    She is going to kill me for posting this one but it is too funny not to.
    After getting up early, spending the whole day walking around in the hot sun, who could really blame her..........:rofl

    The next day, we took the train to Cinque Terre Italy.
    It is a series of little villages along the coast of Southern Italy

    The next day we went to Rome. Again the ship docked somewhere about 50 miles from Rome, but we caught a train and used the subway to make our way in to the heart of Rome and the Roman Empire

    I say things like that to get a reaction from people.
    I know there are some beautiful beaches in Europe.......I just haven't been to them yet. I have only been here for 3 weeks now. And I have just been to the touristy places.
    I hear Greece is nice. And I am heading that way to the north part of Spain in the next few days. Maybe you can show me where it is and we can drink some cold Albarino there.:freaky[/QUOTE]

    Bottles are in the fridge waiting! :vardy:clap

    I wish you fantastic happiness and hope you have a good holiday with Kathe but we are missing the travelling Flying Dutchman seriously soldering on through the hardship of RTW travellers and having to endure the hardship of wine tasting, new places & people on a near daily base and the sharing that with us through cool pics and stories:D

    So....let me see if I have this right. You left on an 800 day motorcycle adventure around the world and in the middle of it you had to take a break to go on a cruise...too funny!

    Great report Lalo and keep it coming but not when Cathe wants to spend some time on the beach.

    While I am just catching up on all your recent activity I dont know for sure if you stopped by the Fangio museum in Balcarce Argentina. If not, you now have a very good reason to go back. ;)

    oh and once you get back on the bike, dont miss Turkey. 2 of the most incredible landscapes in the world are there.

    While in Spain, try the MUGA Rioja Wine, one to remember.

    Best of luck, safe travels.

    I am heading that way now.
    Wine tasting in Rioja tomorrow (Friday)
    And then heading toward Portugal.
    Send me a private message how I can find you.
    I don't have a phone and I don't have detailed maps loaded in to my GPS so it might be tricky.
    But give a city and I will head in that direction.
