Three years ago I wrote, or spoke, a follow up to my book Errant In Iberia. It’s an audiobook, that I sold on this site for a while. I’ve decided to open it up again, this time for free download. If you listen, do leave a comment and let me know what you think of it. I haven’t actually listened to it again since recording it, and many things have changed since then – perhaps it’s time I wrote or spoke another sequel!

Madrid Confessions – Photos
Here are some photos that go with the narrative of The Madrid Confessions…
First of all, the pink flat from chapter 2, here as it was when in the hands of the previous owners…
… what we did to it soon after purchase!
Here is the bottom of the plaza near the Bernabeu stadium (seen behind) where the horrible scenes nearly occured in Chapter 6:
And here is a view of the run-down bullring near Toledo where the ‘Hemmingway’ events took place (with the bar at the top of the stands at the back):
Below is me with my Royal Enfield in India (Chapter 7). The organisers of the ride insisted we wore this protective motorcross body armour, which is a very sensible idea given the terrain and driving conditions in India, but made us look ridiculous compared to the local riders who went around in flip-flops!
And an example of the meditative, mesmerizing landscapes we rode past:
There’s more on that trip in my Enduro India podcast.
One more podcast you may enjoy is ‘The Institute of Cold‘ – it’s another story from recent years here in Madrid that could well have been a chapter in ‘The Madrid Confessions’. (This story was read from a script, unlike The Madrid Confessions).
