    Hi there

    I want to share with you a two day trip, both on the dirt and on the tar, in the west of Avila Province (Spain). Nothing out of the ordinary. Anyway, hope you enjoy it :-)

    Thank you dammitdave!


    Casas de la Sierra, as some other small villages, was abandoned a lot of years ago probably because of the poor living conditions in the area: poor agriculture, cold winters (the village is at 1450m over sea level). You now, people leave the countryside and migrates to the city searching for better quality of live (or at least, this is the theory)...
