Quiet week once again

It’s been a bit of a quiet week this week once again, but thankfully Anthony had to head down to Murwillumbah for work on Thursday morning, so we got to go for a ride.   The only downside to the trip was the rain, and it was the first long ride in the wet that we’ve had, but it was no real drama.  One of Anthony’s co-workers made a comment about him “braving the wet weather on the scooter”…to which Anthony responded, “it’s not an issue, you just put on the wet weather gear and go….”

His co-worker doesn’t get it……

But it was a good trip and on the way back we took a detour up Cudgen Road and headed into Kingscliff the back way…..the road was dry and once again we had a chance to drive around some nice corners that we love to travel on.

Here’s where the best part of the road is located….it’s a bit hard to tell how good it is from the photo, it’s one of those pieces of road that you have to travel on to appreciate it.  It’s only a short piece, but worth it.

This weekend we’ll be out again, Scooter Girl is here and I’m sure that my two passengers will take any chance they can get to go out on the road for a ride.

Here’s me at one of their favourite spots….

And so that brings us to this week’s winner of Derbi’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger of the Week…..She was born in Umbria, Italy and is an actress and fashion model.

The daughter of a trucking company owner, she started modelling at 16 and also once started to go to law school.  She speaks fluent Italian, French and English, semi-fluent Spanish and Aramaic.

Her acting career began in the early 90’s with an appearance as one of Dracula’s brides in Bram Stoker’s Dracula.  She is best known for her role as Persephone in The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions.

Her exact date of birth is uncertain and different sources give different dates – the most common years given are 1964 and 1968.  But that doesn’t really matter, no matter when she was born, she’s still worthy of being this weeks winner, she is the one and only Monica Bellucci.
