bicycle travelling
preparing for 3onTour!

4. February 2019

We stayed quite a long time in Spain, 3 months, but did not do that much of cycling. Bine had a lot of problems with her veins of her left leg which forced us to rest for several weeks.
But we also lost the motivation for travelling especially at the beginning. It had to do with the uninspiring, crowded countryside. With the fact that bush camping was nearly not possible. Also all the restrictions when having a dog in Spain did not support us in enjoying the country.
It was not an easy time for us and it was for sure not the best time of our journey.

But in the end, we had some nice experiences, met some nice people and cycled sometimes through really nice scenery. This gallery should show the positive things we experienced in Spain.

Coming from France we cycled from San Sebastian to Burgos, Salamanca, Caceres, Ciudad Real, Valencia and then the coast up to Barcelona.

The famous city also marks the endpoint of the cycling part of 3onTour after being on the road for 10.000 km and 10 months.
