    The weather is getting worth and the hours of sunshine are less....
    For this reason I am going to describe our tour a little bit more in detail [​IMG]

    Somehow we had the idea of travelling to Scotland...mhh... rain, fog and even more rain? after some investigation in the internet we made the decision.....Let's go to the islands [​IMG]

    So first we collected a lot of travel guides and maps from friends.... but we didn't have a read of everything...because of lack of space we took photos and put them on our tablet..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The day of our departure drew closer and we found the remaining things together...

    [​IMG]

    A view on the mileage ...

    Lash everything together.... Ready to ride [​IMG]

    Finally our journey could begin! At our first day we went to Bastogne...

    [​IMG]

    good, this border crossing is nothing special for us anymore (20km from home), but belongs to the album somehow...

    [​IMG]

    After about 100km we saw the first thunderstorm! Dark clouds over Bitche...well, short break at the bakery...

    [​IMG]

    we weren't the only ones searching for protection at the bakery, but we wanted to start the engine again...so we put on our waterproofs...

    [​IMG]

    after 10km we had the first thunderstorm behind us and we could enjoy the sleepy France...
    to the left and the right there were sometimes bunkers to discover [​IMG]

    I try to post more frequent to avoid that it gets boring here [​IMG]

    As been said already, in Bastogne everything is about the second world war and the beloved belgian fries...

    Let's go to the next highlight in this village...the matching memorial in form of a star...

    ok, no star... it's a tank
    [​IMG]

    also no star....bird...

    [​IMG]

    ham ham ham..... [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ....during the night we had the first rain and in the morning it was cloudy but dry...the animals don't care anyway...

    [​IMG]

    until now the bike looks new [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Along the country roads we passed a lot of small stonehouses... might england look like this?
