I have studied wiggleys quite a bit and even have a City and Guilds Full Tech in Telecom wiggleys British Telecom were in fact going to pay me to go to university, in the day, to study and get a degree … Read more
We got away to the Caravan and Camping Club site near Devizes for Easter and it was ideal. Not only did we manage to get away with friends but it was a great way to shake the van down for our Spanish trip at the end of April.
The site backs onto the Kennet and Avon Canal which … Read more

Today was always going to be a day of shopping. We started off at the Complexe D’Artisanat in Rue de la Kasbah. This is one of the few places in Morocco that you don’t barter. The prices are fixed and for some that is a real help. Personally I love a good bit of barter banter. Leaving surprisingly empty handed … Read more
Today was another day to just wander around this glorious city. We started off by heading towards Jewish quarter. We dropped by Dar Si Siad which is former palace / royal house that now houses Moroccan arts. The building itself is along the same theme inside as the Kasbah at Telouet and the Alahambra with ornate stucco that the crafts … Read more
Today was a later start… We updated yesterday’s trip on the blog and then just bimbled into town
A lunch at the main square was followed by a wander around the parks.
We managed to grab another geocache and a coffee…. it was all very slow and full of people watching.
Evening time took us back into Jemaa El Fna … Read more
An early start today as we were heading over the a High Atlas and back again in a day; luckily we were not driving but were able to book a car and driver for the day at a very reasonable rate. Younes from Ecovoyages Marrakech arrived promptly and by 7.30am we were clear of the city traffic and heading towards … Read more
Having visited most of the major sites in a Marrakech during previous visits, today we decided just to walk and see where we ended up whilst heading generally towards the east of the city. Things didn’t quite go to plan when we got lost in the souks but as there always seems to be a sign pointing towards the main … Read more
Having stopped at the Gatwick Hilton, with no free wifi in the room I may add, it was an early start to Marrakech taking off at 8.00. Made good time though arriving at 10.50, ahead of schedule.
Through passport control and onto Dar Romarra, the Riad we had used for a long weekend in October. We felt that with June’s … Read more
Ok not Belgium now…. We’re back off to Morocco. Thought a bit of warmth would be good for June’s arm.… Read more
Well as a result of a coming together of an arm and a glass door, resulting in a fractured arm, the Cuba trip’s destination has to be cancelled.
However the trip hasn’t … Belgium here we come……in the Motorhome… Read more
It is somewhere that June has always wanted to go to and, with the announcement that the US embargo may be removed, now seemed a good time. However we wanted something a little different so went to Explore and booked a trip that involves a bit of cycling, not that much but something a little different!
Can’t wait… Read more
Having just checked my Blogger page I found that it had several photos missing. Apparently it is something to do with moving to G+. Does anyone really use that at all… ?
There are more photos in the Morocco 2014 Album
Having been to Morocco twice before we were both really looking forward to returning with our friends Sarah and Colin. We had found a Riad called Dar Rocmarra in the Marrakech Medina that had some brilliant comments on Trip Advisor and ticked a lot of boxes for us.
Leaving early doors … Read more
Just parked up at the Grove Lock Campsite next to the Grand Union Canal. The plan this weekend is some friends will be making towards Grove Lock tomorrow on their narrow boat and we will meet them en route. We will all cruise back to Grove Lock where they will moor up. There will be a few beers downed I … Read more
Who says advertising on Twitter doesn’t work? Yesterday I received a tweet from EuroStar offering return to Paris from £59.
Well that was at 3.00 by 4.00, following a few emails back and forth between us, I had booked a long weekend for November. Can’t wait.
Don’t you just love being spontaneous 🙂
In a few weeks, together with a few fiends we are taking part in the Prince’s Trust Palace to Palace Ultra bike ride. 90 miles from Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle. This weekend was arrange to do a bit of training. Stopping at a campsite near Kingham we had the Cotswolds to play with 🙂
Overnight, as normal, we had a little rain but by the morning this had stopped and our journey home started. There is no doubt in June or my minds we will be returning. In fact when the time is right for us to live this lifestyle permanently, about 2020, we will be bouncing from mountain range to mountain range. We … Read more
I write this from a beautiful Aire at almost 2200 metres and with stunning views all around. But first can I have a little rant? There are two categories of motorists I detest; apart from killers of course, they are drivers who do not thank you for lettng them through and those that drive on the hard shoulder of a … Read more
