Riaza, Madrid

After landing in Santander half an hour later than scheduled for no other reason that we were delayed departing due to increased security around the disembarking vehicles entering the UK at Plymouth, we managed to get off the ferry quickly and on our way to our first Spanish overnight stay near Madrid.

The road trip was just spectacular through mountains, in warm sunshine, clear skies and best of all quiet roads. About as far away from the UK situation as you could get. The temperature was mid-twenties at lunchtime, and it was the first time this year we have used the air conditioner.

The 200 mile journey took approximately 4 hours, but that was done at no more than 60 miles an hour as we are travelling in convoy with a couple of friends who own a caravan. They also own a lovely Labrador dog, so it was only fair to allow him to have hourly stops for a brief runabout.

Now we are at our first overnight stop on the Spanish mainland at a lovely site in the mountains which becomes a ski resort in the Winter. Tomorrow, onwards towards the south.
