Start your engines! (25.07.2016 - 28.07.2016)

Resting on our third day on the road I have time to inform you about the current adventure :D

A while ago our little Vespa gang made plans for the summer and this is what we came up with:
Switzerland - Italy - San Marino - Vatican City - Spain - Andorra - France - Monte Carlo
If your wondering how we get from Italy to Spain, we take the ferry from Rome to Barcelona ;)
Sadly not everybody made it to the start line... Rainer didn't get his Vespa approved nor has he the permit to drive its 150cc engine O_o
And Alex managed to "crash" his Vespa which resulted in a broken foot! This left only Patrick aka Winston and me to tackle this.
Of course we started with some mountain passes in Switzerland. So far we did the Oberalp, Spl├╝gen, Maloja and Bernina. There are four more before we turn south but on the last leg back in Switzerland we have seven more mapped out. Hopefully Alex can join us there and show us what his new scooter is made of ;)
So all is well, we managed to "outrun" the rain a couple of time and hope the weather forecast which announces snow down to 1200 meters above sea level. Our the next pass is 2700 m.a.s.l. O_o
