Package

Hi Tage,

I just got your letter. So glad to hear that you received 'the package'. I've been tracking it from my end but the best they could tell me was that it had made it to Italy. I am pleasantly surprised that it made it to you intact.

Til we meet again,

Docbru

what's the new year's special dish for Tuscany/Italy?
for Greece a traditional but gradually forgotten dish is Coq_au_vin

have a great time!
post back some pictures if you like.
Coq au Vin? Forgotten? Rubbish! My French wife makes it all the time.

Loving your report.
Ride on.

My friend, you should listen to your inner voice with much more faith and sit on your bike to ride northbound whenever you feel like doing it! For your portion of Fondue (cheese, meat, chocolate… your choice!) a cup of coffee, a chat, a fill up of our long gone olive-oil stock or simply just for the sake of motorcycling!

Look what I have done on the weekend you was iffy:



And look, what I have done this weekend, partially at 16-18°C(!):

Thumb 160.934 km



I'm happy to tell you Bamsefar now has 160.934 km his odo.
In a more arcane scale of things, 160.934 km equals 100.000 miles.

Picture taken today, outside San Miniato, central Tuscany.

Happy "birthday", Bamsefar!
