I never plan a lot and don·t know bugger all about motorbikes (exept riding them). I even think that although a pain in the behind, having breakdowns on the way, gets You meeting people!
But I would like opinions about which way you liked the best: 1) dolomites, croatia, greece, romania, bulgaria, and back to Spain or: 2) austria, tchek republic, poland, the 3 little baltic countries , Finland, to north cape and back.
Which one would You recomend? (Lovely both of them, but for this trip, (which I hope will be the first of many, si Dios quiere, I hav·nt got more time.
Thank You - thank You eversomuch ladies and gentlemen--------
love is all we need.... Dan

Hi dan

All these countries are interesting - but you can go anywhere and make it interesting. Be confident in your own judgement - it's just as valid as anyone's.

Buen viaje

Thumbs up out into the unlimited horizons

Hi caminando (a donde vas tio)?
Offcourse You·re right --- I will fill up and go, and see where I end up.
I always did that before! Perhaps it·s just such a long time ago, that I·d forgot my own "modus operandi"!
Cheers .... Dan

I·m gonna swap these wheels for these wheelies ! Old - but beautiful.

All great destinations

I agree with Caminando, all the palces on your list have something incredible to offer. Since you have a little bit of time, I would recommend that if you really like a ride/place, stay and enjoy it rather than trying to rush to your next unknown adventure.

Have a great time, sounds like an awesome trip.

I vote for 1. Although, I'd probably go from A to SLO to RO, otherwise the trip will get very long, but as people have said, all these places are nice.

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.
