what a view up there ..

look at that village!

It's Castelluccio!!


I’ll tell to you: Saint Francis of Assisi (born Giovanni Francesco di Bernardone; 1181 – died: October 3, 1226) was an Italian Catholic friar and preacher. He founded the men's Franciscan Order, the women’s Order of St.Clare.

PAX and good roads that's what we like...

... and it was bit crowdy

Allright, once again: somehow the computer collapsed! Probably i was just tooo excited about this day!! Great roads, great food, homemade lunch (ravioli with mushroomsand gnocchi al ragu'), a big plasma TV (huuuge!!) to watch Valentino Rossi in Misano riding on the Podium! Superfast today on his Ducati, like the Guatemalans on our tour ...

And lucky they are, 6 of them got tickets for the race!! But we all go tomorrow to his hometown Tavullia, just around the corner to see if the party is still on! If not, we have to start the party, what's pretty easy with the Guatemalans ... they rocked allready first night in Florence, after the first riding day in the irish pub of perugia the waiter had to go home to bring some more bottles - and it wasnt water from Assisi, was a little bit stronger ...

But the day after the sinner went only the long way to assisi (23,9km), to meet the saints ...

here some photos of today:

So another tour is over! Time is flying when you are having fun ...

Everybody came back to Florence safe and happy - and we finished the tour like we started it: with a little bit of Vodka ... was good fun last night! hope you have all a safe flight back home and I hope I see you again!

greetings from tuscany
