International Mini Meet – Portugal – Thursday 17th – Monday 21st May 2018
Nick and I met with friends Jackie, Robert and Stephen at the ferry port in Portsmouth. We sailed across to Santander where we then drove the minis across Spain into Portugal. The journey took longer than expected and we arrived at our villa we had rented in Costa Nova in the wee hours. Luckily the lady we rented it from waited for us to arrive so we could get straight off to bed.
We did some sightseeing for a few days before going to the IMM which was being held about half hours drive away.
It was fairly hassle free to find our way in to the camp site. We set up both tents by mid afternoon on a nice spot near the facilities which were not too bad although they do tend to not have toilet seats in Portugal!
It was a fantastic weekend, gorgeous weather, plenty of things to do and lots of partying taking place.
Those BMW things are not very well thought of out there, sensible folk are the Portuguese!!
After taking down the tents and saying our goodbyes and of course buying next year’s tickets for the IMM being held in Bristol it was back to the villa and a few more days sightseeing before heading home.
