This map shows you a rough idea of where we have been since leaving home, and where we will potentially be going up until we get to Ireland. Have changed the ferry crossing locations a couple of times, but other than that.. you get the general idea!
We have travelled more than 5000km since picking the bike up on 8th April in Athens, and have had lots of ferry rides and travelled some mighty good roads. Petrol ranges from 1.52 euro to 1.88 euro per litre; interestingly the price on the autostradas in Italy can be 20c higher than on the other roads .. captive audience I guess.
Crikey this first month has gone by quickly!
Soooo .. here we gooooooooo..
25th March – arrived in Athens (we flew with time)
8th April – picked up the bike and caught ferry to Chania in Crete
14th April – ferry from Crete back to Greece and then Greece to Italy
17th April – ferry to Sicily
20th April – ferry from Sicily to Italy
28th April – ferry from Italy to Sardenia
2nd May – ferry from Sardenia to Corsica
From here on, these will be our plans roughly.
6th May – ferry from Corsica to France (Nice)
24th May – ferry from france to the UK
26th May – ferry from UK to the Isle of Man (IOM)
13th June – ferry from IOM to Ireland, where we will stay for three weeks.
After that is yet to be decided..
