The route.

The route.

The route will run from Bruges to Compostela, along Nantes (Normandy coast) to Bruges.

We leave Friday 13 June  2014 and hope to be back home Sunday 29 June 2014
The meaning of this journey is to enjoy a vacation with 4 friends, united by a common hobby, the authentic 2 stroke Vespa Scooter.

We are not plotting out a route beforehand. We know the destination and when we want to be there. A few cities will act as guidelines.

The plan is to choose a town each morning, which is 250/300 km further towards our destination. Hopefully this will bring us to Compostella via some beautiful roads. If all goes well, we would like to make a stop in the Mekka of all Flemish senior citizens, Lourdes.

On the homeward journey we will take the Ferry in Gijon to Saint Nazaire,(France). Back in France we will travel along the coastline where the Normandy beach landings took place in World War 2.

On Sunday 29 June we will arrive back home in Bruges.
