Kreta

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 …

Escape from Winter 2017 – Review

A little more than 1.200km in approx. one week. This was our trip to Lagos. Our rental bikes have been a MT-07 as well as a BMW 650GS. Both bikes are doing the Job, but the sound of both bikes is a little like a persisting wet fart. Next time we will go again for a XT660 – the sound is a lot better and there is more power at lo RPM.

But i don’t like to complain too much – the bikes have been technically o.k. and they showed us for one week the Algarve.

I am afraid that …

Lagos!

 

The idea to escape from winter is more common as we expected. The travel agency showed us many Hotels, however most of them had been already booked out between Christmas and New Year. But thanks to our special whishes and the fact that we do not like to be right next to the beach we found a nice Hotel. Our criterias: Spa, no young children. Now we are at the Marina Club which hopefully meets our requirements 🙂

Gran Canaria – Escape from Winter

Terrible Touristic Airlines

After this short week i remeber why i do not like the touristic airplanes:

Somehow everything is more hectic, noisy and stressful compared to the regular flights. There are significantly more children on these airlines and we had the blessing of one strong smelling specimen sitting in front of us, which had to use all the available throw-up bags.

The Pilot as did the best job in finding every single pothole and he landed the plane not straight, but very hard on the runway. But anyway, we arrived and that all that matters.

Accomodation in Maspalomas

Run Away from Winter!

Long dark cold days and the can’t sit still anymore? We rushed to a travel agency bevor we suffer a winter depression. Today we booked one week on Gran Canaria to enjoy the sun.

I read already a lot about Gran Canaria from LeFronc and now it’s time to make this experience on my own. A package holiday, Sun and some turns – i am exicted to see what we can expect.

We requested the motorbikes today at Moto&Bike, becuase the shop is just a few streets away from our Hotel in Maspalomas. Just hoping that we really get …
