    You haven't been on Paul's RR yet? You'll need a little reading time to get caught up:lol3

    I did like the way your RR ended and I have been following @rtwpaul from the beginning of his RR so what I would like to know is how you & Paul met when he traveled to England? :dunno

    Thank you so much for your kind words, everyone!

    I think it would be best to simply start a new thread about how I almost quit motorcycling, then took off to ride the world again... with Paul :D Just have to come up with a new name and direction!

    For now, here' a little teaser preview...

    It might be a little personal...but how do you dry that mop when you get caught in the rain? It must take forever and your helmet must be ready to ferment, ha ha.

    You look like a maiden dressed up asa knight of old - you just need a jousting stick or lance - you are already in motorcycle armour and helmet. Maybe you are more a "motorcycle maiden knight of the round earth" than a "knight of the round table". The motorcycle maiden and knight of the round earth, Sir Paul and Sir EvergreenE, meet and ride off into the global sunset together. But Sir EvergreenE has a secret, she has swallowed the magic feathered quill, and she can't stop writing. Sir Paul's secret is that he has swallowed the magic eye, and he can't stop seeing and photographing things. Writing and seeing, the two motorcycle maiden and knight, traverse the world, leaving an internet trail behind them on ADVrider.....

    Thanks Egle for for sharing this part of your life with us! Your words are brilliant, such as your adventure, that goes beyond than just facts / towns / roads list, a real human trip, around the world, and inside yourself, that's what I call a real trip!

    Voted with a like!

    Thanks for your time, words, thoughts. Also for your choice of subjects & meeting up with Paul, the combination of your words (His pretty good also) with his Photography, is captivating.
    Just donated to your book, the best to you both.

    EDIT:
    Guess I'm a little late to the party, here, BUT....

    WOW. Thanks for putting an ending to a story we've lived, laughed, cried, breathed & held our breath over, dreamt and revisited time and time again, together - for the past couple/few years.

    Thank you SO much for coming back to this, Egle. To finish this story in the midst of all that is going on now, is... well that alone is as epic as anything, more epic than many things.
    so whoops, I probably hit the "like" button, because... I LIKE IT. Too bad there's not a "LOVE" button cuz I'da wore that sucker out by now. Pretty sure we've all transcended "like" at this point. :lol3

    BUT...
    that was then and this is now. It's over and tho this RR will live forever; your RR has maybe more likes in less posts than anything else any of us will ever see...
    Of course, please, ma'am.. do what you will, do what you feel, but... I "vote" for you, for us, to let. it. go.

    Although no words are sufficient to express my love for this story and the fact of your return to it,
    I'm generally way more an
    "its-ok-to-turn-the-page-and-move-on" kinda person, than I am the 'jesus-I-love-this-shit-&-cant-no-I-wont-let-it-go" kind.

    And I think that's who you are, too.
    So I encourage you to keep us looped into what's happening NOW, close this out and move forward.
    Thanks, Egle... for bringing us along, for bringing it back again & again, and thanks for transforming our lives in the process of transforming your own. image.png

    It's been real
    It's been fun
    It's been real fun
    Ciao 4 now, darling.

    I'm not a rider at all. But I love travel, and geography, and good stories, and South American indigenous tribes/histories/civilizations/Brazilian music...

    So I found out about this site completely by accident. And joined SOLELY because of this RR.

    Thank you. Your writing and pictures are wonderful!
