Sounds so much more exciting I think than race circuit don’t you think?!! Bikes, more bikes and a little bit of sightseeing The initial ride down from Cordoba to Jerez was a bit monotonous as we needed to circumnavigate the city and then get some kms under the belt. However, what it did give us … More Circuito de velocidad
Well, it’s about time we got onto 2 wheels again. Aussie Dieter was a blast, but we need to rebalance the blog with motorbike adventures and Tom is really loving this one. Tim is too, but more of that later. This trip is a jaunt down through France and Spain to Jerez and the MotoGP. … More Yes, Tom, Tim and I are at it again!
In the words of Willie Nelson, the final section of our trip has not disappointed: “on the road again, Goin’ places that I’ve never been, Seein’ things that I may never see again, And I can’t wait to get on the road again” Never a truer word but I sincerely hope that we will see … More “On the road again…”
This recent section of the trip has seen us leave the outback proper and get reacquainted with the east coast.

Since the last blog we’ve notched up 7,000 Kms and crossed the Tropic of Capricorn – not something you do every day – and we feel like we’ve experienced some of the ‘real Australia’.

Aussie Dieter hasn’t come a cropper and lost a couple, but we’re talking about a great weekend of two-wheel … More Wine, wide open spaces and wonderful new experiences
…Motoring & Magnificent landscapes, Massive Mammals, Missing Marsupials, Motorbikes, Melbourne and Mosquitos Motoring & Magnificent landscapes: The big road trip has begun! After the great Bathurst 1000 experience, it was back to work for the kids (sorry) and on the road for us. We’re already up to 2,500 km in Aussie Dieter (aka the motorhome – … More Lately I have mostly been considering things that begin with the letter M…
Ok, so it’s got nothing to do with motorbiking this time (yet…) but it’s such an adventure, I need to tell you about it. I should have changed the blog name to HelenandTimsexcellentRVadventures, but frankly I couldn’t be arsed so you will have to allow a bit of poetic licence. Anyway, here we are in … More G’day from Down Under!
‘We’re leaving together But still it’s farewell And maybe we’ll come back To earth (well Cornwall), who can tell? (apologies to all those born after 1986) It’s a tres grand country The roads out of Nice towards the Alps were epic. Yes, I know I’ve said this before and so, yes, we’ve been well and truly … More Europe: “The final countdown”
Well, here we are on the homeward straight and we’ve just crossed over into France – so bonjour tout le monde! Mind you, the final week of the route up and out of Italy has had its fair share of interesting bits. Two immediate points a) the realisation that we were leaving Southern Italy in … More Arrivederci Italia!
