From ´bonjour´ to ´hola´

I can’t believe I’ve finally made it to Spain.
In a little under a month (I crossed the Italy/France border on the 4th of July), I biked from Italy to Spain.

The last 12 km in France, along the coast, were beautiful and like a rollercoaster. A French guy on a roadbike pushed me up quite a bit of the climbs. It was amazing how much power he had, and we went really fast up the hill. I should have tried to convince him to follow me on the rest of the trip.

There was no one at the border crossing.

and in only 153 and a half hours of biking, I have made it to Spain!

I biked to Figueres and went to the Dali museum. That man was out of his mind. His art is awesome.

argh the computer I’m on really sucks so I can’t upload all my photos, but I do have some up of the Dali museum.

My plan is to bike to Barcelona, and I don’t know what I’ll do from there. It depends on the heat and the mountains…
