10 October 2014: UPDATE – The blogs from Durdle Door day 2 (10 September 2014) up to 10th October 2014 are now being added but will appear in date order so you may need to scroll down to get the latest blogs covering this period
The new tech equipment arrived at 16:15 hours on Monday 29 September
Since arriving from the UK – thanks to Martin, Jill and Alex – the following changes have been made:
The ‘Live Map’ has been updated to include our current location in Biarritz in the south west of France.
The ‘Running Costs’ page has been updated to 30 September 2014.
A new page, ‘Sites’ has been added showing a summary and details of our ‘stays’ since we began full-timing.
A new page ‘MPG Analysis’ has been added showing a summary and details of Twernt’s fuel costs since we began full-timing.
All that remains now is to complete the blog entries since day 2 of Durdle Door and this will be completed in the next week or so.
Our Mifi internet has been weak in France and will be somewhere between spasmodic and non-existent once we leave France.
For this reason we have decided to ‘hoof’ it down to Sagres, the western tip of the Algarve and sort out a Portuguese data sim card that will see us through until close to Christmas when we will be at Salobrena in Spain.
We ‘toyed’ with crawling down the eastern coastline of Spain leading up to Christmas but chose Portugal first as we can then resolve Wifi issues in two ‘parcels’ – Portugal until early December and then in Spain for the duration.
We haven’t attempted to tune the TV in since leaving England and don’t miss it but the internet is a must and it’s the hub of our comms ‘systems’ – notwithstanding Amanda needing her fix on Facebook, etc.
That’s all in this brief update, pictures and blogs will follow as soon as we hit the Algarve sometime in the next 7 days.
Oh, almost forgot to say, the weather has been terrific and we’re thoroughly enjoying our trip – more in the blogs
