A collection of graffiti from Coimbra, a vibrant university town. A local delicacy was ginja, a sweet sour cherry liquor served in a chocolate cup! We didn't try any but the delicious smell of warm chocolate penetrated the town. Sometimes in cities we struggle to know what we should be doing- its difficult to explore without spending any money, but we are getting better at finding free events. We stayed in the cutest park up. It wasn't exactly the most beautiful, but had such a sweet community of van people who all seemed to know each other really well. One man had lost his dog, and when we went off for a wonder we kept our eyes peeled. I was chuffed to be the one to find him and bring him back to his owner, who was over the moon and insisted on giving me a bottle of wine! Back into a national park tomorrow where we feel more relaxed 😊 . . . . . . . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit#vanlifediaries#van#campervan#camper#vanlifeuk#selfbuild#portugal
Good morning! Normally with Olivia this is the point of the day where we would have a lazy breakfast before heading out for a walk somewhere but seen as she's not here I'm on the road nice and early looking for something warm to do
This is the only picture I have of our time in Porto!!! We opted to stay just outside of Porto, as we had read lots reviews on park4night where people had vans broken into in park ups in the city. When we arrived we were stunned by the size of the roaring waves, bigger than any Dan and I have seen before! We were both exhausted and the weather was awful, so we watched the waves from the comfort of the van, parked by a cliff. As night came, the wind and rain gained momentum, with the sounds multiplied in our little tin can, which was now rocking from side to side.... NOT the Portugal dream 😂 after a few hours of broken sleep and dreams of being washed away, we moved the van somewhere a little safer just after midnight. The rocking and roaring continued, and I resigned myself to a bad nights sleep. But then at 0330AM came ever vanlifers nightmare, a knock at our door!!! It's pretty creepy, but Dan and I had spoken about what we would do in this situation before. We have always said we would stay calm, never get out the van, and speak to whoever it was through our little window instead. We have designed the van with a door to the cabin without getting out, and now I am SO grateful for that, it makes me feel so much safer. When we open the window, a man asks us if we are sure our battery is working properly, and goes on to explain that he is leaving as it is too windy, but at 1am he had seen our lights on. He explains how he can help us jump start it now. He was right, the battery was dead, but it seemed pretty dodgy at the time to knock on someone's door at 0330, so we thanked him and declined, going back to bed a little spooked. He soon left (i'm sure now he was trying to help as he was so lovely, but at the time it felt like it could have been a scam!) and we relaxed a little. In the morning, after a bit more drama with the jump leads needing amending, a lovely Portuguese couple let us jump start our van on their car..... drama over, for now!!!! . . . . . . . .
I miss waking up to beautiful sunrises!! 🌄 This time of year it's just dark mornings and dark evenings and work seems to take all of the daylight hours! 🏥 So here is a beautiful morning from a camp beside loch Garry 😍

Another box checked off - we built a slide away table/desk and finished the cladding! Before photo at the end to show you the empty space we used up. The conversion is almost complete & we’ve now sent off our V5C to try and get us reclassified as a motor caravan, bring on cheaper insurance and travel to Europe! A lot of countries such as France require a special license to drive a minibus so we have been needing to wait before planning a trip on the Euro tunnel to France or a hop on the ferry from Toms hometown to Holland 🚐 Bert is also going into the garage for some all season tyres on Sunday ❄️
