Calais to Abingdon

The last day of our trip…Calais to Abingdon. Rain greeted us as we loaded our cars in Calais and we drove the short distance to the train. The train was delayed by about an hour but eventually we were underway.

Fair weather greeted us in London and we were also met by 2 MG cars and owners from the MG car club of the UK. We drove to Abingdon, where Vulcan began her life and although the factory is now converted into apartments we had to take photos of her by the gates.

The hospitality of the MG car club was delightful and we chatted about the trip during lunch. Then more photos and onward to the Dog House Inn where we were to celebrate the end of the trip.

ART dream

Wine and more architecture

Wine and More Wine – OleBilbao OLD and NEW Monday dawned sunny and warm and we headed down to the Guggenheim Museum, even though it is closed we wanted to relish the slick titanium skin, contrasted against the smooth pale limestone blocks. Everything glistened in the bright morning sun, reflections of the curved surfaces bounced off the water surrounding the metal walls and the metallic sculptures in the forecourts around the Guggenheim. Did you know that every surface in the building is curved and there are no straight lines thus emphasising the organic flowing lines of this magnificent Frank Gehry masterpiece Tomorrow we’ll visit this amazing museum along with our Silk Road companions Pat and David who we are travelling with around Spain and Portugal in our trusty MGs. Hop on and off buses have always been a favourite and quick way of acquainting ourselves with a city. We cruised around the narrow streets enjoying the views from the top deck. We were diverted by police a few times into the back streets because of a rally of thousands of people marching along the main thoroughfare of the city. Red, white and Green flags and banners waving, fire crackers exploding, releasing clouds of smoke. How We hopped off a The Mercado de la Ribera one of the largest fresh food markets in Europe and we arrived just in time for some Pintxos which we enjoyed with a beer and Sangria. So many delicious sweet and savoury munchies to choose from – what a treat!
