Guided City Tour

Before the Tour started Janine, Angelika, Howard and Karl Heinz ( Charly) have decided to take the guided City Tour in Barcelona. We had perfect weather it was not neither too hot nor to cold so we had a lot to discover. We started with the "casa" Batlo from Gaudi from  where we then went through the Passeig de Gracia via the Plaza Catalunya to the Boqueria the famous Market at the Ramblas. Afterwards we have been to the Sagrada Familia which of course is a must including going up the tower,  what an experience to get over 500 steps down. As well the Cathedreal St Eulalia in the center of the city has been visited. Of course between we have made a couple of stops to try the Tapas, Pinchos and some local wine    It was just perfect.  Hope to see you soon again on one of our Tours. It was a pleasure guiding you through my Hometown, Cheers, Pierre

What an amazing trip.From Barcelona to the Pyrenees , and back in a week, not enough time to savor everything. Roads were amazing, , all kind of roads, from very narrow passages to highways, which we were lucky not to see frequently at all.
Hotels were very good, particularly Can Boix, but food at Mollo was the best. Although Carcassonne is the highlight and is beautiful I prefer the smaller villages or towns.
Drinks in the afternoon with all of you was the highlight of the day for me. to get to know each one of you and learn your adventures thru life, the amazing trips of Mirko and my parcero ( colombian friend) Jurgen. to the tours and stories of Charles. Karl and Angela interesting life in Germany and his dislike of the GS1200 ? maybe with a reason or "TOE". lol, and Howard and Janine charm and candor and willingness to help us all. no wonder he is a great Er doctor with great compassion.Great trip and riding, and thanks to Mirko and Jurgen for encouraging me to ride on my own. I did have a blast. Hope to see you soon somewhere around this beautiful planet .
