Many and safe travels!
Subscribed. Wonderful pictures!
Subscribed. Send me a private message when you are near Los Angeles area. You have a place to stay and a garage (with tools) for your Vespa!
This is a very entertaining report!
You don't always need bigger.
Thank you Keith! I'll text you!
True. If you want to travel you will travel!

Time flies! Ive been in Buenos Aires for 3 months now without realizing it! No, Im not staying here because I like it that much! Buenos Aires is a big city and generally, I dont like big cities. I stayed here for that long because I needed to re-organize the whole thing. As Ive already told you, from now on I wont be traveling alone. Alexandra will be traveling with me on the rear seat!
We had to find equipment for her and renew/repair mine, as well as to take care of the vespa so that we wont have any nasty surprises on the road. We also had to finish with some pending obligations back in Greece.
Livefree.com.gr helped us by sending new camping equipment!
Staying that much at the same place was something new for me. It was a break from the routine of the trip: driving for 10 hours, sleeping in the tent etc. I also had the opportunity to improve my cooking skills, to breathe all the air pollution of a big city and get ready to continue!
In front of the Cathedral
Plaza de Mayo
Even if Buenos Aires is a huge city, I liked it! It is a city that lives! You can see people in the streets, places where you can sit for a coffee, restaurants, tourists from all over the world! This city never sleeps! The people here speak loudly: they say what they think and they wont hesitate to talk with you, even if they dont know you. Theyll invite you for an asado (barbeque) at their home, theyll drink, eat, shout
theyll enjoy life!
This city has a character very close to that of Greece!
When I say that this city lives Im not referring only to the part of entertainment. The people here are aware of the socio-political situation in Greece and Europe in general. They even know detailed information about the Greek government: SYRIZA the political party that won the recent elections, the Greek prime ministers name and age
everything. The people I talked to, wanted to know my opinion on the situation and they were interested in conversations on if there is hope for change in Greece, Europe and consequently in rest of the world. The conversations I had on these fields lasted many hours!
In one week, Ill be on the road again and Im already thinking that Ill miss Buenos Aires. I hope that South America is going to provide me with new interesting experiences and many new things to learn!
Stergios & Alexandra
You really have an eye for photography! I'm looking forward to your trip.
I love the detail in your report about what you are spending on food, lodging, fuel, and other stuff. I'm subscribed and looking forward to future updates. Ride safe.
Really great photos :), what camera are you using? (sorry if you've answered this, i looked but might have missed it...)
Superb pictures and information. I love your enthusiasm and determination. Scoots are equally as good as bikes, I have had a few. I love the videos on your YT channel, are you using the Drift HD Ghost as the mount on your helmet looks the same as mine? The quality of image looks so crisp, so I don't think it's a Drift.
I have never been to mainland Greece, but love the island of Crete. Good luck and I will be following your progress.
In Africa I was using a Drift Ghost HD for the videos and some photos and a Samsung NX1000 for most of the photos.
Now I'm using the latest Drift Ghost S for the videos and a Sony A6000 for the photos.
Thanks for your comment!
Yes, the camera that I'm using is a Drift Ghost S (all the on-board scenes).
Some scenes may be shot with my mirror-less camera though.
Greece is also a beautiful country for traveling!
I've never been to Crete but to some other islands.
There are still so many places I haven't explored yet...
But I keep the good stuff for end!
I own a Vespa GTS300 and i thought my trip to San Diego was big
Fantastic pictures! And, what a great trip on a Vespa!
Thank you for taking us along on your fantastic trip! Looks like you are truly enjoying your life! The Vespa, what a great little motorcycle and great reliability to boot.
your photos are amazing, found myself just starring at some of them, the kids eyes faces stunning moments captured by you,
I love the small bike travel stories and the motor rebuild pictures and video.
If you ever make it to southern california "Orange County" hit me up.
Place to stay, food, and a full fabrication shop to use.
Safe travels brother.
Every trip has it's own beauty!
Thanks a lot for the comment and especially for your invitation,
I hope we'll make it to California and meet you!
Been loving the photos and reports, following from facebook and it's awesome!!! Keep up the amazing-ness.
Btw, did the look on that guys face unpacking your bike in Buenos Aires say... "What the hell? Man I DID NOT see this one coming."
Thanks for the comment!!
Yes, all the guys in the airport were surprised with the mighty Vespa!!
