It's sunny but cold and windy as we're hitting spanish border South of Argeles. The road is twisted and strong winds almost blow us of the bike. Still, it's fun!
With every Kilometre its getting warmer though...
Not really interested in big cities we still manage to take a few pics at the Sagrada Familia church in Barcelona before we continue our ride south.
Most of the Campgrounds along the coast are closed and the hotel prices are just above our budget... The search for accomodation is starting to become hard work.
The open Camps are mostly filled with retired Germans or British, who'd spend 3-6 Months a year in a caravan or mobile home down here.
The funny thing is though, that the camps are divided in German and English parts by an invisible line. We're being drawn to the German side almost immediately...
scrambled eggs for breakfast today
a night out in Calpe
Just on time we make it to Alicante where we meet our good friend Jonathan. Almost 2 Years ago we travelled together in Ladakh and now, he'd fly over from London just to see us again!
During our visit to Alicante we mostly revive the times in India and chill for the next leg of our trip. Jon and his Father are great hosts and we're enjoying every minute of our stay in their house.
From Alicante we're heading through the cold and wet Sierra Nevada mountains to Tarifa, where we'd need to wait for the tyres to be sent before heading off to morocco.
Most of the people coming to Tarifa do it for the winds... one could see the boards on every camper or car in here. For us the wind isn't that pleasant though...
As soon as the wind picks up (mostly at lunch), the sea is filling up with surfers, windsurfers and kiteboarders.
As its the end of November, the weather is getting more and more unpredictable
and the temperature is falling almost daily. 15 degrees Celsius combined with strong winds and rain let us hope for a quick delivery of the tyres!

the sun is setting in Tarifa

The tyres finally arrived but there is no way we could cross over to morocco these days... thunderstorms, rain, strong winds and even HAIL today morning.
