All about Monserrates’ place and the city nearby

As Eva and Flo arrived in Arneva (Orihuela-Alicante) Monserrate told them what they first have to do: “Relax”. So they did and enjoyed the first evening with a BBQ - the spanish way. The next days they where invited for lunch by the family and this was the only thing they really had to do.
They got to know Manuel a friend of Monserrate who had learned to build Sofas. So Flo asked him if he can fix the right front seat of his bug because the travel was destroying it. He said yes and so the deal was perfect. They go to searched for the best cloth an Manuel sew it in the old leather. Now the seat looks like new and Eva is happy to sit well.
Another day Monserrate showed them the old parts of Orihuela which his Hometown Arneva belong to. Flo and Eva hadn’t expect that beautiful city. They walk along and get told about its history and about the local hero Cid.
”At this point we want to say thank you very much Monserrate! Also a big thanks to your very friendly family! It was a great time at your home and also on your flat at the beach! But now we have to continue our journey. We hope you come soon to visit us in Vienna!”

In the middle of France

The last three days Eva and Flo were travelling through France. On the countryside it is a very beautiful piece of land. To see as much as possible they took small roads through large valleys and romantic little cities. As you can see below! The bug and the caravan are still running fine. With big steps they move forward to reach Spain.

EuroTrip2015 – How the journey began

This year Eva and Flo finally decided to go on a trip. They bought a Qek caravan, like Domi's and Zainab's, a few months ago and began to restore it to receive an austrian licence. The car who will tow it has always been clear. It has to be Flo’s bug from 1966 - his loved first beetle.
None of them had planned a route they just had directions and countries which they wanted to see. And there was just one goal – visit Monserrate, a good friend, in Spain.
So the journey started in Vienna and the first stop was in Waldhausen at Friedrich`s place, where they fixed the last things.
Below you can see the pictures where they have been.
