Gibraltar Weekend May 2022

Well, I’m doing things in reverse this time around – I normal write our review and then make a video, and for our recent trip to Gibraltar I’ve started on the video.

So here it is, part 1 – I will explain the distinct absence of monkeys later!

It’s a “No'” for 5229 Oakbourne Avenue, Solterra.

Welcome to our review of “Dean’s Villa”, 5229 Oakbourne Avenue, Solterra Resort, Davenport Florida.

I’m going to start by saying we had a problem with the booking – a quite major one. And it would be easy for you to assume therefore that our opinion of the villa was somewhat skewed and malicious as a consequence.

Irish Tour Day 6

We are nearing the end of our week in Ireland.  We’ve seen cities, towns, village, countryside, seaside, fields, mountains.    And although it’s been fairly relaxed, when I planned the tour back in December 2018, I thought it would be prudent to take a break from the driving.   So, no destination tonight, we’re stopping two nights on the shores of Lough Corrib, and touring the west side of the country.

Irish Tour Day 5

So far we’ve circumnavigated the east and south coast of Ireland, and now we are heading north. After a short meander along the west coast we have headed back inland and we are now in Muckross, County Kerry. Today is our longest driving leg of the journey, some 220km to our next stop north of Galway.

I’m continuing our journey across Ireland with Sue and friends Joe and Renata from Czechia; today we are heading along the south coast before heading north towards our next destination of Muckross, just outside Killarney, a journey that is to prove a bit of a surprise to us all.
