Name Scooter the Rivieras of Southern Europe

From Barcelona to Athens by scooter! What better way to explore the coasts of Spain, France, Italy and more, than with helmet hair.

This once-in-a-lifetime journey will start in Barcelona, Spain with some dancing, up and around France to taste fine wine and cheese, and into Monaco to have a little glam-up and gamble.

Then onto Italy to the rugged coast of Cinque Terre for a few days of rest, and back on the road to the spectacular destination of Venice. After the city of water, we cross though Slovenia to arrive in Croatia's capital, Zagreb.

We then head down the coast of Croatia, crossing through Montenegro and Albania to reach Greece. Our final destination doesn't have to be Athens, I'd love to island hop for a little bit afterwards.

I'm open to anyone coming with me, and I'm more than happy to change parts of the journey/cities/countries we go through. I do want Spain, Italy, Croatia and Greece to be in the itinerary somewhere though.

I have no riding skills whatsoever so don't be put off by the amount of driving we will do. It will probably take 25 to 30 days riding 2 hours per day, but we will stop and rest in places we like, making it a 2 month trip. I will also get on a bike beforehand to get the basics down, but no prior scooter experience is really necessary - if worse comes to worse, we can hire push-bikes!!! Yeah right.

Becfaye Hi Erinna, I'm interested too! It sounds great. Don't know if I can do the full time, but maybe I could join for some of the trip. I'm from Australia too. Any ideas on the license requirements and how much the scooter hire will be?
