Yes, we're at it again!
Two years ago my fiancé and I set off on an amazing 3 month motorbike adventure trough Europe on a Yamaha XJR1300: Motorcycle Adventure Tour '11
A few months ago, we watched a documentary on Iceland and we both agreed that we must go there on the bike. Unbeknown to us a seed had been planted and soon the touring-bug was in full bloom! So, we thought 'Why not?' and started to plan Motorcycle Adventure Tour - Part 2
In 10 days time we will set off on a 4 month tour through Northern and North-Eastern Europe on a Moto Guzzi Stelvio. We'll have a week and half to casually meander from London to Hirtshals in Denmark, where we'll be hopping on the ferry to Iceland for 3 weeks. On the way back we'll be stopping off at the Faroe Islands for a few days before hitting Scandinavia for several weeks, travelling up to the Arctic Circle via the Norwegian Fjords. The trip shall continue through Russia (St. Petersburg), the Baltic states, Belarus (assuming we can sort out a visa en-route) and Ukraine. Depending on time, we'll either start heading back to Britain through Central Europe or ride down to the Black Sea and make our way back from there. Exciting stuff!
As last time, we'll be travelling two-up and camping most of the time. We'll be using some of our old kit, but have invested in quite a lot of new gear which is better suited to the extreme weather conditions we're expecting to encounter.
We will be updating our blog regularly but this will, of course, be dependant on internet access and available time. If you are keen to follow our shenanigans, you can subscribe to our blog (you will be notified when new entries are uploaded) or just check in when you like. Please be aware that neither of us are avid writers/photographers so please don't expect a blogging-masterpiece, just a simple and honest narration of our adventures. Oh, and please feel free to share your thoughts, suggestions or support using the comment box!
