British Moto GP 2013 Silverstone

British Moto GP 2013 Silverstone

When we were in Turkey, we were riding in every possible occasion but since we came to London we are away from our bikes and our riding joy and we miss to be on the way again. Normally we are not very big fans of racing bikes or watching the races from tv but we definitely enjoy to watch the Moto GP on the track.

Last four days we were in Silverstone for British Grand Prix 2013 and we came back home with lots of beautiful photos and big smiles in our faces. We watched with big pleasure big boys leaning in the curves just in front of us, heard the amazing voice of the engines during three days.

Three Spanish riders Jorge Lorenzo, Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa crossed the checkered flag first, second and third but we supported as always our number 46, Valentino “The Doctor” Rossi. Our Italian boy finished fourth the race but still number one in our hearths.

Yesterday evening we were in O2 Arena for Arenacross London to watch the amazing show of motocross riders. We are motorcyle lovers, we love the idea of preparing two small bags and going for a ride (preferably to a small Greek island) but we are not big fans of watching motorcycle races on telly.

We love touring motorcycles, not the racer or motocross ones but on the other hand, we love watching live Moto GP races and we find really impressive watching so closely their actions at the curves. But we never watched an indoor motocross race until yesterday. Because of being an indoor track the atmosphere was little bit smoky and watching racers jumping and flying with their motorcycles all around (and meanwhile drinking few pints) was amazing.

In one part of the show, the little ones took place. Specially 7-10 and 10-12 years old racers were as breathtaking as the professionals and they earned all spectators respect with their talent and perseverance.

Now, while we are drinking our teas at home, still coming little bit smoke from our lungs but it worth to be there and being part of that ambiance.

Serpentine Peter Pan Cup01 2012

Serpentine Peter Pan Cup03 2012

Since two years we are going to watch the Peter Pan Cup swimming race on Christmas Day morning at Serpentine in Hyde Park. It’s nice to walk early morning in empty London streets and then to watch Serpentine Swimming Club’s yearly tradition.

Waking up at five o’clock to be there on time (because on Christmas day there isn’t any public transportation and there are only few black cubs on duty) and getting out in a dark and cold winter  morning, is not looking so sympathic maybe but enjoying the emptiness and the silence of the streets, having fresh winter morning air in Hyde Park, receiving candies as Christmas Day treats from Santa who is waiting us in Serpentine, listening the bagpipe which is announcing the beginning of the race, watching the bravehearts jumping in the ice cold brown waters of Serpentine, is quite a good experience for two foreigners who live in London.

This year, the race was as successful as last year’s. But this year, when the swimmers were out of the water and running to the mulled wine for heating their purple bodies, we were as wet as they were because of the rain which is quite surprising thing in our little kingdom.
