Ah, the joys of photography

Err, not exactly knowing which situations you're talking about.

This for the sunglasses?




That will be in the Turkey chapter. And gloves???

Give me a hint!

Hi.

Thank you for so nice report, im having a great time reading you and what can i say about your photos .

Im in a moment were im forced to stay still and spent time far from adventures but thanks to you it is going easier and harder at same time. I enjoy your adventure and look foward into my own trip. Dont know were, when or how long, but in the end how important are those details?

I wonder were are you from!
Im living since im 12 in North Spain (im 31) but i was born i lived in Düsseldorf (Benrath), since i follow you i like to imagine Dusseldorf as starting point of a great adventure!

May be some time we met over there or in North Spain.

Impresionante

I have to chime in. I've enjoyed the photos imensely. My son and I are getting ready to ride all over Mexico in June. He is taking a photography class as a Senior in High School. I'm telling him to read this report to get some ideas for us to film ourselves in Mexico. If I could get one image to look even remotely like these...I'd love it!

Now I know why most adventure riders are also photographer...

Adventure riders go to far places to see nice view and capture it then they shared it...

Photography is now enjoyable than before, lots of new features that will give us so much fun...

Nice ride report, hope for more!

The History is as integral as the photos! Sorry for the old quote but I just discovered this and am hurrying to catch up!

Cheers for now

Good thing I wasn't there. At first I thought it was cheese!

Hi folks,
I'm very sorry that it will take a moment to cure your impatience. I'm drowning in work and some other business. Believe me, I'm impatient, too and I will continue the story as soon as possible. Hope you'll be back reading when I'm back writing

Cheers
