    Northern Spain! Oh my gosh, I’d love to go with you (wouldn’t that be fun if Tim and I meet up with you on a leg of one of your adventures?). I know Rick Steeves has a segment on northern Spain and there’s an article I read about places to go, will see if I can track it down. Some day in the future, I want to pick your brain on where you go because it’s totally on my bucket list to travel there! Buen viaje!

    Glad to see you all back on the road again! I’m feeling thatb’travellers pani’ too, as I look at another 3 months or so in India and perhaps Europe, starting in November.

    I love Spain – it’s one of my favorite places to go motorcycle riding, and one of the few places I’ve ever been where I’ve said to myself, “I could actually live here”.

    Dont miss the mountain roads headed from Barcelona to Andorra. Andorra is interesting, but rather commercialized. Take some time to ride thru the Pyrenees which are beautiful
    Consider going on North from Andorra into France – the tallest peaks in the Ptranees are around 11k feet I believe, so they’re not particularly difficult ult. And Spain spent a great deal of the money they got when joining thebEU on roads, so their roads are imcredible.

    As a motorcycle rider, I’m always looking for mountain roads, so come back down from the Pyranees and DO NOT MISS AL BARRICIN. That town is perhaps the best preserved medieval place I have ever seen in my life, and the views are simply stunning.

    When you go South, Cordoba is nice – should you find yourselves there, i will send my friends Alba and Jorge to meet you. Continue South, and go to the coast which is lovely, and more laid back than the coast in the Baecelona area. If you’re interested, catch the ferry at Rock of Gibraltar, come out in Morocco, and Fez is a day or so ride further South. Wander up the coast of Portugal and enjoy Porto.

    Every 20 miles across Spain, there will be a large put topping of rocks with a village on it, the food will be fabulous, and the people warm amd friendly. I do find that it helps alot to speak Spanish

    Keep is all updates and enjoy the adventure!
