Thanks for alerting me to the fact my photo links are broken in this blog. All the photos are now uploaded on my Around the Adriatic site. I’m in Mandello del Lario back at the B&B Dell’Acqua Bianca and in Moto Guzzi land. Today though, I was off the bike entirely and on a hiking trail that took me to a tiny church up in the mountains. The entire trail followed a river that had countless waterfalls and swimming holes. It was 6 hours of pure bliss, not a difficult hike at alll; plenty of lounging around a swimming hole, sunning on a rock. I didn’t even take my camera! Enjoy the photos and look for dispatch updates soon. My hands are pretty wiped, especially my thumbs, so I need a rest from the motorcycle and the computer. – Carla
Carla, thanks for the great motorcycle travel blog. I run a site that consolidates the best of the web’s motorcycle blogs and I’ve added yours to the site. Check it out at motorcycles.jambango.com. Please feel free to add a link to my site as well.
Is the adriatic as polluted as everyone says it is? I have asthema but love to ride motorcycle in the fresh air of Minnesota. I plan on taking a european trip that would include this region in the south but I have heard the area is thick like soup with air pollution.
Nonetheless, I still think I may give it the old college try and moto through the area.
PS love your blog!
The Adriatic Coast is plagued only with fresh sea breezes. I went as far south as Brindisi, Corfu, and Sarada in Albania. Lovely water, lovely air. The only disappointment is that the Adriatic, like our seas everywhere are becoming, is overfished, so you’ll be served lamb and beef by the seaside, or pay twice the price for a mediocre fillet.
