Another research trip coming up!

Lovely Jan and I are planning another research trip, probably for sometime in June. Part of the action in ‘Expulsion’ takes place in Valladolid which was the capital of Spain for about five years at the beginning of the 17th century. I won’t tell you what happens there in the novel because that might spoil your read – I’m sure you’ll buy it!

The Royal Palace in Valladolid. A rather plain construction!

Lovely Jan wants to stay in some of the Paradors while in Spain so that’s probably what we’ll do. To hell with the expense!  I’m not sure yet how we’ll get there. We may go on the Portsmouth to Bilbao ferry but I’d prefer to drive all the way. Anyway, I’ll report back on how we get on.

  1. Yes, research trips are great. Di & I enjoyed ours to Prague last October. We also did the Portsmouth to Bilbao some years ago across the notorious Bay of Biscay and boy did it live up to up to its reputation! Hope you and Jan are good sailors! Valladolid looks lovely, so sure you’re have an interesting and useful trip.
    Best, John
