This is a bit of a different sort of I'd Rather Be Riding Here post, as it is just a quick overview and links to a couple sites.
This past summer, Chipps Chippendale, editor of the UK's Singletrack magazine, took a riding holiday to France and Spain. He did a lightweight tour on a Salsa Fargo, climbing a lot of mountain passes, sleeping in campgrounds, and eating in cafes. Sounds like a nice trip doesn't it?
Chipps was kind enough to let us share the links to his trip so here they are. Check 'em out and then try to figure out what you are going to do to break the 'I wish it were me' feelings! -Kid

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.
