Basically, I intend to drive around the perimeter of Spain, wandering inland and back to the coast whenever there is a place I specially want to see. My plans are mostly quite vague and intentionally so but with a few markers along the way. For anyone wanting more detail in advance I've used the itineray thingy on here!

Many thanks to friends who have made suggestions for places to make sure I see and especially to my Spanish teacher Brigitte who has shared more than just the language!!

See you when I get back

Aug 17, 2006 - to, more or less(!), 31st August, travel through the North-west provinces of Spain. Basically this is all the bits from the port in Santander and into the part that sits on top of Portugal - then I'll drive back into the main part of Spain and start to follow the sun south :-)

Sep 18, 2006 - After dropping Jon off at the airport I'll be really starting to make my way along the coast, which sadly means heading North and away from the sun. I'll be wandering inland here and there and doing my best to avoid (English) tourist hotspots!! I'm aiming to avoid visiting any English/Irish pubs or...  (more...)
Oct 5, 2006 - I should be driving through Barcelona on my way to meet up with Jon in Lloret de Mar - yes I know what I said about tourist destinations but he's going to be there on a salsa week with MamboCity so it has to be done!
Oct 8, 2006 - I'll be leaving Jon at Gerona airport on 8th October and will have a look at the town and may look at some of the coast North of Lloret de Mar which I hear is relatively undeveloped.
And after that, I have to head back inland, drive more or less along the edge of the Pyrenees, making a very...  (more...)
