Scottish Islands

800 km tour of 13 Scottish Islands

 

Ho conosciuto John Hutchinson durante un viaggio in Scozia, non in bici stavolta.
John ritornava dal suo tour delle 13 isole della Scozia, lui sì in bici.
La soddisfazione apparteneva al suo sguardo. Osservandolo, lo paragonavo al mio solitario cicloviaggiare in Europa, in itinerari diversi, ma uguali nel modo in cui essi disegnano le pieghe del viso. Fu facile iniziare un discorso, più difficile proseguirlo, a causa della mia modesta conoscenza del suo idioma.


Mi sembrò comunque fantastico chiedergli di poter aggiungere, al ritorno in Italia, la sua esperienza nelle mie pagine web. Il viaggio solitario, la filosofia del viaggiare, accomuna John a tanti come voi e me, innamorati del cicloturismo.
Questa è la sua esperienza.

This route will take you through one of the most remote and beautiful parts of Europe, riding past wild Atlantic beaches, through dramatic mountains, and into tiny islands.
