  • Day 15: Rolling into SpainEveryone was starving in the morning, and we wanted to keep moving, so we stopped at a roadside McDonalds (a rare thing) near Bayonne. This was the coolest McDonalds ever. And it was so hot and sunny now Posted by tedpeters in Europe in 28 Days! | Apr 19, 2014
  • Overwhelmed and underwhelmedWheels are touching down, am peeking out of the window, and I am grinning: Just landed in a new country. There is just some excitement about that - Never gets old! Being EU, it is not possible to collect stamps Posted by Goofy9 in AdventureTwoPointO | Apr 19, 2014
  • day 14 Palma del Riodistance: 87km Elevation: 1049m Hours in the saddle: 4hrs Terrain: undulating proper You'll have to bear with me today as I am a bit on the tired side and so may not make much sense, if I ever do. Were Posted by louisebenn in my own little vuelta de espana | Apr 19, 2014
  • day 13 Cazalla de la Sierradistance: 91km Elevation: 1353m Hours in the saddle: 4hrs 36min Terrain: undulating with an upward bias. Out into the country once more..sad to leave behind Jerez and Seville but quite keen to start the northward trek up country. Before I left th Posted by louisebenn in my own little vuelta de espana | Apr 18, 2014
  • day 12 SevilleWell today couldn't have been any more different that yesterday. I don't think I was able to switch off from the ride, and so I never really relaxed, instead continuing the time trial on foot around the city, getting grumpy Posted by louisebenn in my own little vuelta de espana | Apr 17, 2014
  • day 11 Jerez to SevilleDistance: 105km Elevation: 391m Time in the saddle: 4hrs 15min Well today was always going to be a 'practical' ride rather than one of interest. The gap between Jerez and Seville doesn't give many options for scenic routes, nor did the cool wet Posted by louisebenn in my own little vuelta de espana | Apr 16, 2014
  • day 9 and 10 JerezSo the journey to Jerez and Jerez itself... For some reason I have been quite excited and looking forward to going to Jerez..not really sure why as I didn't really know much about it. Perhaps it was more about going to Posted by louisebenn in my own little vuelta de espana | Apr 15, 2014
  • day 9 Ronda to JerezDistance:123km Elevation: 1310m Time on saddle: 5hr 15min number of sherry tasters on not much food and water: 4 generous glasses. Sherry (plural) is apparently not conductive to writing and so I will update on the ride today and Jerez in general Posted by louisebenn in my own little vuelta de espana | Apr 14, 2014
  • day 8 Antequera to RondaDistance: 94km Elevation: 1026m Hours in the saddle: 4hr 10 min Well aside from a cold (8 degrees! Brrrrr) and misty start, the cycling day was largely uneventful..which is not a bad thing! Hardly any wind made it quite fast..only little detour was Posted by louisebenn in my own little vuelta de espana | Apr 13, 2014
  • day 7 day trip to el TorcalDistance: 43km Elevation: 1188m Hours in the saddle: 2hr 30 min Plan for today - to have a jolly jaunt out from Antequera, just a quick spin up the local bad boy hill without the panniers and to have some fun! First hurdle - Posted by louisebenn in my own little vuelta de espana | Apr 12, 2014
  • day 6 Algondales to AntiqueraDistance: 93km Elevation: 1215m Hours my butt was wedged on that saddle: 4hr 30 min Injuries: random bruise on my wrist. No idea where it came from but it is quite impressive. Today was a good day - aside from an early mistake of Posted by louisebenn in my own little vuelta de espana | Apr 11, 2014
  • day 5 Ronda to Algondaleskm: 58 Elevation: 964m Injuries: tweak in back of my left knee New cut and bruise on my leg - I really need to stop fighting with the bike, it's bigger and heavier than me, it's always going to win. Cut from fridge Posted by louisebenn in my own little vuelta de espana | Apr 10, 2014
  • day 4 day trip to el ChorroKm: 120 Elevation: 1510m (yesterdays was 1880m) New injuries: none tho I found one from yesterday that I missed..cut finger which christened my handlebar pannier and gloves with blood. After yesterday I was tempted to take it easy today..or even take Posted by louisebenn in my own little vuelta de espana | Apr 9, 2014
  • day 3 Malaga to RondaKm: 110ish Elevation: to scared to look Previous injuries: deskinned bit of finger (just where it hits the handlebars) from too rigourous fridge cleaning the other day Cut leg from cleaning the shower New injuries: new cuts on leg from fighting with t Posted by louisebenn in my own little vuelta de espana | Apr 8, 2014
  • Day Five - MontserratBecause Noordam remains in Barcelona until 11 PM, we were able to use today to visit Montserrat. This is a pilgrimage site that houses the Black Madonna, the patroness of Catalunya. We took the local train to Monserrat Posted by Cybercsp in Noordam Cruise - Barcelona to Rome | Apr 8, 2014
  • Day four - Boarding the NoordamWe decided to give ourselves a leisurely morning before boarding the ship. With a noon hotel checkout, we slept in, walked to a local cafe for cafe con leche and pastry, and returned to pack up. We loved Posted by Cybercsp in Noordam Cruise - Barcelona to Rome | Apr 8, 2014
  • day 2 MalagaToday is going to be a collection of thoughts rather than trying to be coherent - you might take that as a sign of my state of mind ;) I was wrong about the Malagan streets they are not cobbled but Posted by louisebenn in my own little vuelta de espana | Apr 7, 2014
  • One week to go......Who would have thought that these four months would have flown by so fast! Who would have thought that this rather crazy, romantic dream is actually becoming reality! I can hardly believe at times that I am about to head off Posted by Southhobartian in The land of cava and xocolata | Apr 6, 2014
  • day 1 pt 2Before I start I have to say I hope you readers haven't judged me after the last post..in my defence it was written after zero hours sleep and on three tiny beers that went straight to my head..is there a Posted by louisebenn in my own little vuelta de espana | Apr 6, 2014
  • day 1 malagawhat a rollercoaster of a day! A 7am flight and a massive paranoia of oversleeping (and a track record to justify this).. doesn't lend well to a good and satisfying nights sleep. However with 3 alarms set and the phone Posted by louisebenn in my own little vuelta de espana | Apr 6, 2014

  • Day two - BarcelonaWe woke very early (this is what happens when you crash at 7:30 PM) to a somewhat overcast day.
