Thanks, Toddler.

It's actually the one on the far right

Great Trip!

Hey Doug,

Finally got around to reading your trip report. The wife and I scrolled through it together. Looked awesome. Our interest is now piqued for El Bulli!

I hope Karen's ankle is on the mend. I can't believe she powered out the rest of the trip with such a bad break!

They will be closed for 12 to 18 months, or perhaps permanently, depending upon whom you believe. So use caution in planning your trip to Costa Brava.

Karen's ankle is fine. It's the blood clot that formed and got into her lungs that became the problem. Four days in Boulder Community. Home now, doing better. Thanks!

Update!

A letter arrived from the Consular Section, Department of State, Barcelona Place, Washington D.C.

"The enclosed has been identified as your property. After being either lost or stolen in the Barcelona consular district, it was found and returned to this Consulate General by the local police."

Enclosed was Karen's driver's license, AAA card and a few other items. No credit cards though.

That is some follow through!

-Doug

A truly appetizing report. And great reportage.

Most people complain about their embassy services but I had a similarly good experience. Long story short, my wallet was lifted in Bangkok. 10 days later I get a call from the Canadian embassy, saying they had my possessions: all my cards, absolutely everything, were returned via a paid Thai post office envelope to the embassy. Fortunately, I had registered prior to arrival. Maybe there's a lesson there.

Thumb British Seagull Rocks

Sounds like a delicious trip. Thanks for the pictures. The British Seagull is possibly the best outboard ever made. Yes they were low powered but they pushed some very large boats. I had a friend with a Brit on his 25' cutter. I have heard stories of people, in emergencies, using their Brit as an anchor and then hauling it out, spraying oil in the cylinder, cranking it a few times and then starting it up as if nothing ever happened. Try that with a modern 4-stroke.

Nice pictures


This is not only to lock the bike, it's mostly used to lock the full-face helmets on scooters without space under the seat.
People put their +500 helmets there... something I would never do. Pollution, rain and who knows what more, right where you will put your head. + thefts...

It's always curious the way ather people see us... Normal/obious things for us could seem very strange for strangers.

To eat in Spain is to know indulgence. The food is absolutely intoxicating, as is the lifestyle.

Great report.
