More of the Big Cheat

The day started in the van, again, finishing the final quarter of our skipping out on working too hard. From Ribadeo’s funky, friendly, summer tourist vibe, to Parga, a no-place so small that it doesn’t cast a shadow, is about an hours drive. 443 more words

Hoofing it in the mountains

Today is a break from cycling. Fuente De is our spot for two nights. The plan, weather permitting, is to take the tram (they call it a teleférico) to the alpine, in the Parque Nacional Picos de Europa. 208 more words
