Im lucky enough to get three to four months unpaid leave each winter (the unpaid bit isnt so lucky) and so I want to use this to tour. Having done SE Asia I am now looking for similarly inexpensive places to go. From the UK most non icey places involve a long flight which I would like to avoid. I have thought about riding or training down to southern Portugal/Spain but dont want to spend my time alone in empty tourist towns which are shut. Morroco is a bit scary for me travelling alone (not sure if this is well founded)...anyone got any suggestions. Anyone know what riding in the mediterrean islands is like in winter?
