4×10 motorvrouwen aan het woord (2/4)

Ik stelde 40 motorvrouwen de volgende vragen: Hoe oud was je toen je je motorrijbewijs hebt gehaald? Waarom ben je motor gaan rijden? Wat is het leukste aan motorrijden? Wat is je mooiste motormoment? Wat is je favoriete road nummer? Wat is de beste tip die je hebt (motor, rijden, kleding, accessoires etc)? In vier…

Last miles to Reykjavik

From Holmavik we drove to West where we stayed at a lake named Skorradalsvatn in a very nice Airbnb. Before arriving we climbed the Grabrok crater which is next to the ring road. Next day we made a little tour in the area of the lake. Riding back to Reykjavik we handed in our motorcycles and explored…

The end of the world

From Akureyri we rode to Holmavik. A small place in the Westfjords. It is a long and scenic ride with large parts unpaved roads. Fortunately the weather was good. But it feels like the end of the world. Lots of people moved out of the Westfjords and not a lot of tourists visit but it…

Whale watching

Entering Akureyri the heart shaped red traffic lights caught my attention. Installed during the crisis to keep up the positive thinking I read later on. Basically everywhere in Iceland there is wifi in bars, restaurants, big supermarkets (Netto, Bonus and Hagkaup) and in the Airbnb’s we rented. After a day rest we decided to go…

Alien landscape

From Egilsstadir to Akureyri is a very special ride. It is like riding through an alien landscape. Winding roads that take you through magnificent valleys with volcanic rocks, mountains and striking light fall over the landscape. Around every corner you get jawbreaking surprises.  We did a small detour to visit the Dettifoss waterfalls which is…

From South to North; fjords

From Höfn we drove north along various fjords to Egilsstadir. Dramatic landscapes but a lot of strong wind. Gusts of wind bashing in to you after rounding fjords is tricky to ride. Just before we arrived in Egilsstadir we drove through a 6 km tunnel. Which was welcome to warm up because temperature gets pretty…

On the move

We are five days on the move now and what a ride! The landscape is changing all the time from a moon landscape to fields with purple flowers to fairy tale like waterfalls and glaciers. Day 1 we drove the Golden circle which is very touristic but worth doing. Day 2 we headed south to…

Reunited

Finally I am reunited with Bumblebee. After a long night flight, bus ride and short walk we arrived at our Airbnb. Today we went by bus to the harbour of Reykjavik in the afternoon and got our bikes back. So nice to ride again after 10 days sabbatical 🙂 First impression of Iceland? Beautiful views,…

Packing & prepping tips

While the bikes already travel by sea from Rotterdam-Cuxhaven-Arhus-Varberg to Iceland we are brainstorming what last stuff to bring by plane. Before the bikes were shipped we had to pack our lugagge on the bikes. And since we know this trip will not be a fashionista trip it is important to bring the essentials and…

Bucket list

Riding around Iceland was on my bucket list for a long time. But who could have thought that I would be riding around Iceland on my own motorbike! We (3 friends, husband and me) explored all 3 options; taking the ferry from Denmark to Iceland, renting bikes on Iceland or shipping our own bikes to…

Welcome :)

Have fun & get inspired by my blogs about exploring our beautiful planet together with my motorbike Bumblebee (Yes, named after the same coloured Transformer autobot) & friends. I will share my experiences and useful information with you in my blogs. And of course all the fun! Because that is what motorcycling and traveling is…
