Joys of Free EV Charging in Barcelona
Went to Barcelona on a Road Trip to check out a few more chargers. Went to Poblenou first then to Mercabarna and on towards the airport. I would have called into another on the way near home but I wanted to get back to see the Apple Event on the TV.

EV Road Trip or Resting Rosie
Rosie gets a break. three or four days not going anywhere except for a short trip to an art gallery in St. Feliu de Guixols, She did get a wash though and only slightly caught in the rain on the day after. The Kärcher pressure washer is great for car washing with the foam soap attachment and the pressure spray. Load of rubbing and carressing of my Nissan Leaf.

Two trips to Barcelona to buy an Apple iPhone
Having electric car you might need to plan A, Plan B, Plan C and maybe even a plan D. It will be good when there is more infrastructure for electric cars available generally.

Platja d’Aro Charged
The charger had been fixed. Last time I went to it there was nothing there, it had been beheaded. Got chatting to a Welshman who is an EV driver in a Renault Zoe and I was able to pass on some information about getting charged around Spain.

Rapid Charging in Barcelona
Rapid charging in Barcelona The idea for this mini trip came from when I first got my car I wanted to make a trip to Barcelona airport. I tried using a charger which was near to the airport but was unable to get it to activate. I had to do some research and asked some questions on Twitter for someone to tell me exactly how to make the charger work with the application. So this is my story of going down to Barcelona to do some testing of the rapid DC charging available in the city. My first port of call was to Mataró there was a charger just by the beach. I got there and it didn’t work. It was completely dead as a door now and out of action. All part of the fun! Got back into the car and headed to a charger which was only 20 minutes away in the same town next to Barcelona. The charging point was easy to find and those only a little bit disappointed by there being a large lorry in the charging bay. I would still have been able to plug-in and get charging.

My Nissan Leaf Tekna Update - So Close yet so far
Hoped to take control of the car today and drive home. Red tape and inaction by the dealer and Traffic department putting up the road blocks. I sometimes think there is a conspiracy keeping the car away from me. I will overcome these difficulties and get my car. I'm hoping tomorrow is the day. Mind you I said that yesterday.

Talking to James from Scotland about Driving a Leaf
James just bought a Nissan Leaf 2018 40kWh model and has a YouTube channel on which he tells us loads of great information about how to get the best from the car. He regularly drives the car between Scotland and Newcastle and looked hard at how to charge the car and not get the battery too hot. #Rapidgate doesn't seem to affect him much and he's driven many miles in the New Leaf.
