Nowadays it’s all too easy to hop on the plane at your local airport and fly to Palma, but where’s the fun in that? Much better, in our opinion, to make the journey part of the experience, says Terri Cody-Owen
With adventure in mind, my husband and I loaded up the car, suitcases in the boot and the back seat entirely occupied by an inflatable boat, which we bought on eBay, to add to the fun of our romantic anniversary road trip.
First, we headed off to Plymouth, to catch a Brittany Ferry (www.brittany-ferries.co.uk), which whisked us across an usually calm Bay of Biscay as we slept soundly in our cabin, before disembarking in the Spanish port of Santander in glorious sunshine.
Our continental journey through Spain would begin from the northern Atlantic coast through to the Mediterranean shores of Barcelona, a trip of contrasting landscapes, beginning in surprisingly lush Green Spain, then across the barren Pyrenees to Barcelona.
