Vespa Gentleman Giro - Vespa is coming home!

Markus has now arrived in Italy with his Vespa via Switzerland and Austria

We don't yet know exactly how he spent yesterday evening and night. I am convinced: the European Football Championship final was definitely a great time for a stage stay in Italy on his Vespa Gentleman Giro!

In any case, one can see from his descriptions: he is so far very happy and grateful for the many nice people he meets and donations he can collect. Of course he enjoys his Vespa and the reliable engine. My greatest respect: almost 1.000 km in 9 days fully packed on an old Vespa with 50 cubic meters ...

After a great night in Vespengeschwaders Vesbar until 4 a.m. and a 700 € donation for the Austrian Children's Cancer Foundation, I drove with my cat over the Arlberg Pass to Imst, where I met the Vespanest and old-timer friends MSC Imst over a nice coffee break, who donated another 430 € .
