For those of you who dont know it yet – thats my Africa Twin on the latest 2 week trip I did. 4980KM, almost no rain, Bavaria, Vogesen (Alsace-Lorraine), Black Forest, Switzerland, Italy down to Cinque Terre and back through the Alto Adige, Austria and Bavaria (again). What a trip – just what I needed. I returned to Berlin 16 days later refreshed and ready to make some changes. Nothing like getting away from it all to see clearly. I dont remember who said this (or the exact wording), but “traveling allows one to see things [at home] the way they really are”. Thanks to my parents, friends, and bike for making this trip happen and great!
