Day 137 + 56

I am getting regular updates from Andy about his massive challenge – Rome to Ronda on foot. I am happy to help him. He has been a great supporter of The Shirt project and some reciprocal support is the least Bjorn and I can do.

It is interesting to look back at where we were this time last year. On this very day we were in Torrevieja where we rested up for almost two weeks. That was partly intentional but sadly it was also in Torrevieja that the clutch on the back-up van failed for the first time and threw all our plans into chaos. Still the good news is that we visited the Scandinavian Church, The No Smoking Club, The Norwegian School in Rojales as well as the European Search Dog Centre. We had lunch with The Norwegian Consul and watched Torrevieja versus Puyol. It is also the week that the project jumped up a gear with almost 40 shirts being donated by Sacko’s Bar and The Office. Thanks to all who made us so welcome. Our base was with Dave at Rocajuna where Kev Tyler sang his heart out on a charity night and where Dave and his staff fed and watered us! Mike at Coys Cars organised shirts and we saw his son’s team play. Bjorn did some coaching and it must have done the job because they ran out easy winners in Los Montesinos.
