Day 5-7 I rode to Gibraltar for a little English influence then on to Almeria another surprisingly quaint town that was hard to leave. Vamos el Sur de Espana!
Moto Day 5 - Sevilla to La Linea/Gibraltar (250 km)
On a brand new back tire I took the short 1hr ride to Cadiz to warm the tire up and have a snoop around this highly talked about peninsula city. C4R7T6V5 Road opened up after getting out of Sevilla.

Riding in to La Linea looking at the Rock of Gibraltar. Parked the moto near the hotel, lunched and napped then walked over the border in to the UK for a look around Gibraltar.
