Hi just returned from spain. We had a hire car Citroen cross (6????) in the Malaga area.

Now I know where all the good roads have gone from the U.K. . The Spanish have them! Well certainly in the area we were in. Three lane motorways sweeping across gigantic viaducts and mountains with graceful ease & not so much traffic on them until anywhere bear a large town. The coastal road was however busy.

The hire car was an eye opener with a cracking sat nav system . Separate from the dashboard. But set back into it, thus the screen didn’t stick out. Great design points here and there.

The Spanish were absolutely wonderful wherever we went. Filters are in fact so good that in certain circumstances, when the ambient air is already polluted, a diesel car will tend to extract more particles from the air than it emits. Emissions Analytics worked with........etc etc

Sounds good - I'm planning a Malaga road trip for November in the RR - will go via Madrid then Seville on the way there and up the coast on the way back - Alicante & Barcelona - or maybe I'll do it the other way around..... I can't decide Confused

Seems like a good way to spend 3 weeks in November though Cool

Alister , I am sooooooo jealous, this is the trip I have wanted to do pre covid for three or four years. SWMBO insisted we split it into three trips so far, and fly! ~ loved Seville. November and even the coast roads will be quiet.

Word or warning, some of the towns have very very narrow streets. Even the taxi drivers have to guide each other past the jagged edges of the stone walls ! All good fun.

On the last trip, in the hotel I bumped into a friend who went back to Ireland ten years ago… big surprise. Anyway he was advising how he didn’t take the hotel breakfasts and went out. Euro 7 for two instead of the hotel €20.00 per head breakfast. I brought him down to earth with our enjoyable €5.00 lunch for two , two drinks, and three tapas.

A most excellent way to spend November. Enjoy! Filters are in fact so good that in certain circumstances, when the ambient air is already polluted, a diesel car will tend to extract more particles from the air than it emits. Emissions Analytics worked with........etc etc

Thanks - I'm looking forward to it.

I'll remember to breathe in when navigating the narrow streets Laughing

I spend the winter in Andorra so I'm already half way there.
