  • Day 11 The meeting I have been waiting for...Finally the day has arrived! It is Tuesday 8th July.

  • OlotDistance: 48km Total ascent: 412m Hours in the saddle: 1hr 15 Well that was a bit of a pathetic day. I didn't realise how pathetic til I looked up and wrote down those stats. In my defence I felt pretty crappy. A flicky Posted by louisebenn in my own little vuelta de espana | Aug 4, 2014
  • Ribes de FreserDistance: 52km Total ascent: 657m Hours in the saddle: 2hr 15 Terrain: up! And of course down!

  • Camping on the beaches of the Mediterranean[center][/center] OK, well not quite on the sand, but 200m or so back. When it’s quiet we can hear the waves breaking. This campsite is quite different to the last one... or maybe it’s just tha Posted by aboo10 in 2+2 travel | Jul 16, 2014
  • Week 13: Nature in northern SpainThis week has been devoted to exploring Northern Spain. We started in Alberracin camping near the village in the national park, which it turns out is pretty popular with the local rock climbing crowd.

  • Bar-tha-lonaEggplant I didn't mention in the last post how much I enjoyed the Madrid train station. That's probably because I didn't realize how good it was until I got to its Barcelona counterpart. Upon de-training at Barcelona, I had Posted by BlazeNEggplant in Rambles & Fumbles | Jul 10, 2014

  • Espana, mi amorVisited: Madrid, Sevilla, Malaga (quick stop in order to get to Torremolinos), Granada, & Barcelona Number of Days: 14 Favorite City: It's a toss-up between the Sevilla and Barcelona.

  • SpanglishEggplant You'd think 5ish years of high school Spanish would prepare me for a couple of days in Spain, but you'd be terribly wrong. In all fairness, I've been on a four year hiatus from Spanish, but even the simplest Posted by BlazeNEggplant in Rambles & Fumbles | Jul 3, 2014
  • Last Day in Spain Well, we didn't go see My Fair Lady or perfect our Spanish accents. We did, however, dodge a slew of thunderstorms today. We didn't do much of anything except go for a run, come back to freezing cold Posted by Amber Garrison in The One Less Traveled By | Jul 3, 2014
  • Toledo Today we took a train out of Madrid to Toledo. Toledo was the orginal capital of Spain, and it is well preserved...and you don't see very many modern structures. We didn't have a big agenda once we got Posted by Amber Garrison in The One Less Traveled By | Jul 2, 2014
  • Week 12: Spectacular SpainIt has been another pretty busy week for us in Spain, so much going on it’s hard to keep track of the weeks.

  • Madrid Day TwoToday we took a walking tour of Madrid. The guide was good and gave a lot of interesting facts about Madrid. It gave us a good deal of insight into the Spanish people and culture. The walk started in Posted by Amber Garrison in The One Less Traveled By | Jun 30, 2014
  • Like Cristòfor Colòn (Christopher Colombus)Blaze Brian here (or blaze as it appears i have been named). First I'd like to start by saying how much i dislike writing on a tablet, so I'll probably keep my entry short.
