Spain, Portugal and Morocco off road
Hi All, our plans for 2012 are a tour of Spain, Portugal and Morocco off road as much as possible leaving mid June and riding an XT660Z and XT600E. In Morocco we will ride in the mountains to avoid the high temperatures.
i am seeking advice on trail routes, cheap accomodation & campsites, must see sights, etc
the map shows our intended route which is not set in stone.
Thanks in advance, Andy
Alhambra palace........beauifull, with excellent gardens and a real old feel.....well it is about a bazillion yrs old, im not really a "buildings" kind of guy, but i gotta admit it was pretty damn breathtaking.......pity they dont allow camping in there.! oh DO hire the headsets, they give commentary in your chosen language about where ever you go, history of building, and loads of good info! well worth a trip :clap:
check it out on google.........
I will do the same countries in June (KLR 650), it would be a pleasure to meet you in the road.
We just did 3 nights in Granada - the Alhambra is historically breath taking, to experience flamenco... the Peña Flamencos are great especially the one up the street from Hostal Landazuri, (where we stayed, inexpensive like 45 euros a night for 2 plus 10 euros for safe and secure indoor parking. It is a Mother/ daughter team that run the place, but the young Mexican woman who works there is a work of art - intelligent bilingual and very welcoming).
We are now into Flamenco, big time. The "duende" is the point at which you really feel the music , the dance, the vocalist. It is more intense than tango.
Stay away from the tourist venues of flamenco - you will spend a lot and rarly have "duende".....to show for it. go for the peña flamencos.... ask around for directions from locals...
We are up on the north coast of spain now. Have a great ride
