Driving home for Christmas



Vienna Rathaus

Every year we go back to Austria for Christmas, this year we decided to take the caravan.

Weekends




Weekends or Escapadas as you would call it in Spanish, a fabulous word I think !
Read about the things we managed to do on our weekends!

On the way back home





After 3 weeks of holidays we were on the way home from Oviedo. After visting Santa Cristina de Lena near Pola de Lena south of Oviedo we drove on over Puerto de los Pajares at 1.300m and down to Leon, which we passed to stop at Astorga.

Oviedo and Pre-Romanesque Art

San Miguel de Lillo


The next part of our journey took us into the area of Oviedo where we went to admire the Pre-romanesque art.

Motorbeach Festival




Cafe racer & Surf, Classic Cars & Music

We found this festival online and it looked like fun so we went there. In the end we stayed the full four days and enjoyed it a lot. We were parked just 150m from the stage, with the music in full swing till 6am every day. There was a Wall of Death, a circuit for all kind of bikes, the beautiful beach, old cars and bikes, many stalls and food trucks with different kind of food. The music was great and the atmosphere very relaxed.

Here some impressions:

Costa Verde





When we left the Picos de Europa we drove down the Desfiladero de la Hermida until we reached the Atlantic at San Vicente de la Barquera following the coast eastwards, looking for a place near Playa de Oyambre to stay over night.

Cordiñanes de Valdeón
