I've got lots of dream places but my real dream is having time to do it without having to rush back for work. There have only been a couple of trips where living out of a tent has become normal.

That said I watched an old topgear last night and they went from the Amazon to the Pacific over the Andes, the variety and beauty of the trip was brilliant. That would be awesome.
And now, Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.

It is the journey, not the destination that matters...

When I started reading adventure travel books by Graham Field, Bernard Smith and Elizabeth Beard I wanted to travel to Mongolia and the furthest bit of Russia. Then I watched the fella who walked the Himalayas (Leighton Wood?) and realised I'm probably not tough enough! Also with a young family (9 and 12) but being an old dad (53) with a retirement age of 67 (currently) I'll probably be dead anyway before I get the time

I've done three tours of Western Europe and seen some fantastic scenery and met some brilliant bikers (mainly ABR'ers) a few of whom have become friends. Everything else is UK mainland based so Wales, Yorkshire, Cumbria and Scotland. That's what I can fit in between work and home life and that's what I have to suck the marrowbone of life out of. Still a lot of fun though!

Australia attracts me but I know it shouldn't. Probably better off in NZ.

In the 90s I went on a 4800 miles trip in Australia. Brisbane to Darwin and back on a Harley Soft Tail Springer. There was around 18 of us and I had my then 11 year old son on the pillion. We slept rough most nights and got pissed pretty well every night. Great times with good people.

A few years back we travelled down to Cape Town although some of the places along the way (Kenya, Zanzibar, Lake Malawi, Victoria Falls - to list just a few) were better than the final destination.

More conservative these days so my current favourite destination is Le Lavandou, slightly out of season. It’s a good 10 hour ride from here and a lovely place with great fish restaurants.
