Europe tripI have added a link to some photos of our Europe motorcycle trip in June this year. We left the UK on the 11th of June 2009, down to Folkstone and onto the Channel Tunnel to Calais.

The idea was to meet up with friends in Nice, France, but we ended up only staying for one night. The French motorway riding was not so much fun and very expensive, but we had to make up the miles.

We ended up in Nice 3 days later, the 14th of June and from there we returned via Italy, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Belgium and back at home on the 18th of June.

It consisted mainly of camping, one night in a hotel in Calais, one night in Formula 1 hotel in Marseilles. We also camped at a petrol station somewhere in France for one night which was fun ..

It was my very first long distance motorcycle trip and it was awesome, hence the new found love for our ultimate, UK to Cape Town.

Here is the link to the photos ..
