Motorhome Travels in Spain
David McVittie
If you are expecting ancient Spanish culture, glorious cathedrals, castles and works of art this is not what this trip is about.
PHS Member Dave McVittie, his wife Paula and dog left England on a cold, damp February morning to travel through the Channel Tunnel, down through France and so spend three or four months in Spain in their motorhome.
Yes they do visit Valencia, Granada, Ronda, Cadiz and Cordoba, but they also visit camp sites high in the hills and down on the coast, trying to avoid the usual tourist traps and routes. And as they have a dog, they do a lot of walking.
If you have ever dreamt of driving through Spain with no ties, no tour guides, no timetables, free as you like, Dave's highly illustrated talk will show you just some of what there is to see.

Thursday 1 March
Hot and hectic - a visit to the Spanish Pyrenees
Brian Fletcher
This talk covers some of the wildlife, flowers and scenery seen on a Summer holiday. We were based in Berdun, near the Rio Aragon in Navarra, and visited various locations in the Pyrenees and Pre-pyrenees.
 
We saw over 100 different species of butterflies and moths as well as birds and other wildlife.

GIBRALTAR THEN AND NOW
Josie Wheeler
Josie spent 16 of her first 18 years of life living in Gibraltar and returns there now and then. The title of this talk allows her indulge in a small dose of nostalgia whilst outlining the turbulent history of The Rock and taking a look at how this history has over the years influenced the “llanito” culture and forged the unique Gibraltarian identity.
