Been here a couple of days now, the drive from the port at Bilbao to our villa just outside Valencia was great (apart from the rain). Took six hours but the roads were so good, and virtually empty, it was a cracking drive.

I'm finding it much easier to drive around here in my own car rather than in a hire car which I did last year. I've just had a bit of a roof down blast around, I was meant to be shopping but all the supermarkets were closed so it ended up as just a drive out!

I think the car looks very comfortable in the grounds of our villa!

Glad you made it safe and sound. Enjoy!

More fotos while you're there please! (and maybe some restaurant / food / wine discoveries)

We have just found out why the shops were closed. Apparently it's what's known as "Drunks Day" here, they cordon off several streets in the town and people turn up in knackered old cars and drive around drunk!! Absolutely mad!

It does explain why when I was out earlier I was waved at and whistled at by a group of blokes in what looked like a big old quad bike!

I don't think we'll be doing restaurants, the whole point of this holiday is to see how we'll get on living here, so I'm cooking most days, although we will have lunch out a few times before we go home.

We have only just sorted out a decent mobile internet connection (o2 were ripping us off with an over priced rubbish data connection) so there will be more photos to come.

Taken from the dash camera on the way back earlier. I have found that being on the right hand side of the car makes it much easier to keep my road position, it was a nightmare last year.

We may be able to rent this house for six months later this year, I'm hoping so, as it's lovely and located ideally for our needs.
