We spent the weekend at AO16 my favorite overlander event of the year. We were a display vehicle and lots of folk wanted to come in and have a look around.
Overland Sphere with some very interesting discussion groups.
All in all a top weekend....roll on next year.

The weather set in for a couple of days with rain.....what's that? We decided that as we had to make the break across Spain to Bordeaux we would do it now. We stopped in Salamanca and then Vitoria Spain does have a lot of nothing between these beautiful cities.
Just before we crossed the border into France we met a Dutch couple travelling Europe in this beautiful truck camper......it was very old......the same age as me!
We then arrived in Montalievet
There are great places to camp in the forest
We met a young couple travelling in their VW climbing and surfing their way to Italy. Milton and Emelda set up a tightrope so we just had to give it a go.

We moved along the border region which is called Alentejo "beautiful and mountainous" to a mountain top walled town of Marvao.
We met up with an Austrian couple in a very interesting 4x4 completely home built motorhome.
They had travelled widely even shipping to Australia and then driving the whole way back. Their sights are now firmly set on South America.
We found a beautiful place to park, very quiet, a little shade from the tree, and a beautiful view.

Time has come to start the journey to Bordeaux so we headed north and found ourselves in the delightful market square in Estremoz.

Well from our spot in Portimao we headed out into the Sintra-Cascais National park and eventually to Cabo de Sao Vicente.
We also met up with some great people, Marco and Martin in their fantastic self build truck campers
