Weekend in Devizes

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

The shopping day

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.

An even longer bimble

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

Just a bimble

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

And back again

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

Blogger…

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…  ?

Now photos, for us, are a big part of our blogs… Mainly because my words cannot describe adequately the stunning views we get to see.  This blog hosted … Read more

That’s Paris booked then

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 🙂
