Travels with my Harley

and, sometimes, other two-wheeled machines


Centres of Excellence !

Saturday, June 5th, 2021 A tour of three “centres” – both real and imagined. Total distance travelled – 221 kilometres At the time of writing, the Covid-19 pandemic still persisted. We were allowed out and about – but leaving the Czech State, whilst theoretically possible, still might have involved mandatory tests and quarantine. It was […]

The “Sand Sculptures” of Písek

May 29th, 2021 As I have mentioned before, I am a member of the local chapter of the Harley Owners Group (HOG). In what we have now, because of Covid-19, come to describe as “normal” times, this is a fairly active chapter. Traditionally, our riding season begins on the first Saturday of April when, whatever […]

Southern Bohemia – Český Krumlov

A “Lockdown Break” to Southern Bohemia – August 2020 The year of 2020 will long be remembered for the disruption and dismay caused to all our lives by the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. With the benefit of hindsight, it is easy to see now that a lot of things were done wrongly, but in […]

Southern Bohemia – The Sugarlump Express

Thursday, August 27th, 2020 – Český Krumlov to Prague Distance travelled – 302 kilometres   As always, I woke up very early – but it was already quite light and the sun was giving serious thought to rising. I left Lucie sleeping, grabbed the camera and headed out. At that time in the morning, it […]

Vietnam – on a moped

Vietnam on two small wheels – 2013 We love to travel to unusual and far away places and we very much prefer to do it under our own schedule. Organised holidays, like sitting on a beach for two weeks, are really not for us. We do like, if possible to have our own transport. This […]

Prague to Ho Chi Minh City

Friday March 8th, 2013 – In Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) The big day came. Before we left, we naturally had the “the backpack is terribly big” and the “no, we need a smaller one” discussions. From long practice, it remained a friendly conversation of “the backpack is terribly heavy” type, from David, with the […]

Ho Chi Minh City to Vinh Long

Saturday. March 9th, 2013 Ho Chi Minh City to Vinh Long Distance travelled : 176 km So, our first real day of holiday started well and then gradually turned into a horror from which we are now recovering and waiting to see what will happen next. I will start with the good. In the morning, […]

Vinh Long

Sunday, March 10th, 2013 – Still in Vinh Long Distance travelled today 0 kilometres – Total distance travelled 176 kilometres I slept unexpectedly well and calmly, nothing seemed to trouble me and I did not want to get up at all in the morning. The room we had was huge and decorated in French colonial […]

Around Vinh Long

Monday, March 11th, 2013 – Around Vinh Long (where else ?) Distance travelled today 0 kilometres – Total distance travelled 176 kilometres We woke up, still in Vinh Long, to another beautiful morning. David was fed up with laying in the room so we both went to breakfast but, this time, I had pork and […]

Vinh Long and the Mekong Delta

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013 – Vinh Long and the Mekong Delta Distance travelled today 5 kilometres – Total distance travelled 181 kilometres We finally managed to have some kind of “proper” tourist experience. There is quite a number of islands in the Mekong Delta and our original plan was to visit one of them and […]
