So, we’re doing it. We’re going on a 30 day motorcycle trip to Italy in May-June, 2017!
Do what? (Tennessee joke) Wait, what? Why? How? We decided to blog about the whole process – from preparation and planning to our experiences on the trip.
I’ll start with the “why”?
For many years, Kevin and I have wanted to travel to Italy. For years, we have loved motorcycle riding. Why not motorcycle through Italy? Seems reasonable.
Kevin and I have talked over the years about retirement, when we thought it would happen, what it would be like and what WE would be like. We’ve reflected on people that we know who have retired and those that did not have the chance to. We’ve watched friends work their whole lives, working to hit this imaginary line that says it’s okay to let loose, travel and live. We’ve observed that those folks can’t do at 70 what they could do at 40. We can’t be sure of what tomorrow holds, so we have to be purposeful about today.
If our 2010 motorcycle accident taught us anything – life can change in an instant. Like the title of Kevin’s post about the accident, It’s not If, it’s when…the question was not IF we would go to Italy, it was when. So, years ago, I started socking away money, saving for the eventual day. And, it’s finally here.
So there is. The “why” of 30 days on a motorcycle in Italy. Why not?
We hope you’ll tag along with us through the preparation and the trip. We can’t promise that we’ll blog weekly or monthly. After this, we can’t promise that we’ll blog again until the next big trip. Regardless, we hope you enjoy experiencing what we do… RollingOnTwo.
