    Why wait? Never know what the future will bring. That's kind of why I did this now. Just healthy enough (got a kidney transplant 5 years ago) had some money, did it.

    You know what they say about life is what happens while you're making other plans?

    Might as well get over there while you can, even for just a couple of weeks, if you're fortunate enough to where your plans pan out then all the better.




    How were the bike rental prices from Italy? I think next time we're flying into Spain, hit Portugal, then focus on France and Italy. A couple of guys I know went to the Alps in July as well and they rented from Spain and the bikes were 40%-50% cheaper than in Switzerland.

    Very nice! I am looking to do a Euro tour similar to this, between 10 and 14 days. Do you still have the GPS tracks? I will use this page as one of my resources.

    Sorry for the late reply, I don't check ADV much anymore.

    And sorry but I actually don't have GPS tracks because i wasn't running one on this trip. Just the SPOT tracks I posted on post #48.
