    I did Portugal last Autumn, crossed from Newcastle to Amsterdam and then down through Holland, Belgium, France, Northern Spain and into Portugal and back. The country is great for a ride out and the cost of living is really advantageous. The road from the North through the Pico's and onto Potes and Chaves was spectacular and the motorway from Chaves to Lisbon is amazing. No traffic and it's got everything you could want, altitude, twists and turns and attitude. If you are looking for a base I can recommend Obidos. If you want further info let me know.
