There’s no going back now.
On Thursday 31st January Norma and I dropped the bike off at the shipping agent’s in Sydney. From there it ships to Barcelona in Spain where we pick it up on April 1st.
Why Barcelona? Well we’d originally hoped to ship into and start our journey from Athens, but unfortunately there weren’t enough bikes wanting to start in Athens, so Barcelona was the next best thing.
The plus side is that there’s a greater chance the passes of Romania will be open because we’ll be riding them a month or so later than originally planned. We also get to see Turkey by this route which you can hopefully access here: https://tinyurl.com/LarryTrip2019
Roll on April the first. More will follow.
