The storage space has been cleared! This is a huge step, trust me. I don’t know if you’ve ever had a storage place, but it is way easier to just keep it, and pay the monthly fee, than to try and clear it. (Must be a good business to be in!)
But now my storage place is empty and I could give notice, and I’m taking a few extra items I just could not throw away, to England. So we’re looking a bit like a proper “trek”, but so be it. I had to get a roofbox for the trailer to hold some of the extra items. It’s quite an innovative version as it’s soft, with a collapsible metal frame inside, and therefore should pack away nicely.
I’ve come to spend Christmas and New Year at one my favourite (out of season) spots, Bon Repos camping in Santa Susanna, about an hour north of Barcelona. One can get a spot on the beach, and whilst it’s cold at night, we’re experiencing brilliantly sunny, mild winter days which are super. There’s also plenty of good running track here, and all in, it’s a great spot.
As you can see, my view is straight onto the ocean.
Even better, the McArdles will join me from Friday, are staying at the apartments of the campsite, and we’ll see the New Year in from here.
A bit of a strange feeling, to think that, bar a few bags in the loft of friends in England, what I have on me now is all I own. It’s liberating, for sure, and scary at the same time. But there you go. Live of a Nomad!
Olli is already dreaming of all the places we’ll be seeing next year 🙂
Merry Christmas and best wishes for a super 2019.
