The round about way to Corsica

The round about way to Corsica

We have booked ferry tickets to Bastia,Corsica from Livorno, Italy. We chose this crossing since it is only 4 1/2 hours and leaves and arrives in the day time. The more southern crossing to Sardinia is an overnight ferry with the need for an expensive stateroom. The...
Lake Como & Milano

Lake Como & Milano

We woke to overcast and some drizzle, but it soon dried up.   There is a massive fort on the hill above Briancon. We had decided after yesterdays issues with the closed passes we would head over the alps to Italy on the toll road to prevent issues. We really...
Homeward Bound

Homeward Bound

Home. After a mad dash across Italy and France, I can finally stop and draw breath. The problem was that, as ever, there was not enough time. There never is. Every place we travelled through, we went slower, stayed longer than we had time for. And it still wasn’t slow...
Onward We Go!

Onward We Go!

Keeping posts coming with the regularity that you, our valued readers, deserve can be quite difficult at times. In my defense (Rebecca), we’ve been on the road consistently for the last few weeks and have been drinking and relaxing on the Med with friends, which is...

Italy, no bikes

Italy, no bikes

Just returned from a week in Italy, no motorcycles but the tourist way via aeroplane & hire car. Flying into Nice last Saturday with Easyjet, an easy 2 1/2 hour flight that transports you from the frozen North to the Sunny Cote Azure. I still prefer to travel by...
The Hills are Alive!

The Hills are Alive!

Leaving France and the cheese behind, we hopped over the border into the south of Germany near Freiburg. First to the Bodensee, better known to most Brits as Lake Constance (not sure why we English feel the need to rename places in our own language, when the locals...
Overlanding Austria

Overlanding Austria

We passed through Austria on our way south (to Italy) and then again on our way back. The first time we travelled the Silvretta High Alpine road and the second time we travelled the Grossglockner High Alpine road. The Grossglockner is fabulously scenic and is probably...
