During October and November this year we took on our first road trip in our little van which we did a very basic conversion inside. We left our house in Norway as the snow arrived and drove all the way down to the Italian Riviera with the bikes stopping off at various locations to see friends, ride bikes, drink coffee and do a little work.
We started off by stopping off at Klara's parents in Sweden before driving on to Klara's friend Joan's house near Hannover, we then drove on to my friend Jan's house in Tubinger in the south of Germany before spending almost two weeks in Châtel sanding and painting a chalet with my friend Ross (which more than paid for our trip). After some chilly weather here and even some snow we headed further south for what we had come for; sun and dusty trails! We made a quick stop in a very wet Grenoble where I used to go to university before spending some time on the French Riviera around Nice and Menton, meeting some friends and taking part in an enduro race in Sospel. Our couple of days were spent in San Remo and Finale Ligure before we packed up and drove all the way back up north to Norway for the winter.
We've put together a little video of the trip and there will be some photos and a post to follow.
