I would like to thank everyone in the forum for their valuable contributions that it also part of the awesomeness the V! special thanks to Weljo for his quality advice!
the itinerary will start in rabat (morocco) up to tangier, then taking a ferry to spain to start the journey (jibraltar, malaga, sierra nevada, cabo de gata, valencia, barcelona, pyrenee) then France (perpignan, saint tropez, cannes, nice, monte carlo), then all the costal road to italy (genoa, pisa, florence, tuecan, bologne, venice, dolmites) then all the way to austria (vienne) then all the way to germany (munich ) then switzerland (alls, interlaken, laudanne, geneva) then up to luxembourg, holland, belgium then back to France on the western sid (bretagne area) then all the way down to portugal to end up in tarifa for a cross back to Morocco.
I'm starting the journey alone but I guess I will be meeting riders on the way.
I'm excited but also a bit nervous because now I'm packing everything and want to ensure that nothing is missing...
I will take a picture of my V tomorrow and share it and will keep this forum updated with photos of the journey
I feel it like the moment of life, far from commitments, office, bills, traffic etc and I really look forward enjoying every single minute of it
