Overflowing with emotion!
I've had a roller coaster couple of weeks, not only did I celebrate my birthday with typical Portuguese fare of sardines and sea bass all sourced locally from the crystal blue waters of Nazare, which had been my home for the past month or so. The meal was prepared by a wonderful French importee and… Lire la suite Overflowing with emotion!
Driving my Ziggy
Every journey is an adventure! I've always loved driving, although driving Ziggy has presented me with a few irritating issues, the main one being my map reading skills. When driving alone everything rests on my shoulders, my latest journey leaving Porto heading south started by going north, I only realised my error some 45 minutes… Lire la suite Driving my Ziggy
Time to write

The Blue Beast This is not so much of a story, it's more like a play-by-play commentary of the changes that Ziggy has undergone since we met. Transforming the Blue Beast to Ziggy should have been a relatively easy task, why? Because the van was kitted out with everything your average person would need; bed,… Lire la suite The make-over

Destination Unknown: The dream

I'd like to have people follow me, keep me company so to speak, people who are interested… Lire la suite Destination Unknown: The dream
