Spain 10 day trip

Well I have been on the forum for a little while now, & have decided it was about time for me to put up some of my photos, firstly let me just explain,
after leaving the army of 22 years, I had no interest in going abroad, as for 5 years I lived in Germany & would tour around @ weekends & long week ends, & on leave so I sort of lost the bug. Never the love of my bike's (riding from 16 onwards), 2 years a go a very special person cam into my life, half of her family live in Spain, (I had never been), or ever on a civilian flight! always RAF.
Anyway she was never keen on bikes but had a moped when she was young, (didn't we all?), anyway after looking at cost & my finances & leave from work 30 days including bank holidays, I decided to cheat, fly to Spain & hire a bike I found Bike Espana (i am not going to say any thing else about bikespana but I am still in contact with the owners who I would highly recommend if any one wants a short break, holiday), so that is what I did,
September last year, the really good thing is they take you out for days at your own leaure & the wife pearl takes photos from the back of his Enfield, of you riding in Action they at the end give you a cd with all the photos on. they keep it very small & casual, so the photos you will see some of me on the BMW F650GS others of views by me, I do have the routes we took on a daily basis, none of it was hurried or rushed, after all you are thre for 'fun' I also went to Gib for 2 days for Gib day & saw the Quo stayed with her sister.
I hope you enjoy the photos

I think they are self explanatory wrong! lol
hope not too big, tryed to insert but dont have a url for my hard drive
1 Local bike in local village Alozine.
2 Me on the right doing helmet up getting ready for the off.
3 The owners Enfield, btw all the bikes are there own.
4 One of the riders
5 Me (overtaking the Enfield, while they are taking the Photos)
We are the Pilgrims, Master, we shall go Always a little further: it may be beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow, Across that angry or that glimmering sea.
