The drive down from England to the apartment just outside Barcelona gave me great confidence in the motorhome. There are a few small items I’ll have to get a local garage to take a look at (wiper blades, a few external light bulbs, topping up the air-con and some dust on the suspension) but nothing major. She drives really well and it took no time to get used to the new size!
I found a perfect spot RIGHT outside the apartment’s loading gate, could not be more perfect, and instantly had a few of the neighbours over for a nose-about 🙂 All of them very excited and envious!
So the rather daunting task of making sure I pack in her ONLY what I really need, starts. I have local furniture storage arranged and I’ll have to be ruthless – you don’t want to overload and I’m trying to follow my own rules when I pack for traveling, which is to unpack whatever you’ve packed and then only take half of that….we’ll see how it goes.
I still have to pinch myself to think the motorhome is here, she’s mine and we’re (almost) ready to go!
Target date for moving out of the apartment is 26 May, with the first trip being the McArdles coming to visit and we’ll go to a campsite in Tarragona. I also have the small issue of a company team retreat in Lisbon to engage with … we can’t make this too easy now, can we?! I’m back from that trip 18 May, then the serious packing and moving starts.
