    Around Europe for 6 months

    Hi everybody.

    After 6 years on the road around the world on my Motorcycle, i finished in Alaska in June 2016, i was a Little bit boring in my new place in San Miguel de Allende / Mexico with my girl firend.

    So we plan to rent the house for 1 year and go for a trip in Europe, as i never seen it well. We did it.

    But as i was a Little bit tired with a long trip on a Bike, ...my back, confort, my age (46), i decided do do it with a camper and the bike on a trailer, (i would use it to visit the country once i'm in).

    We started in April... Italy, Greece, Turkey, Georgia, and back... Turkey and Greece again to go Crete,then Albania, Montenegro, Serbia, Hungaria, Austria, Tcheca, Germany, Danemark, Norway, and we are back to France now, to pass in England at least. Where i'll stay at least 2 or 3 months.
    (As my Mexican girl friend as 3 months in europe, she must stay 3 months out before to come back Shenguen)

    There is a long time i want to visit Scotland, Irland and England. 

    So we are happy both to be soon there.
    We find a lot of people thanks to HU who will receive us. I will let the camper in a garden, and will use the bike to visit.

    I'm curious to see the roads that England has to offer me. A Little bit stress about riding on the other side, but i did it in South Africa, so should be ok.... i just remember that some time the morning when you start...you forget that you are in an other country!...ha ha ha.

    See you soon perhaps in England on my Grey Trophy with French plate.

    Should do Calai to Douvre in less than 8 days, around 15 jully.

    It would be fantastic to see you both when you start your ride around the UK!

    If you have a chance to plan any UK routes and dates it would be good to meet up... :001:

    Hi yannis, that's some Bike ride you have planned,  as RocketSteve  has suggested it would be good to meet up,  as you travel around the UK  :028: ,  if you plan to stop over in Kent,  I'm  just 22 miles from Dover.   I'm sure other UK members will also take the time and excuse   for a  `ride out'  to meet up,  and  say hello.     :821:

    Looking forward to meeting you both, I might need to trim our tree overhang to get your Camper on the drive  :156: :001:
