Leon, Spain - mini update

Pre-dawn starts and flat terrain have taken us easily across the Meseta and we are now enjoying a couple of days in the bicycle-unfriendly, difficult-to-navigate, one-way-systems of the otherwise very agreeable city of Leon. Next we continue west through the mountains to Santiago with some very high passes ahead.
Just want to say thank you to everyone who is reading the blog and for posting comments - it´s great to have all your support. I´m glad that people are enjoying the blog. It´s become a key feature of the trip for me - a kind of thread that pulls me through the journey. So please keep reading!

    Good to hear from you, looking forward to seeing who is wearing " The Yellow Jersey" by the time you both reach Santiago. Photographs are excellent.
    Love Mum & Dougie xx

  2. I hope it's a little cooler for you in Spain than it is here in Portugal! Thoroughly enjoying the updates and photos.


  3. Hi Pauline hope its warmer in Spain than it is in Edinburgh. I am enjoying tracking you across Spain. Watch out for the Tour of Spain that started yesterday. Mickey

  4. Really enjoying reading about your adventure, Pauline, I'm awed and jealous in equal measure!
