2017 hasn’t quite gone to plan so far. The book I started writing in January has gone back on my ‘to write’ pile until my characters play nicely again!
In February I started writing a new book with the working title of A Perfect Disaster. I’m almost halfway through the first draft & aim to finish it in a couple of weeks. It’s a story of meeting in unusual circumstances where first impressions aren’t always what they seem.
And a house move was due as I can’t seem to stay in one place longer than a year! This time the house move involved a different country too – Spain. So with the house packed up & Barney on the back seat of the car we took a road trip across Europe to our new home.
From Lancashire to Folkestone where we spent the night so we could catch the Eurotunnel the next morning. 298 miles.
After half an hour on the Eurotunnel we drove across France to spend the night in a quirky hotel not far from Bordeaux. 562 miles.
Day 3 – From France we drove across the border into Spain. Through the beautiful countryside of the Basque region and spent the night just north of Madrid. 399 miles.
Day 4 – We drove around the outskirts of Madrid then through the Toledo region where we took an intentional detour onto a more scenic road 😉 Across the Castilla la Mancha region to finally reach Andalusia. 428 miles.
In total approximately 1,687 miles. A tiring relocation, but the view made it all worthwhile.
