It was going to be a diary as I drove my Smart car with my cycle on the back from England south thru France, Spain , and then round back up thru Portugal and Spain again. Escaping the Winter in England, and investigating parts of France, Spain and Portugal, where I have never been before.
I experience, Snow, Robbery, Love of a Spanish woman, and amazing roads and Scenery. What a wonderful start to my first year of my retirement.
It all started way back on 28th November 2017.

Thursday 1st March - Smarty gets fixed and a bit of snow
Thursday 1st March - Smarty gets fixed and a bit of snow The next day I get up early and drive back up to Prestbury there is a bit of snow about. Drop my car of with Giles , from 4Smarts If anybody will fix if Giles will. He is a great Smart Mechanic.
I love the way he keeps his 2nd hand cars parked.
Get to work Giles.
It snows a bit over night
Breakfast and coffee In England not quite the same as in Seville, Spain
I go and collect Smarty from Giles all fixed and ready for the snow. Smarty's love the snow. the traction control is great , just floor it and it wiggles a little and just goes.
On the way back I stop off at The Royal Union.
I love the Pump Taps. And the beer inside them.
I hear that since I have been away Robin, the landlord's dogs have been busy and are going to be mum and dad in about three weeks time. How many will be black and how many white?
Not more Himalayan Pigeon retrievers in Cheltenham?
Smarty Home at my dads place, resting before taking me home back to Cambridgeshire when the snows melt.
