From Switzerland to Slovenia


We start quite early, first in the direction of Lake Como. There we have an appointment with Dan and Sara Pedersen, who visited us twice in Hamburg last year on their RTW trip (Round-the-world). They are in a hotel for a few days at Lake Como and want to ride to Milan the next day. Driving along Lake Como with the motorcycle trailer is somehow strange. We are pretty on the agreed time and the two expect us already in front of the hotel. Great reunion! Fortunately, we can park our vehicle across from the hotel parking. A few cars want to leave the parking during the time, we are there. Since Markus refuses to drive backwards with the trailer, I have to do that. I am getting enthusiastic applause from Dan. I love his humor!

Unfortunately, we can not stay long and soon after a café we drive on. We hope to meet the Pedersens soon again. It's always fun to be with them.

The drive through Italy is rather boring. Driving with the trailer is boring too. Nevertheless we are making good progress and are close to Trieste in the afternoon, where we make a short detour to my fellow rider from my motorcycle tour in 2013. Another reunion today!

I offer Markus to ride on. So Markus is allowed to drink a bit more of the offered Prosecco. We drive until we reach the highway in Slovenia, where we decide to take a hotel for the night.
