Ta for the invite to Albarracin! I've never been, it's on my list but not sure 1st of June. I'm a school teacher, primary, so in theory have weekends off but usually just spend Saturday staring at the ceiling so unless there is a puente I don't go for ride expect the Sunday.
Am saving for the summer. I'm off to Italy, Switzerland and France! I did the alps and dolomites last year and I want to do it again! The passes up there are stunning. You been?
You in a great part of the world. I've been through Tremp but not really explored it. Some friends of mine live up in Abella de la Concha. If I am up that way I'll get in touch. Likewise if you are round these parts let me know. I'm not that often on this site so email better.

Hola, just joined the forum and saw your linky etc. Ive done a few Austin Vince/Humm events and eventually bought a finca on the edge of the Els Ports park close to the Ebro between Pauls and Xerta.
Absolutely loving it...hoping to be 50/50 resident next year if plans work out...currently got a 955i Tiger down there with TKC's fitted which is 'interesting'..... Hasta Luego

Thanks again Simon. Just got back from our great trip. Yep it did rain, and the sea was a bit chilly! The sun did appear and the beaches were stunning and virtually empty.
Roads really quiet, bit like the Pyrenees, but overall I'd say the Pyrenees roads/corners are a little more open/sweeping, but I was carrying a pillion this time and the weather wetter in the Picos.
Visited Santiago, Muxia and small fishing resorts amongst other places, and found some great hotels. Still a fair bit of snow high up, and the winds up there were a little fierce to say the least! The scenery was well up to our expectations.
Everyone was very helpful, and although our Spanish is limited to about 10 words we had no problems getting through just by smiling and and waffling. It just added to the experience and our stomachs were usually stuffed for not many Euros!
Probably the most unusual sight was the unique way of pouring cidre from the bottle into a glass- if you've seen it you'll know what I mean! It wasn't just a tourist attraction either, it happened in several bars and was served the same the one and all!
Needless to say- we'll be back!

Thanks for all your help Simon! I'll be reading your trip report later tonight. Think we'll be taking all sorts of clothing to cope with the unpredictable weather!

Thank you for the informatuion that you have been posting on the Forum with regard to the Picos and surrounding areas, I value you knowledge and expertise, the information is excellent.I am thinking of making the trip in September and would be greatful for any information you could pass on in that regard. I am having problems with my Google subscription, so if you have that route you so kindly posted in another format, I would be most greatful.
Any information with regard where to stay i.e.small hotels,and campsites would also be most welcome. I was thinking of maybe spending 7 or 8 days touring round.
Any information you 'have to hand' would be great, but please do not go to any trouble if not.
