After a week in Madrid I got the car out of storage and we hit the road. Cuenca is a bit off the beaten track on a highway with very little traffic. In just over 100 kilometres we saw maybe 5 cars going the same way as us. Cuenca is situated on a steep spur whose slopes descend into the Jucar and Huecar rivers.
