France's Mediterranean Coast

posted by Cathy    9 Sept 2015   France Mediterranean Coast, AND France Cote d'Azure, St Tropez to Avignon

Continuing east along the south coast of France we popped into a number of beaches on the Mediterranean Sea. We had a night at a winery near the Camargue before stopping at the ancient town of Arles. There were lots of great beaches around the Golfe du Lion as we drove through Marseille and Toulon on our way to St Tropez on the Cote d'Azure. The coastal road highlights were the Calanque du Figeurolles and Point le Layet.

We explored St Tropez then continued on the coastal road. Wow! We were rewarded with some fantastic scenery. We could only make it is far as Cannes before turning back west so we would be in time to pick up our boat for the Canal du Midi. Highlights on the way back were Les Beau de Province (Chateau and winery) and Avignon. Missed the last Blog Entry? See all entries on the Trips and Photos page..

Spanish and French Coast with the amazing Montserrat

posted by Peter    19 Aug 2015    Spanish Coast and Montserrat AND Leaving Spain and into France

In this part of our trip we leave the Costa del Azahar and head into the Costa Daurada region of Spain (travelling from near Valencia to near Barcelona). There are lots of interesting places to explore as we zigzag along the coast and up to 60km inland. Highlights were: spotting castles and forts (mostly ruins) on most of the prominent hills we passed; finding small towns with amazing churches such as Alcala de Xivert; exploring Pensicola Old Town and beach; staying at a small winery and exporing the nearby Montserrat mountains and Monastery. Amazing!

Back to the coast again... Spain's Mediterranean beaches are beautiful with lots of towns to expore along the Costa Brava. Some of the highlights were the beaches around St Feliu de Guixol and the town that Pals Castle once protected. We crossed the border into France and the beautiful bays and beaches continued... This was one of our most scenic coastal drives.

What's this travel site about?

  • We love to travel and want to share our photos and experences with you.
  • Are you planning similar trips and holidays? The information on this site will be particularly useful for those who are planning a roadtrip, around Australia, New Zealand or UK and Europe.
  • Our home base is Queensland so we never let a holiday go by without trying somewhere new like a houseboat around Moreton Bay, sailing a catamaran around the Whitsunday Islands, camping and bush walking through rainforests or 4WD-ing at Fraser Island. Please Explore our Aussie Holiday site...

Aussie Holidays

  • Discover Australia by following our real life adventures as we take every holiday opportunity to see as much of Australia as we can. Our motto is to see Australia first and we have done our best to live up to that.
  • We love travelling, not only to the usual tourist destinations but also off-road to some of the more inaccessible and spectacular scenic areas that Australia has to offer.
  • This country is very diverse and we aim to see it all. Our longest adventure was a road trip around Australia for nearly 7 months. NOT LONG ENOUGH! We are already planning the next one which will be 12 months.

Overseas Holidays

  • Australian holidays are the focus of this website BUT of course we don't just holiday around Australia.
  • We have most recently been on a cruise around the Pacific Islands of New Caledonia, to Vanuatu, Fiji, New Zealand, Alaska and Canada.
  • In 2015 we set off on the BIG TRIP to UK and Europe for 12 months in a Motorhome.
  • Armed with a digital camera we always take WAY too many photos so culling them down to put up on the website sometimes takes a while. Check regularly for TRIPS AND PHOTOS .
