Living in magazines

In this months edition of 'Motoren & Toerisme' there's a 12 page story about our journey.
But this article is only the beginning. From now on you'll see us in talkshows, as your favourite action figure, fleeing the hordes of female fans. And on free vespas. Which is nice!

Impressions Libya

Libya is all we expected it to be: ...

...wind and sand....

... long distances...

... and very long days.

Yes, the windscreens make us look like your grandpa.
Comfy though!

Leptis Magna, and the usual joy historic sites bring us.

Oogjes dicht en snaveltjes toe!

Longwayonavespa & You: Darth Vader

We write all this shit, but who reads it? And where? And why?
Since a while now we've been asking for a photo of you reading the blog, but the feedback has been very poor.
Well, our friend Darth Vader just sent us a video from the Death Star. He seems to be a little disappointed...

"The force is strong in you two young Vespa Riders, but your readers lack in commitment! Here's a message to those who have not yet sent their photo..."
