Congosta to Vouzela 22.04.16

We awoke this morning to clear blue skies.

On our 220 mile ride from Congosta, Spain to Vouzela, Portugal we rode through mountains, farmland and vineyards, on a variety of roads.

Our stop for lunch at a new but unfinished petrol station resulted in a 4 course affair, in a tiny cafe which also didn't look finished, but had a paper sign showing that it was open. The food far outweighed expectation, and would also give many half decent restaurants at home a run for their money.

The last 5 miles of today's route were narrow and twisty heading up to our hotel in the hills. The hotel was a recently restored Manor House, worthy of Grand Designs.

All three places we have stayed so far have been absolutely fantastic and each totally different from one another.

A short day tomorrow, we'll let you know how we get on....
