The Capper Nomads Europe Adventure travel blog

We left France and crossed the border into Spain. This time we were driving separately as towing was only allowed on a braked trailer. The Spanish we had been told had not signed up to the EU reciprocal agreement to recognise other countries allowed towing arrangements so their local law applied. There had been cases where motorhome owners towing with an A-frame had been stopped and fined. We did not want to take the risk, as the Spanish police could be as bad as the US border guards!

For the first part of the journey was on a very well engineered motorway through part of the Pyrenees in Northern Spain. This was spectacular. We then headed south and found ourselves on a high plateau with vistas which stretched miles of rolling agriculture land. Very uninteresting!

We arrived at the town of Burgos. We found the campground. It had a nice wide entrance but there internal roads were tree lined and their pitches were rather soggy in places. We asked if we could park on the solid internal road and they said no problem. Several other smaller European motorhomes who came in later did the same. The campground was next to a path along the river so was able to give Daisy a good walk after our journey.

It was bitterly cold. Weren’t we supposed to be heading south to be warmer!
