Scotland: a dress-reharsal for the Journey of Dreams

This year I will leave the UK and start wandering around the world with my Milwaukee ‘tractor’ (an Harley-Davidson Sportster).
Before engaging in this new life adventure I want to discover Scotland which unfortunately I never had the chance to visit in my six years in Britain.

My travel through Scotland will be between Saturday the 16th of August and Monday the 1st of September 2014

This will be a kind of dress-reharsal for what is going to be my new life-style very soon…. 

The objective of this ride across Scotland is to discover the natural beauties of that fantastic and magical land, I will appreciate your help in discovering hidden paradise, the story these places, plus I will try to do a photographic documentary.

I will depart from London on Saturday the 16th of August. The first stop will be in Liverpool then I’ll ride a couple of days through the Lake District, and once I will reach Edinburgh and enjoyed the Fringe Festival for a couple of days with some friends, I will participate to the Thunder in the Glens, a massive Harley-Davidson moto-rally with more than 2.000 participants this year.

After the rally I will head to Scapa Flow where I want to spend some days diving.

On my way back to England, I will first visit the legendary Loch Ness, Glasgow, dive with the seals in the Faroe Island and visit some friend in Derby.

Here there’s a more detailed planning:
16/08/2014     London – Liverpool
17/08/2014     Liverpool – Lake District
18/08/2014     Lake District
19/08/2014     Lake District – Edinburgh
20/08/2014     Edinburgh
21/08/2014     Edinburgh
22/08/2014     Edinburgh – Aviemore (rally)
23/08/2014     Aviemore – Grantown-On-Spey (rally)
24/08/2014     Aviemore – Cairngorm Mountain (rally) – or maybe Loch Ness
25/08/2014     Aviemore – Scapa Flow
26/08/2014     Scapa Flow
27/08/2014     Scapa Flow
28/08/2014     Scapa Flow – Isle of Skye
29/08/2014     Isle of Skye – Glasgow
30/08/2014     Glassgow – Farne Island
31/08/2014     Farne Island – “North York Moore National Park” – Derby
01/09/2014     Derby – London

If you are a biker, you can company me, I love sharing my adventures…. otherwise, I will carry a spare helmet and a comfortable seat for a pillion passenger, so I can offer you a ride to follow me in this adventure for one or more days.

In any case, if you find yourself in the possibility to offer me a couch (or your garden, I have a tent) in any of those nights I will be really, really, really, really (and so on….) grateful!!!!!. In return I have a lot of stories to tell, and I am pretty good at cooking… so do not hesitate to request some Italian dish, I’ll be happy to delight your tummy and palate.
