So a few hundred years later I decided to retake England on the back of my Royal Enfield 500 cc Bullet Electra, La Balita Roja.
So off I went from Madrid on May 29 2013, bundles tied and boots on.
Next morning, shower and no shave (I forgot to bring any shaving cream) and in search of breakfast. The food on board was actually good and not all that expensive considering where we were.
So far, the invasion was going swimmingly. Recalling Felipe II's defeat due to terrible weather, though, I was fearful for how it would go later.
Stay tuned for Part 2: Going Native
