you can't forbid me anything


hihi...behind the barricade


our interim target for today is the Isle of Skye...
we wanted to test a B&B too...but many were booked up and those with free rooms were to expensive for us ... 80pounds..

so let's go to the hostel... we got a four-bed-room for 50pounds luxury..


and the best of it... a pub next door...YES...


the evening was really funny because a group of 10 young guys met there...after about 30 minutes the guys were in really good mood and sing along every song...entertaining!

The next morning... woke up in the bed totally relaxed and without hangover first of all I fixed the boxes on the bike...the weather is still dry...


and let's go... we liked it...


The connection to the mainland... There we saw another KLR... in the movie at 09:04...


Breeeeakfast...


after 30kilometers I noticed that I forget to hand over the roomcard at the hotel...so let's go back... the funny thing, we passed a police control three times


after the small detour we saw the next highlight..

Day 13... today it's time for Ireland

but first we had a tasty breakfast...



we had to hurry up to get the ferry in Troon.... but like always we were on time or even a few minutes early... better too early than too late

on the ferry we had to read a little bit in the travel guide to get more informations about Ireland because we didn't had enough time for this before the journey...


after we arrived in Larne we first had to wait until the cars moved over and we had enough place to get off...


of course we had to drive to Belfast first.... up to the castle..






miaouuuuuu...


midday-tiredness... I need coffee


we drove trough the city twice to get an impression of Belfast..

conclusion about Belfast.... unfortunately we were not thrilled by what we saw so much... but maybe we only saw the wrong corners...


but we look forward to see this...




so let's go out of the city...


we found the first attraction quickly


Team Germany was already there....

Thank you :)

To visit the Giant`s Causeway is a must... only shortcoming in Ireland is, that you have to pay for almost everything....for this reason we decided to walk around....






the fight against the dangerous wild animals


very bad glance...

Day 14... Today we drive from Downhill to Letterfrack....

For starters breakfast at the gas station... petrol for our bike, as well as motor oil and for us some coffee and something sweet...


Energyyyyy...


enjoying the secenery...


let's go to the next "highlight"... another stoneheap...I think some Anglo-Saxon collected them




Behind the hill was our next goal, this time it was a waterfall...


The highest waterfall in this region... it was nice but not outstanding...but the journey to it was really funny...we drove the wrong way about five times.....offroad




short break amazing view...
