UK TO Spain on the Tokyo
5 years, our annual holiday consisted of a
3 week break to the Sun, Sand & Sangria
on the Costa Brava on our Honda CBX.
One week was allowed for travelling there
& back through France, then two weeks
of eating, drinking, sleeping & sunbathing
while in Spain. The Tokyo Express(CBX)
was fully serviced & fully loaded for
the journey, with maybe a little too much
luggage, but handled it beautifully.
We usually went via Portsmouth Le Havre,
and stayed with our lovely French friends
in Alencon the first night. The next
morning was the start of the long, carefully
planned, run South via Le Mans, & Tours,
to Poitiers for our next nights stop. Some
blast through France, we like it so much we
don`t hurry unless the road tempts you into
stretching the wire.
Stopped half way down through France once,
sent the girls into a hotel??? To book a room,
but suddenly realised it was a brothel. Did
we get some stick. Found another &
continued next day over the Pyrenees Mountains
into Pas de la Casa, crossing the 2nd highest
pass in Europe, at the one & a quarter
mile high Col du Puymoren. Stayed one
night in the Hotel Panda, Next rode
to the Costa Brava to relax in the Sun for
the best holiday we ever had.
