Pedalling Portugal – Photo report

In early March 2016, I found myself in a deserted coach station in Spain. At my feet lay my bike, wrapped in industrial size bin bags. Next to it, my four panniers rested in a line ready to be mounted on the racks. And I stood in front of them, the reality of my journey slowly sinking in. Eventually I hooked the panniers to their rightful place. I got on the bike and off I went. This is what I saw.
For 32 weeks, I will post a batch of photos every Monday morning.
Later words and sounds will come. But for now, I’m going to share what I experienced through the photos I took. If you miss a post, go to this page to find all the links.

After a lot of ascending, I began to cycle downwards and discovered that closer to sea level, Spring had finally arrived.

    • The photos are actually on different days and different regions of Spain.
      The first one was taken in San Gil in Extremadura in Spain (not very far from Plasencia). The second and third photos were taken around the Caparra archeological site (still in Extremadura). The fourth was taken on the road between San Gil and Caceres (still in Extremadura). And the last one is from El Real de la Jara on my first day in Andalucia.

      The flowers were amazing. After a couple of weeks with bare branches and frost all around, it was a shock to the system to see so much colour in the landscape. I kept stopping just to look at the flowers 🙂
