    Â…because any place without its people becomes boring and therefore, forgettable.

    Thanks, I looked right past that to see the faces.
    Looks of concern, worry, anxiety, and just a few smiles.

    What a great journey and report Stergios. I used to ride Lambrettas in my youth - although I did have a PX150 for a while - so I always enjoy scooter adventures.

    Ride safe.

    Thanks guys!!

    And here is a new report:

    "Our tiny Vespa finally did it! It managed to cross difficult mountain passes, rivers, and climb up to 5,000m of altitude! Nothing can frighten us anymore!
    We hope that on Sunday (day of the referendum in Greece) the Greek people will follow the example of the Vespa, and show their real power to all those who question it.
    In the end, we've lost a lot, let's keep our dignity!"
