Off the boat, we loaded the moto up with wine, bikinis and camping gear to find a place on the beach south of Barcelona. Kathe had 3 more days before she needed to head back to Lima

We head down to Tarragonga.






I will post more pictures later. It is getting dark and I need to find a place to camp. After the cruise, I think I am going to be doing a lot of free camping........I am way over budget now

Great adventure

Loving it Lalo
If you want sand you need to head south.
South of Barcelona you'll start to find sand.
South of Valencia you'll find sand and much warmer water.
Have fun!!!

Rioja

I am having one of the best days of my life here in Rioja Spain.
This region makes some of my favorite wine in the world.
And the roads and scenery are awesome too.
I am so lucky to be doing what I am doing.
And today just reinforces that.
Yaaaaaaah

What a great day yesterday.
I hit 5 wineries in Rioja.
The wine was so good, I had trouble not swallowing it.
Normally I spit if I have to ride but at the last winery, it was wine drinking and not wine tasting any more.
The nice gal pouring the wine wasn't helping matters by pouring me more than a taste of each wine including the Grand Reserva from 1994.
She offered to let me use her spare room so I didn't have to drive.
That also meant I could take a well deserved shower.
We met some of her friends for a couple of drinks at a bar in town.
To my surprise, she picked up the tab before I even saw the bill.
And we went out later to dinner to a nice restaurant and I figured I would grab the bill for that but we almost got in a wrestling match over the bill and she had me pinned for a three count.
And just when I didn't think anyone could be nicer, she forced upon me a bottle of the 1994 grand reserva to take with me.
If I didnt have a gf already, I think I would have asked her to marry me
Lol
It is people like this that make my trip so special and make the world a better place
Muchas Gracias mi amiga nueva.

Agreed I get up in the morning and go,zero plans,little direction=spontaneous fun,work requires me to plan 6 months in advance,why do that in your free time.

But then again, they are all traveling together. It is tougher to do it by yourself.
It certainly, says it all ... you don't see many smiling faces on the 5FY at 07:00AM ...
