Tomorrow afternoon I'm going to Lörrach (Germany) where I'm loading Heidi into a train that will bring us to Hamburg.

This is the first time I'm travelling by train with a motorbike. I wanted to make the most of this 2,5 weeks and, since the train is travelling during the night, it's a great way of getting extra time in Norway! And... I will skip 900Km of boring German motorway!

If everything happens as scheduled, Saturday morning I'll be in Hamburg and, from there, I'll be heading to Hirtshals (Northern coast of Denmark), where I want to take the late afternoon ferry to Kristiansand (Southern coast of Norway). Let's see how everything goes...

I'll try to keep you posted during the trip! In case I can't, this is the link to a blog I've created to keep my friends updated:

And last but not least, a pic of the team :



Enjoy your ride and by the way gorgeous both you and the bike!

Still alive!

Hi guys,
Thanks for all your ‘post-trip’ messages, they are really appreciated!
Here everything is fine.
I’m really happy you enjoyed the report! I wanted to write more and upload more pics but since August, my workload has been a total nightmare, haven’t had time to even sort/select all my holiday pictures…
And the little free time I’ve had, I’ve spent it doing short long-weekend trips, either with Heidi in Switzerland, with GSita in Spain or with a backpack anywhere
Hopefully I’ll have some time during Xmas to add a ‘Norway pic selection’, between meal and meal, hahahaha!
Big hug,
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.
