Are you using a filter or doing HDR? The sky in your pictures are fantastic!

... we arrived in Plymouth and a totally drunken english couple came towards us... "You are too late...." we were a little bit confused because we didn't know for what we were too late... the two explained it to us, we missed the one and only motorcycle event...over 5000 motorcycles... oh well, you can't see everything...after this funny conversation we had to move on... I won't forget this alcohol breath for a while




Baaaatmaaan.... I need this T-shirt...with the cape


we had to wait for our ferry... it came at ten pm..




we looked like them... waiting for the ferry...


there it is...


our place to sleep for the night.... comfortable is something different...

Day 20.... a very very very short night.....really cold, people were walking around all the time and the chairs were too sloping to sit and too steep for lying comfortable....
so first we needed a coffee and then we were able to continue driving...


how you can see it is early in the morning..... and WATCH OUT!...we have to drive on the right again... I have been driving on the left for the first meters...


along the coast... beautiful but still cold... maybe the short of sleep is one reason...




perhaps it is better to make a short break to wake up...




the next highlight on our trip... Le Mont Saint Michel...


but first we have to search for the campsite and a supermarket and later we drive to the monastery.....

lunch


after we had lunch we went exploring...


they are bulding a new road at the moment, for this reason the overall picture is not the best...


you can either walk to the isle, go by bus or how you can see it here take the horse and carriage...






"The village"

Day 21 starts…Today we want to drive to Tours…at least 300km milestone for today!

But first we have to breakfast…


after we arrived in Tours we searched for the tourist information office..


a small overview….this church looks really nice…let's go inside…








after we were on the campsite, where we pitched our tent and dismantled the boxes, we went back into the city….

Sightseeing…






at 17.30pm most of the shops were already closed… what's up here? at midday almost everything was closed and then they also shut down so early in the evening… I'd love to have this working hours, too…- oh well, I'm still a student




new generation of bikers…

first we had to braise the onions lightly…


With goat's cheese and baguette……yumyum…delicious


we let the evening come to an end really comfortable…tomorrow we drive to the city of love!!!

Day 22…let's go to PARIS…the last highlight on our journey...



The journey was really monotonous today…Felt like driving straight ahead the whole day...after we found the campsite we pitched our tent, but this was very laborious…




After we have waited for the bus for ages, we arrived in the city at last…




Arc de triomphe…




old metro sign…


and here it is…the Eiffel Tower

Crackin' ride report! And that is one very excellent video also. I'm very impressed with how stable the images were when the camera was on the extension out to the side while you were riding. For your return visit to Scotland you may wish to do wild camping when there are no campsites nearby. Here is a website that gives the basics and has a link to the govt rules on this. Looking forward to following your next adventure!
