Hi everyone, I just finished a short photo-video from my last summer (2019) trip from Prague, Czech capital, to Norway and Sweden. It took more than 4.000km in 8 days ...

Enjoy the video!!

@dark:
that was absolutely amazing!!
only a few cold days in a mountains (40F), no one on the road, just the majestic nature and great gravels!!

wanted to go this summer again, however travelling within europe isnt such easy this year (corona), so probably 2021 .. hopefully ..

What a great trip, what beautiful places. The Vespa is also not to bad on gravel roads and great/small for sneeking into interesting places. Thanks for sharing, I did enjoy that.

4000kms in 8 days makes for pretty long days riding. When I collected my scoot I did 2000km in 7 days riding and even then I felt it was way to much riding everyday to really explore and experience the ambience of the places I passed thru. My guess about 200 to 300 kms per day would be a good exploring trip pace.
Thanks.

@kiwi
Yep, the daily mileage was too much, however: summer nights are short+ I spent a lot of miles on German "autobahn" (just refueling and curry-wurst at gas station) - absolutely boring time necessary to get to the Denmark from Prague, Czech (where I live) and cross the sea to Norway .. so the daily average in Norway and Sweden was approx 350-380km ...
