Goodbye Portugal, hello Spain...Again !

We said goodbye to Portugal this morning, or rather we began to say goodbye to Portugal this morning, but it was quite a long goodbye and by the time we eventually crossed the border into Spain it was 15.35 !. We have now covered a total today of some 540 miles, with another 50 to do before we eventually reach our stop off for the night just north of Valladolid. We had a slight detour earlier around Lisboa when we decided to (unsuccessfully !) try and get a tour of the VW factory at Palmela were they are making the new was closed !.

Today we have spent around 150 Euro's on road tolls, food,drink and fuel, and to be honest we are really hoping that the campsite we are heading for is A) going to be open B) have some room for us and C) be nice and peaceful !.

Graham and his family looked after us well for the last day and a half, and for that we are eternally grateful...especially the fact that he not only booked, but paid for the 2 nights accommodation in Silves....Oh the bliss of having a real bed to lie on :-).

In the morning we will be pushing on to clear Spain, then back into France for the last European leg of our challenge.Should be fun !
