As you know, we have been living in Spain for a few years, and during that time we have done our fair share of driving. I remember when we first arrived and trying to figure out the rules of the road. Coming from the United States, there were plenty of things that were familiar, but many others that just made us wonder, or look up the answer on the internet. We have welcomed several visitors to Spain and it has been fun driving around with them. It is fun hearing their thoughts on driving in Spain as well the meaning of road signs or street markings. Did you know we have a Zebra, Giraffe and Jellyfish crossing? What about the Poo Stop or Ninja’s on the loose?
No matter where we travel, we usually wind up doing some driving. Heidi and I have the whole driving thing down to a science. I’m usually the driver, and she’s the navigator. We rarely get lost, and when we do, it’s more of a “controlled lost“. And even when we get really lost, it’s not all that stressful. Unless it’s late. Or we’re all hungry. Or tired.
Typically our limit for close and fast paced travel is about 6 weeks. This is the threshold when we notice we are all a bit more snippy with each other and are just flat-out tired. After traveling non-stop for 5 weeks, we began our 6th week of travel on our longest drive yet. This time we were making our way from La Rioja Spain to Bordeaux France. Keep on reading to see how we did for 1 week in France.
Three Wagoners walk into the ocean with surfboards, 1 gets up, 1 goes down, and the other went weeee weeee weeee all day long. We are just having too much fun on our 8 week summer road trip through Spain & France. This time we are surfing in Santander. Well, 3 of the Wagoners are.

Oh how we love Valencia! Last time we visited we stayed in a hotel, but this time we wanted a little more space and a kitchen. We chose Valencia Flats and were pleasantly surprised when we found out we had a terrace too!
It’s that time of year again, summer road trip time! This year our epic summer road trip in Europe will be for about 8 weeks and cover 5000 km (3000 miles). Remember our 6 week summer road trip in Europe, back in 2013? We covered Italy, Austria, Switzerland, France, Andorra and a bit of Spain. We had a blast and shared it all with you every step of the way. We are going to be pushing the family harmony boundaries with this one and see if we can do 8 weeks.
