Just wondering who else has a trip planned out to Spain next year? I will be doing my first solo trip outside the UK in June as I was out in the Picos de Europa in 2019 and loved it. This time also having a ride through the Spanish Pyrenees just so I can tick it off the list. I will not be doing any off road just gravel roads at most as the Tiger 660 is not meant for anything more than that as you know. Gonna be a good year I feel next year with the new bike and this trip. This is the route I have plotted after doing a lot of research. Only have 9 days so ferry to Bilabo and back from Santander.

That looks epic.  Been pondering something like this for a long time.

The ferry is stupid money these days and almost double what it was couple years ago. Not getting any younger so plan something...

I don't have the trouble with the price of the ferry, but with current fuel prices and French toll roads, the ferry might actually be cheaper. ;)

It does look like a very nice trip.

I actually like the ferry journey and getting to destination nice and fresh. I spent a lot of time on deck last time with camera in hand awaiting for a whale to surface. It was actually raining quite a bit so I assumed the reason I did not see even one whale is that they do not like to get wet  :icon_biggrin:
