It was just six months ago that I placed an advertisement on the Moto Guzzi Club of Great Britain asking if people would help me buy a Moto Guzzi in the UK to tour the UK and Europe.
Six months later I’m sitting at my campsite at Kunzelsau in southern Germany half way through my tour to Europe.
I pinch myself again.
My last post summarised the tour of the northern mainland of Great Britain.
The European part of the journey started with catching the ferry from Newcastle to Amsterdam.
Then to the new TLM premises in Nijmegen, the Netherlands to get a couple of issues I had with the bike sorted out
A quick dash across the German border heading north
To Hirtshals, at the top of the Jutland Peninsula in Denmark a ferry and fishing village and a crossroads for bike travellers
A ferry port for those going to northern Scandinavia
For me I was seeking a taste of Norway
I say a taste because Norway may be revisited. I think Scotland and Norway in one trip was too much high northern latitudes weather for a fellow from the driest of continents.
A dash to Rodby, Denmark thought torrential rain to catch the ferry to Germany
Where it’s warmer and drier.
Yes sometimes I pinch myself to check it’s not a dream.
I’m halfway through this tour and the Alps only 300km south.
