    4. Portugal.


    We found this to be Spain’s poor cousin. There is some good riding, but the towns and cities are a bit run down. The famous Algarve is just packed with tourists and condos. We will visit the north of the country to walk the Camino de Santiago next fall.

    This is Cabo San Vicente or “Land’s End”

    8. Ireland


    This is a country that really needs to be seen in good weather. The ring of Kerry and the castle towns are stunning, but I am not sure we woould make the effort a second time.

    12. Netherlands


    The highlights here for us was seeing our friends Bart and Renata whom we met in Ushuaia, touring Amsterdam, and riding on the dykes.

    HEY! Long time no see. I think it was Jan 2014. We are home in Vancouver working for the winter. We arrive back in Spain April 7. Our plan is to head to Italy and then Greece. When it warms up we will go north along Adriatic to Poland and Back down to end the season in Bulgaria.
