Motorcycle, sun and more
Motorrad-und-Urlaub.at has come up with motorcycle trips with overnight stays on a cruise ship
"The World is a Book. Those who never travel only see one side of it,” Aurelius Augustinus – and what vehicle is better suited for traveling than a motorcycle ? Everyday worries turn to dust as soon as the starter is activated, the black asphalt strip shows the way, immediate sensation with all senses allows driver and machine to become one. Off into the unknown – at home everywhere and on the move everywhere. If only it weren't for the luggage: day after day it's time to pack up, saddle up, unsaddle, check in, unpack - and every night your tired head is put on a different pillow.
A good idea from Patrick Unterhuber, passionate motorcyclist and ambitious motorcycle tour operator from Lannach, Austria, promises to help. What would it be like, Patrick asked himself, to stay in a comfortable hotel, explore Croatia's fascinating coastal and breathtaking mountain roads on your own bike, always arrive somewhere different in the evening and yet always stay overnight in the same hotel? It does not work? It's okay, because the hotel floats - after all, it's a small cruise ship.
The starting point is the traditional seaside resort of Opatija on the Kvarner Bay. The “motorcycle and holiday” ship is already at anchor here. The spacious cabins with their own bathroom and toilet are moved into and you're ready to go. Dream roads along the glittering azure Adriatic and countless serpentines that lead to lonely plateaus await the bikers - fantastic views are guaranteed. Every evening the machines roll out to another quay, where the spacious yacht and its crew are already waiting for them. While the engines tick away and cool down, the travelers enjoy a cool drink on deck before the Mediterranean dinner is served.
You dine with a view of the calm sea, small harbors and picturesque villages, and morning after morning, enjoyable cruising is on the daily agenda. In the Croatian radius, running boards sometimes spark and the biker's heart somersaults. Patrick's itinerary includes a lot of pure Croatia: Cres, Krk and Rab are included as well as Zadar and numerous insider tips. True to the motto “the world belongs to those who enjoy it,” we take breaks in cozy restaurants and small cafés.
This very special motorcycle experience will take place from September 20th to 27th in 2014. The daily stages range from 110 to 240 kilometers, and the group covers around 1,100 kilometers in total. And because every trip, no matter how breathtaking, begins with a single step, Patrick makes this particularly easy: simply motorrad-und-urlaub.at , find out more and book, that's all you need for the ultimate Croatia motorcycle trip. You just have to hurry, because the number of participants is limited.
