Marta, awesome ride report. Looking forward to see some more from your trip. I have family in Sweden and have worked in North Sweden for a couple weeks in Gallivare, North of the Artic Circle. It is a different world up there.

I would love to take a motorcycle trip someday with my cousin Mattias and see some of the places you have just been in person.

Enjoy your Adventure.

Great RR Marta. I have plans to head that way someday myself. As like most other riders, the list of places is great, the time is small. And I've still got just under two years before I can set out on any epic journeys.

Thanks again for the RR

Great trip and report, Marta.

What language was the common language along the way?

What a shock! Yesterday I woke up in Norway and today I’m working in Basel, ugh!!!


When finishing lunch, I’ll quickly go to the parking to take all luggage home (Heidi is still fully loaded!). This morning, when I’ve arrived, I’ve left her in the parking and rushed home to see my cat. Oh my God! How I’ve missed him! He’s doing great, my friends have taken very good care of him!

Looks like the poor thing has suffered a lot due to the heat of the last days and has decided to molt all his fur in one go.
What a pain! The apartment is full of cat fur… I’ve had been brushing him for one hour and the brush got full of fur every time… Have enough stuff for two pillows…

Let’s see if this weekend I can upload more pics and make a summary report of the trip… I’d also like to write the full daily reports (like I did for day 1 and day 2) but not quite sure if I’ll have enough time… (but I’ll try, because this is what I really like doing!)

The day before yesterday I was thinking of going to the Alps this weekend, but today I’ve thought that I better stayed at home and do a bit of work and housekeeping.
Additionally I have pain in my right thumb. Yesterday I trapped it with the door leading to the parking at the hotel in Kristiansand and I think it’s getting worse. If it doesn’t improve in a couple of days, I’ll go to the doctor (maybe there’s some issue with some small bone…).

Yesterday in the night train from Hamburg to Lörrach I did some calculations:

Heidi and I have done 7.400 Km. together (a bit more maybe).
6.400 of these, in Norway

We should add to this the 1.600 Km done by train through Germany and the countless ferries in Scandinavia (need to check the map, but I guess we’ve taken 20 or more!).
According to Heidi’s computer, she has drunk an average of 5.2 liters each 100 Km.
She has also drunk 750 ml of motor oil.
But the best is: we haven’t fallen down! Zero falls! (we were about to fall down a few times, but we managed to stand!)

After this long trip together, we’ve decided that we are made for each other!


Ok, time to go to the parking! As said above, I’ll try to post more things this weekend!

Big hug,

Marta & Heidi.

Marta,
Great pictures. I just rushed through the report today. I will have to take more time later and read everything. I would sure love to ride around Europe soon.
