wednesday: up early as moving on today....quite glad to leave this noisy aire at barcelona, get some
30 euros a night was steep too, esp. as the facilities were nothing to write home about!! loos and
showers in old containers (didn't really use them!).
anyway, sad to leave barcelona, not sad to leave the aire....onto the road about 11am, after using
the not very nice waste services, packing up, extra route planning etc...
have decided to make a detour to one more motorhome repair shop, as its a legitimate knaus dealer -
info from the place in barcelona.
drove about an hour, high into the hills, to find it and arrived just in time - before they shut for lunch.
really lovely man in there who said yes, he could help us, but it would be a whole day thing, and most
of his mechanics were at the same barcelona motorhome fair that the other mechanics were at....he
suggested we use another knaus dealer near alicante instead....
so, we are all booked in for that after our stay in benissa! horrah, success at last, and he even gave us an
old spare part we need for our bedroom roof light : )
after that drove to the aire, which is on private land, a vinery (they make cava here).
parked up with another couple of vans, one german, one dutch....lovely view towards the mountains
at montserrat, and gloriously quiet, not a sound!
there are a couple of friendly dogs ambling around, and the owner pops out with his large cigar, and his
red folder of info whenever a new campervan arrives!
sun is out, so got the scooter off for a pootle into the local town for bread, and to use the internet at
carrefour, a nice change from mcdonalds!
will only stay here one night, as p working this aft for a bit - but its lovely, and we are enjoying being
back in the countryside after our frenetic 2-day city visit! : )
