Tips/buddies for London to Barcelona tour?
I’m doing a tour from London to Barcelona (via Paris, Bordeaux, San Sebastian, Bilbao and Zaragoza) over the whole of March. The rough itinerary is here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1336GetsbDGJcsMlOPOYemjdJL-LZTu3v1zE-F2ToT5c/edit?usp=sharing 1
I’m looking for:
- Tips for any part – hotels/couchsurfing, routes, friends in any of the cities I’m going through, etc. I’ve done London to Paris before so pretty okay for that stretch.
- People to accompany me for any part of this. I can probably re-jig elements of the itinerary to suit your needs (eg a weekend).
- Tips for long tours – efficiently packing panniers, items I cannot live without (eg a small pouch-style backpack), keeping costs down, things to think of for contingency plans etc.
