El Naranjo de Bulnes
A 5 day, 2,700 mile road trip to Spain and back, to climb the Matterhorn of the Iberian Peninsula.
What do you do when you have five days off work, and a classic Mini outside? Simple, you undertake a marathon 2,700 mile drive to the Picos de Europe mountains in northern Spain, to undertake a big-wall rock climb to the summit of the toughest mountain there - the 2,519m high Naranjo de Bulnes.
This was the first adventure of the second Daisy the Mini, taking place only a few weeks after it was bought, in 2007. To read the full story, get a copy of The Road to the East. Or, to get a taste of this somewhat unusual road trip, scroll down to see some of the trip photography.
