Lerici Italy



Our home for 4 days.




Wayne hard at work mapping out where we have been. Some time this big old map beat out our GPS. Like when the GPS is trying to tell you to go down a street that has stairs.






This is what I call a true action shot...to hell with bikes, opening beer is way more exciting!




Leaving Lerici off to the Cinque Terre...wow we though the Amalfi coast had some switch backs, The roads here make it look like a super highway!




It's me!



After the Cinque Terre on route to Genova we drove up to the mts off the coast. What a view!



There was a small church on the top off this pass.


Our next big stop was in Monaco...in my next post but here is a preview of the 1 million Euro watch we checked out, you can barley tell the time on this thing there are so many diamonds!



more soon...

More...

So we set up camp in San Remo, not exactly a ton of camp grounds in Monaco. I'm going to be bummed out when I have to camp back home now. I've become accustom to beach front, wifi, bar etc... oh well!

Here's our spot...right on the water.




Then off to check out Monaco. The yacht show was on so we walked down to see how much it was to get in...100 EUROS! No thanks we look from a distance.


this was a mid range boat...










One of my favorites.








Then up through a great mountain range in France and back in to Italy.





They have these things called "pizza" in Italy, they're not bad!




If there ever was a line of traffic in Italy that nobody could pass chances were that it was one of theses that was holding everything up. I really like the new version of this car though.




Torino was our next stop.







Then off to the amazing Lake Como












Where is everybody in this town??? Oh yeah...stupid siesta





Exploring around we drove up to this vista that overlooked the city.













Next up the Alps!!!!





More soon...

That is a cool trip, but too bad you left out Scandinavia... good scenery there

Where those your bikes or did you rent them?

We bought them in England because I was living there for 6 months before the trip. About 2 weeks before the trip was going to end we put both bikes on Ebay.co.uk. If the situation is right this is the best way to do it. We sold them for a very small loss on what we paid for them....definitely much cheaper the renting for 2+ months.

Did you have to change currency often or were those countries all on the Euro?

What were you doing in England for 6 months? Student?

Most were on the Euro, with the exception of a few eastern countries. I had just sold my apartment back home and my job allows me to work anywhere (futures trader) so it was perfect timing to live somewhere different and then of course take a great trip.
