Days 20 & 21, 19th & 20th June. Relaxing..

We’ve travelled around quite a lot on this trip, and even when at a site we’ve been out and about most of the time.  So we’re going to just have a couple of days of chilling.

After a half enjoyable, half not, ride (on my part anyways) we arrived to find the market in full swing. I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned it but markets aren’t really my thing, and it stood between us and the beach!

We had to go round a few back roads to make it to the front (because the market was busy and I would probably have run someone over..!) It was pleasant enough, but the water was COLD. Continue reading “Days 17-19, 16th-18th June. Beach and moving days”
