Aperoli in winter wonderland (again)

The weather forecast: rain & cold. Aperoli & us ready for a last Oldtimer weekend this year. Off we go! On the way to Kassel. The reality: rain turned into snow along the way. Surprisingly a lot of that white stuff came down. The last kilometers turned into a first little adventure: it was already…

Aperoli on Tour_stop#4

You think “Ciao Italy” and the grande finale is just about to start. Lago di Como e dello Spluga: 51 (+x) tornante (hair pin curves) for our personal farewell. My job as navigator: looking 90 degrees around the curve for others (bikes, cars, trucks) and tell hubby if free or not (I bet I have…

Aperoli on Tour_ stop#3

3rd stop: Italy 🇮🇹 From the snow into the sunshine & blue sky. Ciao, Bella Italia! We arrived at the lake with its unique shape: with its three branches it looks like an upside down Ypsilon. The lake, where the Milanesi spend their weekends… We are at “Lario” – that’s how the locals call Lago…

Originally we had planned this trip on the motorcycles (yes, hubby made his dream come true: he bought another motoguzzi). It snowed already on…

Rally #3 – canceled

Rally no. 3 cancelled for us: we tested Covid positive (and actually feeling sick…). Bummer. Probably a little souvenir from the USA. Instead of enjoying driving our mini in sunshine under blue sky via the Swabian Alb… we sleep, have pizza delivery and hohes C. Hubby is feeling quite ok again, I suffer from the…

3 days to go….

Our summer rally is about to start. Yeah! 3 days to go… We are registered with start number #103. It’s the Bosch Boxberg Classic, categorized in tradition & sport (not exactly sure anymore why we signed up for the sporty category…. I blame hubbby). Anyhow, start is at the Mercedes Benz Museum in Stuttgart. The…
