Thanks for this! Some great shots and a fun read. You do have a knack for photography.

With running a buisness and one of our dogs getting up there in years we can't travel except to the cottage. So I really appreciate these threads and living vicariously through your travels

Heh, yep! My super patient wife actually let me come back to this scoot three times cuz I didn't like the first shots 🙄 And kept having to step out into the street.... 🤪

Only one shot from today, in Cordoba, which is fine as it means there's so little traffic, thank god,...but where it's also 101F/38C....🔥🔥

Viareggio, Italy.

Could not resist the red Fiat and red Vespa in the same pic

Almost a typical catering here: some Vespas, some motorcycles of mixed brands, more various Piaggio scooters and some Yamaha scoots here and there.

That's a rough one. I saw almost excatly similar in Northern Italy, but did not have my cam/phone at time. It looked like the owner had sand blasted the frame a bit from here and there and then propably applied a transparent layer of laquer on the top....otherwise it looked pretty much identical.

Sad to say, I managed to go through the whole trip without capturing any of the vintakes I saw. There were not many, but a few quite nice ones.

I had this thing of deliberately leaving my phone away when going to dinner or beach....I know, I'm old fashioned.
