The WIMA rally has come to an end and I’m writing this in a hotel in Bayerish Gemain just across the German border. It rained like hell when I arrived and I opted for no dinner, just drinks and crisps and an evening in bed.
Now I’m going to sum up my experiences from the last days of the rally and I’m starting with the bikes. I love to walk around the campsite and the area around and just look at all the bikes. The WIMA women truly ride a wide diversity of bikes.
One of my favourite activities during the Rally is the treasure hunt. It is such a good way to get around and see things in the area of the rally and if I feel that I’m good at the questions I can even get a bit competitive.
We rendered no prize for our answers but Kaija got the prize for the longest travelled distance on bike.
We took advantage and had a surprise party for Anneli to celebrate her birthday.

The WIMA rally has come to an end, the week passed quickly and too soon we had to part. But I have had so much fun – my greatest thanks to all the hard working Austrian ladies who organised the event and all other WIMAs who came.
This was my 8th WIMA rally and thinking about it the rallies get more and more fun. Through these events I have found friends all over the world and I have travelled to places I might never have seen otherwise. In the future we have rallies in Switzerland, Poland, Australia, Sweden, Korea, Estonia and more to look forward to. Time to start saving. Travelling is addictive, motorcycling even more so.
And last, something to think about: Why leave the dog behind when the family goes on vacation?!?
