Best Bit of Camping...
... is coming back to home comforts!
Think we can deem it a success, actually; today we all sort of wished we had another day or so. We were sleeping better and better, and getting used to the toilet trips. We talked about a next time... maybe, but we'd get better organised. The Padre says he's bring a proper mattress, a fridge, a microwave and a telly. The last three wouldn't be on my list of priorities.
The best part for us was being part of being Portuguese on holiday in Spain, very enlightening; we enjoyed being treated as though we were Portuguese. One big difference from how we'd do it, is that every day, we had to leave the beach for a few hours to go looking for a good restaurant to have a proper three-course meal in, and their horror when the place today didn't put a tablecloth on the table. The Portuguese take their eating very seriously.
