…a town full of waterfalls!

…a town full of waterfalls!

After entering Croatia and still with a few hours of riding still ahead of us, we kept on rolling. It was really noticeable now that we were in a different country and one that has struggled back to some prosperity after the Balkan War of the 90’s. The area was tired...

…who knew Slovenia would be so awesome!

Wow! Whoever knew that Slovenia would offer up such awesomeness! I don’t really know what I was expecting here but it certainly wasn’t this. Research fail…if I had looked at this area properly, I would have known that we were going to be located right in the middle of...

…doing the tourist thing

Today was a pretty crappy day…not bad, four weeks in and the first bleugh day! I don’t know how real you want me to keep this but it’s not all sunshine and roses you know! Also, I was missing Beth. She had cried on the phone the night before and I couldn’t hug her...

…super cool and super hot!

Our ride through to Alleghe, Italy was very diverse! We started the day at the infamous Stelvio Pass, a bikers mecca!Being a Sunday, it was super busy with people, on all forms of transport, heading up through the series of tight hairpins to enjoy a coffee in the sun...

…tunnels, tunnels and more tunnels

Let me refer you back to my previous post that addressed my aversion to tunnels. Well, I said then that I was exaggerating about the tunnels being miles long. On todays ride to Vogorno, they actually were! Tunnel after tunnel after tunnel. Not just your quick one that...

…meeting friends and Instagramming people!

We sadly bade farewell to Chamonix and our lovely view and set off, excited to see what Lauterbrunnen had to offer us. Riding back up through the Col de Montets we breezed on through the unremarkable border into Switzerland and on to Martigny. We enjoyed the sweeping...

…sensory overload

We were up bright and early again for our ride up to the next stop, Chamonix. Again, we were trying to beat the weather and took the main Interstate (or Péage) for half of the ride before turning off for a more scenic option that took us around Lake Annency and up...

…hunting waterfalls!

Having failed to find somewhere to eat and watch the game (see last post), we returned to our lovely AirBnB and settled in to drink wine and plan our ride for the next day! Reviewing the weather forecast and seeing rain in our future (again) we decided on an early...

…rain, rain go away!

Another week has flown by, now the adventure is really beginning…if it ever stops raining! We had a lovely week staying with my mum and dad, catching up and just enjoying our time together again. Added bonus was that Mum & Dads oldest friends, Anne & Ken (the...

…I forgot the socks!

…I forgot the socks!

We are one week in already. The “Great European Adventure” has finally begun, but not without a few hiccups! Despite months and months of almost military precision planning, we have learnt that flexibility is a wonderful form to embrace! As we waved farewell to the...
