how I said before, the weather became better from one minute to the next..


and then we reached our interim target.. John O'Groats - the most northern point of Scotland!!!






unfortunately we didn't see some small fishes...wrong time for this..




and see who was here before as well You know them?... this was the starting point of their journey "long way down"

from the most northern point we drove westbound...all the time along the coast.... with pleasant 22 degrees...




It was time for my great fun!!!




this was really exhausting.... but also brilliant! I'd love to try this without the boxes






after 20min I had to stop myself... I didn't want to trash the bike because we were somewhere in the nowhere...


for me it was like christmas and birthday together...

new day... new luck? the expectations were high... a short view out of the tent... disillusionment... bad dark clouds in the sky... but no rain yet....

first pack everything in the morning...


take leave from this awesome place is not easy...


the weather is still ok and the view is amazing..


Taaadaa..


next stop at the moor.. I would not be surprised, when there were sunken some corpse...






breakfast... f*** the cheese was so hot...
