Next destination: Albania, Theth or a test period for the next big trip

Hey long time no hear… sorry for that!  One reason for that probably is we are planning already our next trip: about 12 month from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, starting May 2018. Another exciting period we are looking forward to! Kerstin’s motorbike was pimped during this summer: a big tank, a proper engine-protection and brand new aluminum cases; besides the usual maintenance. Ready to go for the next lesson: On and off-road in Albania, let´s go first to Theth!

We promised each other that we will all agree immediately to split again if anybody has not fun anymore. So far it was working really well and we were all in good spirits. From time to time Kerstin waved them through so they could speed up and have some fun. Half of the way to Plav there was a gravel turnoff directing to a 2.641m peak where we wanted to meet.

Balkan Trip 2015 2/3 – Gas! Gas! Gas! – Montenegro

Montenegro – Cerna Gora – A real gem for nature lovers and motorcyclists We were wondering what we would discover in Montenegro. Culturally, scenic and not at last the quality of the roads; Kerstin’s large playground/training facility was opened. At the beginning of the famous Kotor Bay we turned north and we wanted to reach the Durmitor National Park before the evening. Pretty soon the streets turned to twisty loops; higher and higher into the mountains. The first impression was really good and there was very little traffic. The scenery was beautiful, the temperatures pleasant and Kerstin tried to adapt to the speed of Sascha more and more. And more and more often Sascha called on the Interphone: “You have to go faster! You are going to tilt over in the curve!” Here it was again “Gas!Gas!Gas!” In Niksic we stopped ​​for shopping and late afternoon we were close to Read More …
