WOW!!!

What a trip!

So far i've done just 1434 miles from home in north Wales down to Calella near Barcelona in Spain.
And what roads!!! (well apart from the motorways of course)
They've been fantastic!
They twist, they turn, they bend, they run straight and all the time the views have been just amazing.

I'll do a full picture heavy write up when I get back but for now .... here's a few tasters :D :D :D

Now I just need to decide which roads to come back on ... I might plan that tonight sitting by the pool with a nice glass of cold beer :D :D
BUT not a whisky ... I bought a shot (large) of Knockando last night --- 8.40 euros it cost me :eek: :eek: :eek:

Ready to go.


Normandy D-Day memorial - The Charlie 1


Top of the Col


Hot springs in Spain (if I'd have looked closely I might have gone down for a dip :lol: ) - Well someone did ask for topless photos!


The way on


Oh goody, another bend


Another boring road :D


Count the twists


Gorge-ous


More twisties


Have fun in lovely UK and I'll be thinking off you as I travel back through the Vercors, Ecrins and the Alps :D :D :D

I have pictures from that same tank, that I shot in June 2016, a few days after D-Day celebrations, during my 10 weeks trip.

Well I'm home at last, remind me never to move to London area though .... that M25/M1 is HELL !!!

All in all I've travelled 3852 miles.

Taken over a thousand photographs!

Ascended and descended countless cols and passes!

And

Lost count of the number of bends I've done!

This may be a rather large trip report!!!
