Day 9


We set off from A Coruña at our usual time of 11ish and headed South towards Portugal.
Today the weather gods were kind to us and the sun was out for most of the day. There were a few nasty looking clouds flying around, but we managed to avoid them!

Here is a big buildup of clouds, just past the town of . . . . oh dear.


Lunch was around Vigo just north of the Spanish/Portugese border, the roads up to here were fairly quiet and as the area was relatively hilly there were some nice winding roads to open the bikes up on! Although you had to watch out for a fair number of damp patches from the rain the day before!

After lunch the Sat Nav, aptly named Tommy took us through loads of towns to avoid pay roads which slowed us up some what. So after going through the border we thought we should make up some time on one of the above and get to Porto as quick as poss!

Aveiro was recommened to us by a friend of James's and is a fairly small University town with lots of canals 60km south of Porto. We arrived here around 6ish, which would have been 7 save for the fact Portugal is the same time as England! We found a rather splendid room in a Residencia in the middle of town using our international mime/expression/sounds skills and are about to go out and test our pigeon Portugese on the locals!

Thanks for all the messages they are very welcome. Sorry for no replies, we are some what short on Information Technology!
