We have been on a little road trip. First stop was Lake Como in the North of Italy. From there we went to Florence passing the beautiful Portofino and the lovely Cinque Terra. We were spending four days in Florence enjoying the architecture and the atmosphere.

In Pisa we met a friend on a Triumph. We had a nice pizza and went to Corsica together. On the way home we passed the Dolomites and Grossglockner. Toadally, we were riding a little more than 6000 kilometres in three weeks - on our tiny little red Vespa!

Ponte Vecchio The Leaning Tower Nice road
Another nice road Dolomites Grossglockner


The Vespa turned out to be a real piggy bank. Even though we made a detour visiting the great blues musician Denny Newman in the southwest of Germany and Saint Gotthard in Switzerland, we were using only 68 litres of gas on the outward journey.

The saddle could be better, however. We were riding from Zell am See to Copenhagen at one go (except for refueling) and our bottoms were aching a little after just 15 hours.

The photos were shot using my trysty old Olympus Pen. Click here for a slideshow...

All the best, Froggy and Niels
