Our Dog Bracken Has a Few Words to Say


Hi pawtners ....

I’m a mischievous, travelholic golden retriever with a passion for being immersed in sand, sea and mud - and the odd cow pat.

I’m in canine heaven exploring new smells and scenery on our motorhome adventures.

Mountain King in Sierras de Cazorla in Andalucia

Of all my magical travel memories - one that pawticularly stands out is when I became the Mountain King in spectacular style.

We were hoping to camp in the Sierras de Cazorla in Andalucia - Spain’s largest national pawtected park and the second largest in Europe which stretches over 2,000 kilometres. 

Our disapawntment at closed campsites soon vanished when we found a spa hotel (I stayed in our motorhome) and we did an enormous walk up the hills and mountains. 

What an adventure! - I was in my element - we saw a roebuck, deer, birds and I heard and smelt lots of rabbits, foxes and squirrels. The park also has 35 plant species that cannot be found elsewhere in the world - so lots of sniffing to be done.   

My pawrents said there was also wild boar lurking but I felt fearless as I bestrode the epawmous mountain and pretended I ruled the valley below. 

Four hours later I was pooped as we headed back down. And, if I’m paw-fectly honest, quite annoyed they wanted me to pose for more photos (give me a break guys!) after all that explawing!!

I had the most amazing dream that night as I recreated my short reign as Mountain King one the most pawfect day of my life so far!
