Wicked VIA MEDITERRA - The journey around the Med on a HP2

Hi everyone,
I've been quite for a very long time, sorry for that (in case somebody remembers). Anyway, back on the screen I'd like to share a trip with you that led me 9 months around the Mediterranean Sea. The route went over 3 continents, through 21 countries and had put 40.000kms on the mile-o-meter of the HP2.



I'd like to tell the story on a daily base. Not really a diary but with a tight chronology. I hope you enjoy.

Cheers

Dirk

There are some teasers to give you a little impression about the coming up stories from around the Mediterranean:

Hi Mr. Breeze,
yes, I went alone. Unfortunately none of my buddies could aford such a long time away from home, job etc. For me it was sheer luck to get the time off.

If you wonder about the pictures: Most pics with me in are taken with a remote timer, even if the bike with me on is pretty far away. Not recommendable in crowded places ;-)
