Urlaub mit dem Mopped auf Kreta im Oktober? Ob das eine gute Idee war?

Mal sehen:

Die Moppeds haben wir bei Eurodriver gemietet. Yannis, unser Vermieter hatte die Böcke am Vortag an unserem ersten Hotel abgestellt und uns am Tag der Übergabe pünktlich um 11 Uhr die Turnsportgeräte übergeben.

Yannis spricht gut Deutsch und die Technik war in einem ordentlichen Zustand. Als Yannis dann hörte, dass wir in den 7 Tagen rund um die Insel fahren wollen, hat er für uns noch flugs eine Dose Kettenspray organisiert. Und wie sich herausstellen wird, sind die beiden XTs für die Bedingungen auf …

 China 2016 – a Motorbike Trip in Yunnan (short version)



The tour is starting in Dali and is taking us via Shaxi into the Tiger Leaping Gorge. This area is really showing off with giant rocks, deep gorges and the massive power of the river. In case you decide to take some time for  a sweaty hike you will be rewarded with some unbelievable impressions from the nature. After this your thighs may hurt, but at least for us it was worth it to do this exhausting  hike.

After this the tour took us through endless turns and small …
