travel

I’ve been living in the van for just over a week and have travelled 1400 miles from England to Spain.

I have a couple of mates (Matt and Ross) with me so the van is at full capacity and has certainly taken a beating climbing through the Spanish mountains. I’ve used a fair bit of this time testing the van and fixing any problems as they come along.

Staying anywhere you like the look of (for free) is the best thing ever

We stayed in the Spanish mountains for a couple of nights. We arrived in the dark so didn’t really know what was around us. I got up to move the van at 7.45am (I was being rather cautious) but got so distracted by the amazing sunrise over the mountains I ended up spending the next hour taking photographs.

Arriving at a ‘wild’ spot in the dark often brings a nice surprise in the morning. I cannot wait to get up and see where I am. Check this out:

Distance travelled

We have been moving quite fast through France – I’d rather be as far south as possible for the winter and I would also like to have the possibly of getting to Morroco before the heat gets unbearable. We avoided toll roads with the only exception when we crossed the Pyrenees into Spain to avoid some crazy hills.

Im quite behind on blog posts due to been offline for a full week but I’ll catch up soon.
