There's a vineyard not far from me http://llanerch-vineyard.co.uk/ and several medieval castles as well as some stunning countryside.
Drop me a PM if you do decide to venture this way.
At this moment, I am not planning to make it to GB
Probably a mistake, but I just don't have the time for everything
But if something changes, I will contact you

Thanks

Hi Ed,
The Wheels & Waves event is in Biarritz, the surf capital of Europe, on the South (I said South, not North!) coast of France, just 30 minutes across the border from Irun, Northern Spain. How's your French monsieur!

The event runs form this thursday until sunday. I'll be there for friday morning and I'm staying the night at a local campsite right on the beach. I plan to make my way home on saturday.

There will be live and lots of consumed and they are laying-on a barbecue. I'm sure after all that there will be plenty of in the tents.

Let me know what you think.
See ya.

I am heading your way now.

Let me know how to get there and I will try and make it

Hey Lalo/Ed

This is funny... I started reading your post about a week ago, suddenly on page 195 and thought, its over...and I just realized that you are actually here in Spain ..right now!!

Im guessing that youve taken off from Madrid, if not send me a message and Ive got a spare room at my place dead in the centre of town youre welcome to crash at if you want to get away from the hostel...or let me know where you´re headed and if I can help you with any directions... Im going out for a ride tomorrow anyway towards the Ávila area ...

cheers!

Not only am I am leaving South America and heading for Europe today, I also have my friends move all my stuff from my ex GF's house today.
My friend Joe moved my wine to the my storage facility. It seems like everything went smoothy there.
And my friend's David and Mike (that I have known for maybe 30 years) are moving all the stuff I have in two 45 foot storage containers to a storage facilty.
I have always said that you know who your true friends are when they: 1) will help you move and 2) take you to the airport. Unfortunately the move is not going as smooth as I had hoped for their sake. Most of the items inside the containers needed to be unloaded and hauled separately because the containers were too heavy to lift in to the truck.
So I am really going to owe these guys. It is one thing to help a friend move. But it is a different thing to move someone elses shit when they are flolicking around the Western Hemisphere on a motorcycle.
So when I get home, I will have that wine party that my ex GF promised to have and a BBQ that I learned how to make here in Argentina.
Thank you guys
You are the best
