Before leaving Europe for the US later this year I wanted to see Spain and in particular Picasso's 'Guernica'.  My old chum Will volunteered to be my travelling companion, my Sancho Panza.   We packed the car with all our camping kit & headed south for a 3 week expedition through France & Spain.  Will  navigated us across the continent with only a large scale roadmap & the stars, which may explain why we were so often lost looking for campsites.  But the "scenic routes" were better anyway and Don Quixote never had an i-phone with GoogleMaps either.

I've been with Will on local buses here in London and we've ended up *really* lost. It's a miracle you
made it back at all...
