First of all let me apologize for my poor English, my mother tongue is Spanish and, altough I obtained my degree in the US, that was a long time ago and language is like a car, tends to rush if not in use!
Anyway my name is Manuel, aka Manu, I'm from a major city in the north...
Starting to plan a trip next June to celebrate ruby wedding and wife's 65th birthday. Having some years ago enjoyed a 10 day trip to Northern Portugal (stayed in Viano de something or other and toured from there) we had far too little time in Santiago de Compostela, so are thinking about taking...

Drove each way over two days, stopping in Vitoria on the way down and in...

Greetings from Spain
It seems like 2010 was the year for roadtrips to Spain what with ***, DRUK and Carnut13 all driving around the place. While Angie and I have toured Spain a few times on a motorcycle, September saw us do our first trip there on four wheels when we took her SLK over and toured around a few...
