I am generally useless at planning holidays so whilst Marie and I have been thinking about it for a while the only trip planning that I have done so far is to book the ferry back from Santander to Portsmouth in a few weeks time.
We live in London so the plan is to hop in the car when we can (my boss has not committed to the actual day that I can disappear off on holiday, but we will have a week to a week and a half), take a ferry across the channel and then meander to Santander via Bordeaux, San Sebastian and maybe Rioja (time permitting).
One complication is that Marie went and broke her metatarsal last week so won’t be doing much walking. She is strangely keen to still go though since it will be sick leave for her and I will be doing all the driving!
I realise that this is a broad remit but any suggestions on restaurants, vineyards, hotels etc. would be very welcome for any of the above areas, bearing in mind that long walks around cellars probably won’t be on the cards for one of us at least.
