Yes, lovely people, today we reached some interesting milestones. First off: Yes, we hit the top of mainland Britain. It was a shame the weather had returned to a more gloomy affair after the unbridled excitement of yesterday’s wall to wall sunshine, but the roads were still nice and twisty – mostly single track – … More Top that!
That Willie Nelson track that we played over and over in Australia has never been more welcome or apt than now. Have a listen, you’ll get what I mean. A full tank, the open road, the odd rain shower (who cares) and there you are – bliss! To be fair it was a bit wet … More On the road again…
Well, it’s been a while but there’s also been a fairly significant interruption to travels which we will all be familiar with…. Anyway, we’re lucky to be back on the road again doing a trip up to bonnie Scotland to do the North Coast 500. But first, as if the blog address wasn’t confusing enough … More Hello, hello, we’re back again!
Sadly we have come to the end of our 4-week adventure. What an adventure it has been too. A haven for outdoor nutters like us with wide, expansive vistas that never fail to impress and roads that are just perfect for motorbikes – bliss. Not surprising that the roads are so lovely in a country … More Home again, home again, jiggety-jig
No time for jet lag You’ve already had a bit of an introduction to our exciting 2-wheel adventures in New Zealand (more on that in the next instalment), now for some 4-wheel adventures with the wonderful Will and Nicky. After a knackering but nice flight and stop-over in Singapore where we got to see up … More Don’t stop me now, we’re having such a good time ….
Gd’day from down under (again) Yes folks, the intrepid explorers are at it again on 2 wheels and this time it’s on the other side of the world in New Zealand. Not on Tom and the Colonel, they wouldn’t hack the travel – especially the Colonel, he’d want first class all the way. No, on … More Hello, hello, we’re back again!!
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. Before that we’d spent a few days in our northern-most location Karumba Point on the Gulf of Carpentaria which was hot and humid but gave us the most spectacular sunsets over the bay – best … More Boats, trains and automobiles (and other forms of transport)
