After only a short drive we met our second workaway hosts in a bar in the small town of Xerta. They seemed very pleasant and we followed them back to their house in the middle of nowhere. As usual we had confirmed ahead that there were no access issues for Daisy and were assured that the roads were fine…..they lied!!!!
