Summer '14: Britain and Ireland

This summer my father and I took a trip through Britain and Ireland. After taking all the appropriate bridges and ferries we ended up in Newcastle and headed north to Scotland.





After a few days of puttering around we took the ferry from Cairnryan to Larne in Northern Ireland.





We continued south along the west coast and ended up on the Ring of Kerry.The picture though, was taken northwest of Donegal.





After the Ring of Kerry we road to Dublin and took yet another ferry to Holyhead and spent a few days in Wales.





We continued to London before parting ways at Ace Café. I headed south to Brighton and then north stopping in Leicester and finally ending up on the Isle of Man.





After the Isle of Man I rode back up to Scotland for a few days and then it was back to Newcastle for the ferry to the mainland and eventually Sweden. Truly a fantastic holiday!

I enjoyed this, especially the videos. Goes to show, you dont have to go to Mongolia or Tanzania for an adventure motorbike trip.

It's true! The adventure is what you make it! That being said Mongolia and Tanzania sound like some pretty amazing rides!
