What a whirlwind July and August was! Our trip to Pamplona in July took us from the southern coast of Spain all the way to the northern border and into France. Spain is beautiful and spacious, with breathtaking mountain and ocean views, spectacular history, and ancient plazas and buildings that still radiate a glorious past. We had so many extra pictures from our last 6 weeks in Spain that we decided to post them here without the usual narrative. We are currently in Argentina and will be moving onto Chile soon !

Monday 27th December 2010 to Sunday 2nd January 2011 Monday 27th December 2010 Maro-Nerja-Andalusia-Spain Have decided to rest here for a while. Beautiful morning so on bicycle and off Tom goes. Computer is programmed on kms travelled but Tom thinks it is on time travelled. So at 21, he stops and has a goo and water and turned around. Got home and Gaye says ‘must have been good as you have been gone for a while’ Tom says ‘no actually gone only 40 minutes’. ‘No’ says Gaye, and I realize and check computer. Oops – Tom has been gone 2.5 hours – the ride was so good he lost track of time. So at 1pm we went on a scooter ride, and rode to where he had turned around on the bicycle. We had a late ... read more
