So, one week to go. Sitting on the boat with our clothes, camping kit and lots of books about Italy around us, trying to figure out how on earth to fit it all into our bike luggage. Gary has figured out that we have 90L of space which is basically one small suitcase between us - FUN! Gary would like to use the other F word..... The ferry is booked for silly o'clock next Monday and our first night in Reims, France. We have tickets booked for the MotoGP in Mugello on 3rd and 4th July and a hotel with mates the night after. That is all we have booked, the rest is going to be a big adventure. Can't wait to leave the rain and hit the Italian countryside.
The bike has had a bit of TLC at the hands of the Bike Dr - Vinny. New rear tyre, new clutch, a Scottoiler fitted and an oil and filter change. Ready to go.
We'll try and update this blog as much as possible, as and when we find an internet cafe and can upload our pics and jot down our route..........watch this space.................
Jacked in our jobs. Living the Dream. You only live once and we intend to LIVE IT!!
We plan to travel on and off for the next few years, contracting in between trips to save money and pay off trips we've been on.
So, so far we have worked two ski seasons (one in Zermatt, Switzerland and one in Chamonix, France), toured Italy on a motorbike for 2 months and spent a month white water rafting and wild camping in the grand canyon. Our next planned trip is approximately 6 months backpacking South East Asia.
