I absolutely loved #vanlife at the #algarve in #portugal and I am so #grateful to my great #friend Heinz for allowing me to stay there and #live and #relax for a while. I am now thinking of a plan to get my #Bajaj back from #Moscow and my #Ap50 home from #Faro . Stay tuned – that could be the next small or medium #adventure #ride :-)! #piaggioape #ape #mercedes #vespa #adv #roadtrip #travel #markusmayer #lavidavespa ! (hier: Cidade Olhão Portugal.)

Sometimes I wish I could turn back time! 1 year ago I finished my 80 days around the world on #vespa ! Afterwards I was living a few months in #faro #portugal ! I was happy ! It was peaceful ! I was resting and enjoyed #vanlife!
Then I started making some big #mistakes and spent time with people that hurt me a lot ! My #choices and my #responsibility, but still I sometimes wish I could just go back to BEFORE all of those mistakes and stay away from #toxic persons.
Now all that is left is to pick up my #Ape50 from Olhao and bring it home as a little #adventure to forget the #pain and the #scars of the past ! And the rest ? Well #Karma will take care 😂! (hier: Moncarapacho, Faro, Portugal)

#zaragoza #spain during 130 days around #europe on my #vespa ! The same night I lost my wallet in the #desert in #losmonegros and was without money, documents, my ID or credit cards stranded in the middle of nowhere 😂! #adventure #stories #vespatravel (hier: Zaragoza, Spain)

Just Markus .

I am only a normal, mid age healthy man that took his #Vespa in 80 days around the planet. Alone – no #film crew , no #Mechanics, no photographer, Presentation #Tour Organizer or logistical help.
Nowadays that is unusual in a time where everything seems to be done for and with the #media . #Books and films produced and some even do their trips just for #fame and money.
I am working on a book – but mostly to relive and process it for myself. And I take my time for it . ( some complain 😂) Back in the days it was enough to take a moped to Morocco to be famous and special . One of the biggest #Adventure Travel Specialists in Germany started like that. Nowadays you would need to be a 60+ Transgender with Down Syndrom and put your Vespa on Fire to do a naked #Backflip over the Grand Canyon on it to be recognized 😂. Of course filmed by #CNN and #BBC and Sponsored by #RedBull.
Back in the early years of adventure #travel big companies like the #Hilton offered beds to Vespa travelers for free and flight companies and the military and politicians would help them as well. #Documentaries were produced about them and they were used for Propaganda . Times change 😉. I am very grateful for 23.800 likes today ! Thanks that you share a few of my pics and anecdotes with me. Remember that mostly we travel for ourselves and of course I could have done it in silence and without any documentation, but it is more beautiful to be able to share your #story and even inspire some people.
You guys are amazing . ❤️
Thank you !
