Complications – Roscoff, Normandy

It’s been a bit quiet on the blog front for a couple of weeks whilst we concentrated on Lizzy’s recuperation from her cataract surgery on the shores of Arcachon Bay. The weather was kind and the first week went smoothly with little walks round the marina and watching the kite surfers on the beach (beach’s…

Krug Off-Road Weekend – Biberach, Germany

We have for 2 years been investigating our future in terms of overlanding travel.
