    I think your scenery ON the balcony is better. I think it’s awesome that the two of you enjoy travel and riding together.

    BTW Patty seems to take some real nice pics. I like when you post the Flower of the Day. Please keep doing so when you can.

    My wife is always asking me what is the plan for the ride?

    Next time I am just going to say.

    Sometimes traveling with your significant other isn’t easy. We’ve spent the last week parked in a resort town in northern Italy. It’s been great. But somehow Patty knows how to wind me up. Today we were sitting in a cafe watching people and she picked up an Italian travel magazine, pointed at a picture and said “Somewhere”. Brilliant! Let’s go Somewhere

    Just keep reminding her.....like I did with my ex GF's........just one good wheelie and she is GONE!
    But i know you would turn around in 30 seconds, pick her up off the road and you would be riding off to SOMEWHERE, together again.

    It was nice having you both over.
    But after 3 days together, it was obvious my little place was quite small for three.

    When will the rain stop?

    You should think yourself lucky (Patty is an angel), me I cannot get my Thai wife interested in getting on my bike, spoiled her, before we married we would share a rented 110cc step-through and she was as happy as could be, 17 years of marriage later she is far more discerning, air conditioned car or nothing, O for those lost day ? Great thread, looking forward to more.

    Funny. Patty has never liked riding scooters. She didn’t know how to drive when I met her. Now she enjoys driving her fancy truck or sitting on the back of my bikes. She has no desire to ride her own bike. I suspect she just likes making me work hard.

    That will be it, the Thai's are pretty practical people, if we are working then we are not making trouble. Enjoy the ride my friend. I just wish I could do similar with my wife, but I guess I should be careful what I wish for, she could be a nightmare for all I know on a long trip, it however looks like I will never know.

    Having stayed with this thread from its inception there is no 'suspect'.

    Patty wanted to visit Trento again. It’s ok for a city. I booked a place with a terrace for a few nights. Right in the centre of the action.

    And cooked a fish

    Mostly we hung out in Trento, ate too much and walked around people watching. Patty asked me if we have time to go to the dollar mites. I told her they don’t have dollar stores here. She said no the pokey things. Um, ya, we have time for the pokey things

    Eventually it was time to hunt for the pokey things.

    Random stop along the way

    We found our next Airbnb and went for a walk before the rain set in. The dollar mites are hiding here somewhere
