We blew the cobwebs away.

To get through a very wet and windy Friday in Eastbourne we did some baking. Felt like a rainy morning thing to do.

Then enough was enough and I needed to get outside. I live at the beginning of the South Downs Way, which starts in Eastbourne, East Sussex and finishes in Winchester, Hampshire.

We blew those cobwebs away on The Downs on this typical Autumn day in Sussex, me and my dog.

And took a few photos on the way.

Braemar navigates the Corinth Canal.

Today Fred Olsen’s Braemar made history as the longest ever ship to cruise through Greece’s Corinth Canal. The canal is 25 metres wide, with limestone walls and connects the Gulfs of Corinth and Saronic in the Aegean Sea.

I wasn’t lucky enough to be there. My partner was and he took these amazing pictures.

I spent an amazing summer hopping the Greek Islands as a seventeen year old. I am restless for a repeat journey.

Terral Burger and Drinks. Malaga.

‘The Malaga Terral wind is a hot wind that comes out of the interior from north to south picking up heat as it travels overland.’

Malaga

Terral Burger and Drinks on the beachfront in Malaga, catches that Terral wind as it reaches the sea.

It’s just a fabulous place to sit and have a coffee or a beer. Good vibes, good service and it goes without saying that the views are stunning.

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

‘I’ve never been sure where holidays end and true travel begins. Perhaps…it has something to do with the inherent difference between a rucksack and a suitcase.’ p10

This was what I really liked about the book. The travels through South East Asia. A proper adventure. However this was based on the authors television documentary of her travels and for me it was far more visual/ watchable than something to read about. I found the book a bit laborious and ended up skim reading the best bits!
