sapp travels
Our travel blog started in 2013 when we headed to Trento in Italy for the Masters UCI Cycling World Champs, I found it more efficient to keep a blog rather than a private diary plus writing emails to keep loved ones updated, the blog covered both jobs. Chapter 4 of our travels kicks off after I have been back from my 'popping to Paris' adventure for only 2.5 weeks. Our journey is again prompted by a UCI cycling final, this time in Varese Italy. After the final we head to other parts of Italy before road tripping to Spain. To read from the start of the latest journey called Italy and Spain 2018, you can click on the Our Diary tab to see the list of all earlier postings. Or click on Our Blog for the five most recent posts, with the most recent at the top.
