Thanks for your nice words. The link to the post is the smiley face. I guess that was a bad idea

Io sono originario di Busto Arsizio, tu dove vivi? Sono curioso di sapere qual'e' questo weird bit of North Eastern Italy

In effetti Samuele mi pareva un nome non del tutto Britannico..!
Sono un mezzo Scozzese mezzo Cileno trapiantatosi dalle parti di Trieste, un weird north east, detto in senso positivo che quando avrai la possibilità di visitarlo sarà un piacere mostrarti e darti modo di capire che cosa rende questa zona davvero unica, e senz'altro particolarmente "weird"... !
Grazie ancora e complimenti per l'ottimo ed interessante lavoro che stai facendo con questi tuoi articoli.

BTW I got the bit about the smiley about 20 seconds after posting...!

An half-scottish/half-chilean guy that lives in Trieste. That's what I call an interesting mix !!! Anyway, my mum is from Porcia, in Friuli. However, despite being in the same region, Trieste is indeed a very peculiar place. Like most "border cities" I guess. Beatiful place though, and you are close to some nice rides

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. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
