Riding Day 2: Soria to Pamplona

Byebye Soria, a nice place to stay but another beautifull place ,Pamplona, ist waiting for us, inbetween thousends of curves, and turns. Our day starts with a nice Ride throuh the "Reserva Nacional de Cameros" a beautifull peace of Nature, into the famous wine farming area "Rijoa" where we had lunch. And of course we learned something about wine.

But we are also interested in the roads you can also go for a ride, for example to San Sebastian. Like we did.

Riding Day 6: from León to Villafranca del Bierzo


Our day starts in Leon, after a fiew km of straight roads we turn again into a paradise for motorcycle riders. Curves and turns as far you can see…….wait….okay you can`t see so far ahead because of fog in the valleys of a nationall Park. Doesn`t matter after a fiew km the fog was gone and we had a beautiful view.


Another beautifull Day finish again a little closer to our target…Santigao de Compostella

Of course, today is a rest day, but the real end of the Way of St. James is waiting for us. The Cabo Fisterra. For the Romans it was the end of the world. Of course, some of our friends do not want to miss this.

Riding Day 10: from Verin to Salamanca

this morning there was a whiff of burning smell in the air. In the region where we are traveling there was a huge forest fire. During the first half of the route, the smoke was omnipresent. From Braganca cleared so slowly the haze. Salamanca we come

Katherine and Mark
