When coming back from Germany, we said “We’re off to Spain/Portugal next – then where?”. As in Feb the weather is crap, we thought about simply going snowboarding. So started googling snowboarding, then looked on the map to see where the resorts were.
“Hmm – we actually almost pass Andorra and the Pyrenees on the way back, and oh look, there is a ski resort in Sierra Nevada just a few miles from Malaga……”
Only problem, is the van really isn’t winterised for really sub-zero temperatures.
– Installing pipe insulation
– Installing extra “loft insulation” in all the gaps
– Buying “frost heaters” and tank insulation for our fresh water tank
– Buying snowboarding trousers.
So currently, the van is in bits, the water tank is in the dining room, and we’re awaing delivery of the last lot of parts.
Hmmmmm. De Ja Vous from the last trip using the 11th hour to fit extra batteries!
Where do these stupid ideas come from!!?!?!
So maybe this year, Christmas on the beach, and New Year snowboading…..
