africadero thanks, you live near a very nice area.
IslandMonkey, thanks mate glad you enjoy my report.
helmik thanks for your comment. Enjoy your trip in October. Also thanks for the tip about El Toros, will definetly try that next time - love meat.
on2wheels52, great respect for your dad, he participated in the liberation of Europe, fantastic! If you get the chance, you should go to the Ardennes. Very nice riding area packed with memorials and museums from the battle of the bulge.
There's a lot more to come, will work on the report later on today.
