Well this is alright! Camping right by Lake Maggiore. Even a little beach here, but not hot enough to warrant a swim.

Wednesday 19 June 2024

Dawn stroll at Diano Marina. Beach culture in Italy is bit of a shock for us Aussies. I just don't get it! sad

Made it to the Med! We don't really do beach (too flat) But plus side: it's a bit warmer here! Swings/roundabouts wink

Walk on the beach near Facho (Portugal). Bit grey & windy, but there's still fun to be had looking for treasure! wink

Friday 23 October 2015

Another deserted Spanish beach. This is Playa de la Griega, our lunch (well, very late lunch) stop for the day.

Friday 23 October 2015

The rather rocky & wind-swept beach at Vega. Only 1 sole surfer braving the elements here. Oh, & me (not Pratiwi!) tongue

Hola España! Not a bad spot nor day for a first Spanish encounter. May they all be as sunny & picturesque as this! smile
