The intended use for our motor home was always to use it to escape from the worst of the British winter. We take delivery this Thursday, but until we sort out our remaining obligations to our narrowboat, we intend to use it for the remainder of this year week-ending and holidaying throughout the UK. This should also allow us to get used to how everything works, as well as ironing out any teething troubles.
However, once the end of summer next year comes our intention is to cross into mainland Europe to chase the sun, and the best place to do that at that time of year is Southern Spain. The area we have visited many times in the past is the only area within Europe to be officially designated as desert. The weather, including rainfall, that comes from the west is usually dumped over the Sierra Nevada's, leaving the Cabo de Gata Natural Park dry and sunny for most of the year.
Our intended route will be via Brittany Ferries from Portsmouth to Santander, travel through Spain with an overnight stay around Madrid, to arrive at our destination after 4 day's travel in total from home, including the overnight ferry crossing.
