A Loop around the United Kingdom and Ireland



Hi! I'm Jeff.
Thanks for finding my journals. This one is about a trip I made just before Labor Day 1999. It was a quick, last minute kind of thing where all the right parts happened to come together at the right time. It actually turned out to be a phenomenal experience. The only things that were actually planned and reserved were the ferries to and from England . Everything else was dealt with as it happened. Life is like that sometimes. The best things seem to come from spontaneity, and the ability to deal with whatever the day brings.
This "Loop" starts in Germany, crosses France, to England, then Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland, back to Scotland, then the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, and home. All in six days of riding. It moves fast, so hang on. Hope you enjoy it.
