Talking Riding Across Europe - one girl, one Suzuki VanVan - 12 000km

Hi,
I read ADVforum more than 3 years... and now it's time to make my own Adventure :)
In next weekend (3 september) I will get on my motorbike and I will start journey... with my friend Caroline we will ride across Europe on Suzuki VanVan's. I hope we can count on your tips & guides

Approximate route: Warsaw – Budapest – Transfagarasan – Ohrid – Bar – Bari - Florence – Monaco – Nice – Cannes – Barcelona – Valencia – Gibraltar – Lizbona – Porto – Bilbao – La Rochelle – Luxembourg – Brussels - Amsterdam – Berlin – Warsaw.

Riding Across Europe : 2 girls, 2 Suzuki VanVan's, 12 000km, One Goal - to realize dream because life's adventure!!

*Now after Caroline decide to go back home after 1/3 distance I have to say:
"

Have loads of fun doing your trip. Sounds like a great ride already.

Make sure you leave Warsaw with a new set of tires and if the Transfegarasan is the same road the guy's of "Top Gear" did on their BBC tv show I hope the road is better than it was last year. The part you see on TV is great, but the other side of the mountain is quite a handfull of the worst road I've seen in years.

I hope you post loads of pictures of your trip. I'm looking forward to it..
