Smile How Much Time ? How Much Cash ?

ok, here is my proposed route from scotland to egypt , scotland to the south of france , along the cote,d,azur , cross italy to slovenia , all the way down the dalmatian coast , greece , bulgaria,turkey,syria,jordan, and at last egypt . and the way home will be ,egypt,jordan,syria,turkey , hopefuly then get a ferry over to cyprus to visit my mum in her holiday home in paphos . and then back to turkey , and from there home through , greece , ferry to bari in italy , up into france and ferry home . anyone done a similar route ? i need to have a general idea of just how long it will take . i will be in egypt for at least two week,s and will be visiting most of the obvious tourist sites along the way , but i do not really need or want to rush through everywhere without stopping to just wander around all the places i will be visiting . the furthest i have ever been before on a bike is all over france and into spain . where i can get along fine on around £50.00 a day for fuel,camping/cheap formule1 type hotels and doing all the touristy stuff , museums and so on . so how long should it take ? four /six weeks ? any help on this would be a great help . thank,s

How long is a bit of string?

How long does it take? depends on YOU.

Here I plan on 400 km per day - every 7th day off. Add to that places you want to stop at .. and how long for.... add say 10% for extras ..

How far /fast do you travel in France? I'd reduce it for Egypt ... say half that speed.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine.
