Saturday’s Scooter OOTD

Before our roll-over vehicle accident in May, I picked out a scooter I’ve been yearning for since the day we found out we were moving to Italy. You can imagine Sicilian-Italians motoring around in various mopeds, zipping through busy narrow streets, congested traffic inter-ways and winding along country roads. In my case, I’ve got country roads with fantastic sea views. Yay! Today was a great day for a scooter lesson and some riding along streets of our neighbourhood mountain top. This was only the 2nd time I was able to enjoy a lesson since  breaking my neck. I was really freaked out but was sure to take it real easy and of course I couldn’t help to break for a casual photo-op. Oh! Notice the Matty’s Curtis booties? Aren’t they perfect for scooter riding? Hmm.. maybe one day I’ll need to get a motorcycle? Umm..No!

The view behind me is our local village of Brucoli. We live just below the trees and down the mountain you see pictured behind me.

      Thank you very much! The photographer did a great job! I just posed okay enough. 😉

    • Jeni Johnson says:

      The Peugeot cars are very popular here as well! Italy does border France, makes sense to me! 🙂

    I’ve always wanted to go on a scooter ride! Looked like you had a lot of fun. BEAUTIFUL sky btw 🙂

    • Jeni Johnson says:

      Thank you! 🙂 That same evening I spotted a red Vespa, ohhhhh no regrets, but I regret! 😉

    I have really, really been wanting a scooter for Chicago but have been kind of scared about riding in traffic, however, I think you have tipped me over the age. If someone recovering from a traffic-accident-caused broken neck can do it, so can I!

    • Jeni Johnson says:

      Yes! Th opularity of scooters here make it easier for me to feel comfortable riding it. However back in the States, I would never have considered it in such a rural area. I do plan on bringingit back to the states but highly doubt I’d ride it. It’s just a different lifestyle here.

      This is the second comment about Juventus, we had no clue it had to do with soccer. My Hubby picked it out for me while I was down and out in a neck brace. I know he is clueless about it also. UH Oh, its time I google this …

      • Seb says:

        Juventus are traditionally the team that all other Italian soccer fans love to hate – it’s sort of like “If my team can’t win, then I hope anyone but Juventus does!” Of course, Juventus fans are a pretty unique breed themselves 🙂

      • Jeni Johnson says:

        Oh great, So Im wearing a helmut supporting a once cheating team. All the Italians are going to hate me. Time I buy a sticker! UGH! 🙂

    Love it! Especially with the boots. What a stunning backdrop as well!!

    • Jeni Johnson says:

      🙂 Thank you, it was fun, needed a good break from a bit of riding. I’ll prob be keeping it in the garage just a few months more until I really feel safe back on the roads again. Country or not.

    • Jeni Johnson says:

      Ugh just looked it up and Seb gave me the break down. I do’nt want to support a soccer team! I need a huge sticker now! LOL>.

    • Jeni Johnson says:

      I wanted a Vespa but I didn’t want to learn how to drive a Vespa. Just needed brakes and gas to keep it easy. 🙂
