We leave the port city of Ajaccio (pronounced a-jack-seeoo), the capital of Corsica, the birthplace of Napolean Bonaparte and the largest settlement in Corsica. We are on our way south to the ferry and once more we are reminded how beautiful this south coast is and especially the Bonafacio harbour. The holiday season is building [...]

Twelve kilometres from the northern tip of Sardinia is Corsica and as our ferry approaches land we can see huge white cliffs and buildings perched right on the side of them...what an imposing sight but where is the port? Bonifacio is built precariously right on the edge of the limestone cliffs The natural harbour has [...]

Sardinia has nearly two thousand kilometres of coastline, sandy beaches and a mountainous interior so it serves up a lovely blend of sea, sand and history. We are captivated with its wild hinterland and to leave Seui we must come down the mountains so that means lots more curves and nice motorcycle roads. The riding [...]

So here we are in Sardinia, the second-largest Italian island in the Mediterranean Sea after Sicily. We know very little about it except that the next land south is Africa - so why are we here? Well, apparently, they boast the best motorcycle roads in the world. So, BikesnBeers feel they better just check that [...]

Santorini Island is apparently the number one destination in the world with its incomparable beauty. We know very little about it so now is the time to find out what the hype is all about! It was the site of a volcanic eruption thousands of years ago which left a large caldera (hollow) and ash [...]

We continue down the barren but beautiful Mani peninsula in the Peloponesse to the southernmost point of mainland Europe. The local roads are narrow as we meander through small villages and skirt the steep Taygetos Mountains and they've only been in these parts for the last 20 years so previously you could only access the [...]

We are now a well-oiled machine with gearing up, getting away, seeing the sights and just riding all day. The corner marking is working and everyone seems to like a fast pace. The twisties seem to go on forever - sometimes tighter in places and sometimes with very dodgy road surfaces. None of the corners [...]
