…a trip down memory lane!

…a trip down memory lane!

Having basked in an unusual heatwave for the past 5 weeks, England chose the day that our friends arrived from the US, to welcome them, in true British style; torrential rain! I had told Michelle that her arrival would herald the heavens opening and (sadly) I was...

….our last few days with the bike!

….our last few days with the bike!

Arriving back at mum and dads, it was a great relief to see dad looking much better than we had left. Not 100% by any means but better! We had a chill out first day, just relaxing, talking about the trip and sorting all our gear out ready to go back to England. I had...

…Provence-Alpes; the penultimate leg

After a fun couple of days relaxing and enjoying having other people to talk to for the first time in five weeks it was time to move on to the final European destination of this adventure. Up before the sun (& the heat) we headed off to catch the ferry at Porto...

…relaxing in Sardinia

The crossing to Sardinia was just an hour and the sea was as still as can be. We barely had time for a coffee and an ice-cream before we were hopping back on the bike and rolling down the ramp, back into Italy. But man it was HOT! We have to admit to breaking our...

…under the tuscan sun – Part 2

We were lucky how things turned out with this AirBnB, instead of a morning check out, Carlo was happy for us to stay as long as needed. This meant that we could go and relax at the thermal pools and then be able to come back and shower the stinky waters off before...

…riding up through Tuscany – Part 1

Looking back at the night before, it possibly wasn’t the most sensible thing we’ve done this trip! While spending the night in Gerrys Pub celebrating the Brazilian wedding seemed like fun at the time, when we woke up the next morning facing a six hour ride, it didn’t...

…enjoying the Amalfi coast

…enjoying the Amalfi coast

Arriving in Bari the next morning was all very uneventful, we just upped and rolled into Italy, along with several other bikers, hitting the Interstate for the first hour just to get some miles under our belt! We came off the main highway and after a quick gas up and...

…cruising down the coast!

…cruising down the coast!

The following day we packed up and headed for the coast. It was a great ride, very quiet on the roads so we were able to enjoy the twists and turns in true motorbiking fashion! We hit the coast at Senj, and began the two hour ride down the coast line to our next stop....
