I wish it were warmer too
It's been getting cold here, this is not why I moved to the Canary Islands! I might as well go back to live in England. :(

Oooh, lovely
Foca looks lovely :) I suddenly 'got' the reference to the fireworks with your photo about it being Ramadan (until 01Oct). Evening night life must be quite fun at the moment?

Sounds like you had a marvellous trip! Lots of nice food anyway. I'm sure you're so glad to be back and haven't got your next trip planned already.

Lovely buildings! Looks to be something of a find, particularly since the food seems to be as good as the scenery!

I remember seeing the shrines when visiting greece ages ago, mostly blue or white. Scary, but you would think even more effective than signs saying 'slow down'. The Nature park looks stunning :)

Oh dear - sorry to hear about all the rain!! Hopefully you will get some better weather soon. On the positive side, at least you aren't stuck in an office with only a fish for company...

The bike handled exactly as expected, a bit heavier, but no problem at all. We hit a variety of road conditions, motorway, A road, urban roads, roadworks with narrow lanes. All were fine, though there was a lot of traffic so I never really got to fully open the throttle. The loading and unloading were fine. No real glitches or problems. I want to make one or two minor adjustments to how the bags load on the rack, but nothing to worry about. All good. Ready to go.

It does bring a whole new meaning to "travelling light". It all pretty much fits, this has been tested. One pannier has mostly bike stuff, tools etc, and waterproofs, the other has electronics, digicam ,EeePC etc, and wash stuff (in two separate waterproof bags). Most clothes fit into the bag on the bag. There will also be a small rucksack on top of the rear bag held in place with a cargo net, it is mostly empty, it will help when unpacking the panniers. There is also a small bag mounted behind the windshield for passports, documents, coins for tolls, shades and stuff.

Ready to go
Goodness, all the packing in those panniers - impressive!!
