We’ve arrived back home more than a couple of weeks ago and I still can’t forget that first week of road trippin’ with two little people. Do you also get the whole “what-day-of-the-week-are-we-at” feeling when travelling for longer than 4 days?

If you’re looking for a place that ticks several boxes in one then San Sebastian, or Donostia, is definitely for you. There are great vibes here, from the beaches to the shopping, we have fallen in love with this city and even thought about moving over.

Another day, another drive from A to B (or in this case from E to F). We moved from the Charentes-Maritime area to the Landes, basically right next to Hossegor and its surfer mecca status that we’ve heard so much about.

The day started with me making coffee outside the tent, with a hint of sun coming through the canopy and silence all around me. Very zen. We all had our morning staple of chocolate spread bagels with milk and packed everything up to go to Nantes.

Who would have thought putting down a tent would be so tricky, I mean it’s assumed that the tent never fits the same dimensions it is packed in but damn this one is a behemoth.

The day has arrived and we are stoked! We didn’t even need an alarm clock for today even if today has possibly been the most tiring day of the whole journey since we left Cardiff at 8.30am to arrive to Licques at 7pm. Not sure how the children haven’t turned to jelly and just melted away from the car. Truthfully, they were amazing!

So, why not write a little about how it has been like owning an electric car with a small family.
