Finally a moment to sit down and reflect on the past year. It is amazing how time flies when we are busy and running about from place to place. In the past few months on tour I have had many a day when I thought of what a beautiful summer we had in our trusty and very old van. We had many beautiful experiences in France, always going off the beaten path to find a bit of local flavor and new, albeight brief friendships.
The day before we entered into the French Pyrenees we followed a sign and our hearts to a beautiful country home and family who sold their own homemade sheep´s cheese. We drove up and up and up until we landed at their gorgeous house, and were greeted by their friendly dogs who licked Luna to a special type of cleanliness. The woman explained the entire process of how they produced their cheese and allowed us to taste each type.
We happily purchased a large wedge which was the base of many future meals for us and lasted all the way to Granada, one month later!! After our happy purchase, we eventually found one of the most beautiful places to sleep, right next to a river and a couple of very friendly French families. Our trip was filled with daily gifts like this, a viaje we will never forget.
Don´t show my Mom this photo!!! Luna loves to climb on top of our van and have a better perspective of the world.

Wonderful to see such love and affection and happiness.
The cheese looks marvelous and I’m sure the taste was spectacular. Luna is a must happy young lady, bless her. Happy camping and welcome back to Granada.
