It's an amazing, inspiring story. Others have written of the kindnesses and friendships they've encountered along the road, but few, if any, I'd venture, have captured the essence of those experiences in such a lucid, insightful way. Thanks! I'm guessing you're either on your way to Portugal or are already there hunkering down for the winter. Hope your ride over from Vienna was (is) smooth but fun. Hope the bike's been cured of its ills. If you haven't hit France yet, and your route takes you near Grasse, the Gorge du Verdon is an awesome piece of road/views. Eagerly awaiting the next update!
Thank you for your kind words, I appreciate your enjoyment. Writing everything gets annoying at times but knowing that somebody is actually reading it, puts a smile on my face and makes it worth it.
The road has definitely been bumpy at times but this is truly the most incredible experience I could ever imagine living.
We are currently in the South of France and I love it. Rocky does also, because all of the women here are super sexy. We rode to Gorge du Verdon a couple of days ago. The roads got a little bit scary at times but the view was breathtaking.
We should be in Portugal in the next few weeks. Hopefully with some time to relax, we will be able can catch up on our ride report quickly.
