We had a good nights sleep in the automatic hotel (Very weird) and were now within a short distance of Spain, we could not be bothered to turn around and head back almost a 100km to the Florec turning, and to be honest we ride a Honda and don’t really fit in with ADV that much, so off to  Spain  for us toady.



The automatic gates to the secured parking kept closing on us before we could get the bike out but after a few attempts we were free and heading for Spain. We are down to just two jackets now as the temperature is really beginning to warm up the further South we travel.



We crossed in to Spain just before 14.00 and carried on down the motorway with the intention of camping close to Barcelona, a little way in to Spain was a large Tourist Information office alongside the motorway, how convenient, we relieved them of many maps of Spain but the most useful was a map of campsites, all given free, the petrol and fags were also cheaper here, happy days !


We chose to camp at a place called L’Escala on the Costa Bravo, the sign posting on the Spanish “B” roads was excellent, and not only that, but the local roads were adorned with……err…….Ladies of Pleasure.  I use the term ladies of pleasure to distinguish them from wives, who our ladies of Spending.

It took Linda some time to grasp what these ladies were doing by the roadside (sheltered life) but after a while we were both marking them out of 10 as we passed by.




The campsite was on the very edge of town in a wood land area, 15 euros per night.
