Mike and Kim Botan have made a habit of traveling the world on adventure motorcycles. From the wilds of Alaska and the Canadian Yukon, to the Tip of South America, around and through Iceland and navigating wilderness of Labrador, they’ve wandered along gravel and paved roads taking in all that they see, making it their mission to learn about the people of the world.
On their latest adventure, they each rent motorcycles in Spain to discover Europe for themselves. With no planned itinerary, they ride through Spain, Andorra, France, Switzerland and Italy. Riding narrow single lane roads through mountain passes and alongside rushing rivers, they visit tiny towns, meet the locals and take in some of the world’s most spectacular scenery. Along the way, they learn about the people of Europe and more than a little about themselves.
“Mr. Cotton Wanders Europe. Where To Next?” chronicles their latest ride through Europe with no set itinerary. The book offers the reader the ability to take the handlebars, push the starter button, shift into first gear and seize the opportunity to wander with them. By the time you have finished this journey, you will understand why the saying “Not all those who wander are lost” is true.
Both Mike and Kim have full time jobs in the corporate world, but when not traveling they enjoy speaking to others about their travels and what they have seen and learned. They encourage everyone with the desire to travel to embrace the concept of traveling on two wheels, in an atmosphere free to feel the environment and meet new people.
