World Trip A Go!

Although our start has been more in the style of a machine lurching and cranking itself into existence than smooth sailing, we have officially begun our world trip!  And given that it is us I am talking about it I will gladly take that!

Rather than riding off into the sunset on Wednesday, we broke our golden rule of motorcycle travel – never ride at night.  At 12:30 am we left Oma’s garage and began the ride to Patrick’s parent’s in Switzerland. Given that this meant we were only 6 hours past our planned departure this was some sort of miracle. That we arrived at 3 am and that the only casualty were my ears was the second! (they blew off on the autobahn.  🙁  )

The joy was also slightly tampered yesterday when the bill for my Russian and Mongolian visas arrived via email: 650 Euro in total.

But on the bright side that means I HAVE Russian and Mongolian visas, and tomorrow we begin our ride to Italy! With my 2 co-riders:

And the two of the human variety:

It hardly feels real!

    Hi! I discovered you guys from journizing the throne of Gods on youtube (only 9 episodes??), and after I followed your trip around Island via journizer and your blog. I’m very happy for you guys, have some wonderful moments, make a lot of pictures and drive safe! I’m visiting your site daily, so fell free to share whatever you see, whatever you like and whatever makes you happy or sad. I’m watching you! :)All the best, Sorin

    Hi Sorin, there are more episodes from Throne of the Gods coming! It just takes a little bit of time for Andi to create them. The biggest problem is in fact the subtitles believe it or not!Mario, we will be sure to pass on well wishes to everyone as we pass through! 🙂
