Fireworks, windmills, cathedrals, flat-out blind corners while taking photographs … it’s all happening for the Wogblogger in Spain:
That’s her MX5 tilting at some Quixotian windmills. Hit the link for brilliant travel latest.

    1. Super photos and great commentary.

      BTW, think of the chick Don Quixote could have collected if he’d been driving an MX5 instead of clopping around on Rocinante.

    1. o/t “trust” meter for N.G.O.s in Australia drops from 34% to 23%.

    1. Hey Zoe:

      I hope you are having as good and wonderful a time in your travels as is possible for a law abiding human 🙂

    1. Ms Wog writes the best travel commentary.
      Do yourself a favour and go and read her adventures.

    1. Gee, I hope that wind farm doesn’t endanger any Orange Bellied Parrots.

    1. Nice to see that Spain is adjusting its economy to the realities of a carbon-constrained future.

    1. Those Spaniards are on a building frenzy. I toured there for about 3 weeks last year and the construction activity was extraordinary.

      Their freeway system makes Australia look medieval. We could’t get an up to date road map they were building freeways so fast.

      We had a rule of thumb for estimating the population of the towns we passed through. Count the number of tower cranes and multiply by 1000. It didn’t matter where you were, every town had tower cranes dominating the skyline.

      Outside Madrid there was a construction site where we counted 65 tower cranes. I could only fit 43 in the photo!!. There were sites like that all over Spain.

      It’s a great place to visit; and the tappas hmmmmmm.

    1. My dad just bought the red version of that very car. Nice piece of kit.

    1. On a slightly related note; is it possible to hire an MX5 for touring in Australia without selecting “convertible” and hoping it’s an MX5 rather than something I should wear pink in?

    1. Motley,

      Yes, it is possible; I first hired an MX5 in Melbourne 16 years ago. From where do you plan to begin your drive?

    1. Sorry for the delay, from Sydney or Melbourne. I’m thinking of buying one and want to do more than 10kms (I have a history of poor purchases). I’m really after one of the 1990s ones with the “cleaner” lines but obviously hiring one would impossible.
