So far it's been a bit a blur! I can't believe we've been on the road for a week already, only 16 weeks to go!

We've done 1500 miles already out of the 11000 we still have to do. From now we talk in kilometers.... Ouch 17000km!

A brief summary; we landed in Calais on the 5th and headed for Orleans. Had a drama first thing the next morning...while phaffing I misplaced my passport, realised an hour away from where we had stayed. After harassing people into calling the hotel and preparing to ride back I found in my pack all along! For all the guys at work I thought you might enjoy that one...

Got to toulouse and had a beer!

On the 7th we went through the Pyrenees, it was stunning riding and amazing scenery! Met 4 crazy belgians on ktm's, great fun although did tell me to book a flight! Not much faith in the ktm eh?

Arrived in tarragona after more brilliant roads, so hot! Hotel had a pool which was the best thing ever...sweating all day...ripe!

On the road to denia, then to grenada (beautiful city!) and finally Malaga, big day of 383 miles. Bike issues, I was overheating and Adrian was suffering electrical problems. Sorted his on the side of the road, I went to ktm Malaga, guys were really helpful, let's hope it's sorted!

Short hop down to Gibraltar, very weird place, seems to be stuck in a time warp! Spain and England have an ugly child! Hotel was awful so we moved to Algeciras to get ready... That brings us to today!
