Exploring Italy


During those months of preparation I am glad to have met lots of bikers who have congratulated me on my project and the adventure I will soon commence.


I have read many books on real adventures taking place all over the world. I have personally met Tiffany Coates who had told me about her RTW adventures over the years. Such an inspirational conversation! So, after such a meeting, will my Italian adventure be a "real" adventure? To be honest, the closer I get to the starting date the more I realise that 6 months will not go by in a blink of the eye. More likely it' s going to be the other way round!

Many are the questions ahead of the trip, from the silliest one of: how will I get my gear washed and cleaned? to the more serious ones like: how will my body cope? Will I be able to stay away from danger? Many others are about expectations: how many bikers will I meet? How many stories will I be listening to along the way?

I'm getting ready for this... are you ready to share this beautiful experience with me?
