In June 1996, I flew to Munich, Germany and picked up my new R1100RS BMW. I then rode it over the next ten days from Munich to Salzburg and Vienna, Austria down to Ancona, Italy. From there I took a ferry to Patras, Greece and then another from Athens down to Crete. These are some of the pictures from the trip.

In May 2000, I visited a friend in El Puerto de Santa Maria, Spain for a few days.

On 4 May 2000, I went on a one day tour of Gibraltar. It's hard to get an appreciation just from pictures for how large the Rock is and how it dominates the peninsula.
