San Marino

07-1991 Perched on the top of a rock at 657m of elevation, the 61-sq-km Republic of San Marino is Europe’s third smallest state after the Vatican and Monaco. It was a day trip destination in 1991, on my overland trip to Europe with my family. About 2.1 million...

Monaco

11-2010 This small principality on Cote d’Azur was one of my most recent visits but someone that was with me complained that I have not written about it yet “because you are ashamed of what people might think” as she told  me. So this is Monaco which I was...

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...

Porto #1, Portugal 9/13

Arriving in Porto, we followed the narrow backstreets that our trusted Garmin GPS seems to prefer and found our way to a dusty dirt bag of a campground in an eucalyptus grove. Its sole redeeming point was its proximity to a bus stop that would take us into the center...

Monaco & Italy

Monaco & Italy

When we were in Monaco the beast went on some of the Monaco Grand Prix Circuit, including inside the tunnel. There is no new lap record. There are a few angry Ferrari drivers who were stuck behind us and were unable to get out of second gear and impress the ladies on...
