Extremadura

So we`ve been on the road for 9 weeks already, which sounds like ages but it has literally passed in the blink of an eye. By far the most difficult and fustrating thing so far (apart from the skylight leaking in the rain and the fridge that only works when the weather is cold) is the lack of internet connection. We had such grand plans about blogging from the road in real time…. yeah, that`s not happening so much. We`re sitting in a campsite in Venice and blogging about Spain, 8 weeks ago. Being a digital nomad sounds lovely when you read about it at home with a permanent wifi connection, on the road is a whole other story. But we`re learning as we go and by the time the trip is over we should hopefully be experts!

Our first stop in Spain was the Extremadura region, we visited the city of Cáceres and the surrounding region… Trujillo, Valle del Jerte and the Tejo River on the Spanish side of the border. This is a beautifully rural part of Spain… wide open plains and anicent cities dotted throughout the rolling wheat fields. It`s quite undiscovered by international tourism and we hardly saw anyone who wasn’t Spanish.

  1. Oh these are so good!! But yes, I hear you about the lack of internet… Even if there is this will of really focusing on what you’re experiencing, the internet makes everything easier when you’re traveling, to check things out, to make decisions… and ultimately, to share with others about your experience! I’m loving the pictures you’re able to post though! Keep them coming!
