Corsica/Sardinia-9SK 2016

Mittwoch, 19. Oktober 2016 | Björn Greibig / Franz Pan / Paul Kustermann | Europa

Who would believe that this Disney Land type castle is just a short jaunt from Bologna. A magical start to a magnificent tour... Here are some visuals from the trip from back to start. We begin however with an extra few days with just one special tour-member on her own private extension (Livorno - Cinque Terre - Gardersee - Merano - Seefeld)

After Livorno - The private section

Mary at the Edelweiss Hütte on top of Jaufenpass (one of the most spectacular peaks in the Austrian alps
A glance to the valley from the way back down
And her at Jaufen's Twin-Peak Timmelsjoch
An exhibition of traditional ancient huts at Molina di Ledro near Gardersee
Vernazza on the famed Cinque Terre coast
The coast line of Corniglia in Cinque Terre
A bit of incliment weather on the Italian coast. We spent this day holding out in our santuary.

Absolutely wonderful trip. Judy and I had a great time. To those wondering if there is the freedom to travel on your own. The answer is a strong "YES". We did over 90% of the riding by ourselves. Maps, GPS and planning allows for this. Will eventually get photos and videos edited and downloaded to Facebook. Bjorn, Franz and Paul did a great job.

Juan Carlos: I did not notice during the trip, but reviewing the blog I notice that your face is getting grungier with each day. Did you leave your razor in DF or CDMX as it is now called? Packing light or just running late in the mornings?

Hi Kirk:
I don't know if Juan Carlos is aware of your comment, but I take the opportunity to say hello to Judy and you and wish you the best. Juan Carlos is going to be father this Winter and he has only a gig mustache. Best to you all.
