For someone who described himself as an ‘appalling rider’ when he first threw his leg over a motorcycle a few short years ago, Kane Avellano has come a long way.

A very long way.
He survived monsoons in India, powerful storms in South America,…

Day No. 33: Leaving Italy

By on May 23, 2016

On my way back I got the ferry from Palermo back to Genoa, like the Sicilian had advised me, and headed back to the same hostel in Milan to have one more chilled day in one of the best hostels I’d stayed in before heading towards the North.

From this…

Day No. 21: Wrong side of the mountain

By on May 21, 2016

As I was crossing from Spain to France, I took a detour via Andorra. The tiny country (it’s equivalent to a third of London in size) was a special place with rugged mountains enclosing one long winding road, which runs through its heart.  Surrounded by breathtaking landscapes and beautiful…

Day No. 9: Garlic, Surfing and Tapas

By on May 19, 2016

I presume Pamplona is not a very young city because when I arrived there was no one to be seen and it seemed almost deserted. I had missed the running of the bulls by two weeks, so the city was probably just relaxing from the thousands of tourists that must have…

Day No. 4: Pyrenees Off-Road

By on May 18, 2016

Bridges were scattered all over the Pyrenees, running over small streams and massive rivers, but I wasn’t complaining – the views from the top were stunning, what more could you ask for?

And this is where Bonnie suffered her first fall. Not her fault of course, but my negligence as…

Day No. 2: Pain aux Chocolat

By on May 17, 2016

After staying at a random campsite close to the Eurotunnel I headed to Alencon next to Le Man to stay with my aunt and her family. I had a great time at her house, catching up with my young cousins and meeting the many animals living with them (namely…

Day No. 1: Newcastle to Ely via York

By on May 16, 2016

It was a sunny day in South Shields when I started on my journey, which seemed like a good omen. With everything packed, my panniers mounted and tires checked, I was ready to leave. Alas, my first hurdle was closer than I thought. As I tried to get Bonnie…
