Cruising in Tenerife – Part 2

Continuing on from Part 1,  we rode back to near where we landed on the island originally, at the airport, where we were staying in some cabins at a campsite. Unlike the Casa Rural where we stayed the last 2 nights, this was not as nice…

Cruising in Tenerife - Part 1

Jolien and me have been traveling exclusively by van up until now, so we thought for our spring trip, we'd change things up a bit. Jolien can ride a little 125cc motorcycle legally without a proper motorcycle license, so we decided to head to…

The Alps and Pyrenees Back to Back

In September I had my last two Edelweiss tours; I'd taken up a short, special 4-day tour with Japanese customers before I'd be heading to the familiar Pyrenees Extreme tour. As a note: I did not take any of the riding photos during the Japanese…

Pyrenees Extreme 2017 Round 1

I've been to the Pyrenees quite a few times over the past year now, but since the riding is so excellent I didn't mind that Edelweiss assigned me to some more tours in that area. This time around it was a tour fairly similar to my previous tour…

Esco - Pueblo Abandonado

On our first evening in Spain, we camped near the abandoned village of Esco. We walked around at just the right time, with golden sunlight falling among the ruins. I have so many good pictures I thought I'd dedicate an entire post to it. The…

Last time we'd pretty much reached the end of Asturias, where the province of Galicia starts. Our first stop there was the very famous (as in: signs are up kilometers in advance) beach of The Cathedrals, or "Praia Das Catedrais" The name…

Con la Furgo en el Camino - Asturias

As we left the Basque Country, we had high hopes for what was coming up. There's not much of a plan but we we were very excited about the province of Asturias after reading a really good blog about it. First we'd be going through the province…

Con la Furgo en el Camino - Euskadi

Part of why I didn't post much since the tour in Australia, is because I have been so busy preparing for this trip in my van with Jolien: our vague plan is to drive to Spain and slowly head to Santiago, from where she flies back due to work…

To Africa: Madrid - Ouezzane

Continuing on from Madrid, our plan was to take the ferry to Morocco the next day. A Spanish trucker told us there was a good truckstop at mile marker 288. We'd started driving very late, so by midnight we were all really looking forward…
