Four months abroad for less than £1000

“We need to cross the Picos de Europa in northern Spain to ride south to Africa. We take our positions on this new tandem and turn the cranks, wheels pointing southwest. We’ve got a blue sky and a tailwind. We’ve also got hills. Hills and coastline, fresh sea air and excitement. The open road and the freedom to explore. Countries get big when you cross them on a bicycle. What could be a 10 hour train ride becomes a two week adventure. What could be a three course meal in a fancy restaurant becomes a one pot pasta dish cooked up in a bus stop. And what could be a four poster bed becomes a two person tent. The five star hotel traded in for a night sky of five thousand stars. A honeymoon suite for a full moon. And of course a hot shower for a rain shower.
