    Caught 8am Tunnel to Calais then a 300 mile plus trip to Tours In France. Top down from the moment we set off from home.
    Arrived Tours about 5pm then went and had a couple of jars n a meal at the Buffalo Grill.
    Woke up to a very damp start Enroute to the next stop which was Jaca in Spain.
    Top down from Bordeaux approx 12.30 so not a total top up day. Went over the Col de Simplon but was too foggy to take any photos arrived Jaca about 4.30pm. A couple of beers n now going for a bite to eat.
    In the morning we head to Andorra.
    Have now completed around 900 miles and the zed dont look too bad since I have not touched it and had to drive 200 miles through rain

    Bit of a bad day today. Went for a drive but had to cut it short as I have got horrible stabbing pains in my head. I did check to see if kim was trying to do me in.

    Had someone pipping like mad at me only to find it was someone on here. Sadly due to the headache I was not taking too much notice or would have stopped for a catch up. Will let them post up who they are
