I cannot believe it: 10,000 views. Wow. Thank you everyone who has joined me on this journey.

I am now fairly settled in the States and have enjoyed the details of life here this past week.

Every time I see two wheels pass me by, as I now ride on four, I do feel a tinge of sadness for the Vespa I left behind in Israel. I wonder what adventures I would get myself into if I had one here at my disposal. Now that would be rather amazing. I think New Orleans would be the city I’d most yearn to rediscover via Vespa, but I am not sure I could handle that much awesome. Ha. Luckily, I have now made sure this stop (to New Orleans) is one we’ll make on this trip. This fact makes me very happy. If you guys can ever make it to that city, do and enjoy the strange and local flair.  (more…)

Well howdy there! WordPress informs me that this shall be RoxyVespa’s 100th post since starting up in mid-February! Coooool. 

I’ve looked over at the stats for this blog and realize that Roxy Vespa really is the little vespa that could. And did! I appreciate all of you greatly and have loved building a community here with each of you. I hope to continue that friendship for some time to come and look forward to many more adventures with you all.  (more…)

Reader’s Photos: Italia Vespa Culture

I appreciate all of the blog readers and those that follow the blog here at RoxyVespa. I recently had one of those fabulous readers,
Axel Pliopas, who kind enough to send me a few photos he took in Italy depicting the local Vespa Culture and thought I would share them with you all,

 This photo above was taken a couple of weeks ago when the weather throughout Europe left everything in a lovely, white mess. This was taken in Roma.

This, Alex told me, was taken in Northern Italia at one of the Carnival Festivals. Isn’t it the best? I love Italians.

Of course, a huge shout out to the photographer,  Axel Pliopas.  His blog is over here if you want to check it out, http://placespeoplestories.wordpress.com/. Thank you for generally being awesome.

If you have any photos or come across any interesting Vespa-type culture in your own adventures out there and want to send them my way, I would love to see them! Just get in touch with me via email, Izevel1923@gmail.com and I’ll send a shout out to you here with your photo. Thanks everyone! Hope your week starts out well!

I just wanted to write a little note to those of you who have followed this blog or stop by every now and then,

Thank you for reading!!

And to spread the love, I found another blog that recently started up this month that is all about the safe scooting. The writer has tons of motorcycle and scooter experience (33 year riding and 20 years in motorcycle training), so his articles [so far] have been packed with great safety information. One of his post focuses on the psychology of visibility(the X-Motion and Z-Motion). He explains why people are always pulling out in front of you and how to change your riding habits so you are more likely to be seen. The information he provides is invaluable, if you want to drive safely. And you do!

So check out his blog,
