    Day 52, move onto Le Touquet

    September 27, 2019 in France ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    Moving from the free site next to canal, where 6 other campers had joined us and headed off to Le Touquet. Pitched up on a camp site that Paul had booked for us, then Paul & Franscoise came and picked us up and took us for a grand tour of Le Touquet, very nice place, not typical France at all. They took us to their shop where we had an afternoon tea, very nice, then following more site seeing we had dinner with them in an Italian restaurant, then back to the van for coffee and a nice chocolate purchased in the town. Lovely afternoon and evening to draw the adventure to a close.Read more

    Day 51, Heading for Le Touquet

    September 26, 2019 in France ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

    Left Bad Liebenzell this morning and heading for Le Touquet, stopped on free camper stop at Dieu-sur-Meuse, just before Reims. Small village with a canal and when we parked up overlooking the canal there was one van already parked, but as the evening has gone, a further 5 Van's have joined us. Village nothing like yesterday in Germany, hence lack of photos. Onward to Le Touquet in the morning, arranged to meet up with Smokey ( Paul and Fran) in the afternoon and have dinner with them.Read more

    Day 50 Bad Liebenzell, Germany

    September 25, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Second day in Bad Liebenzell in the Black Forest. Hopped on the train headed south to Nagold, had a walk round the village, very pretty and had a currywurst and cake and coffee. Then caught the train heading back and stopped of at Calw, prettier village than Nagold even with a spot of rain.
    Got back to Bad Liebenzell then went out for dinner and went for a swim at the thermal baths, nice and warm.

    Day 48 & 49, Bad Liebenzell, Germany

    September 23, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Following a nice lunch at Bocking near Scheffau, we made our way through Austria and onto Bad Liebenzell in Germany, near Stuttgart. Had a quick wander round the town. The next morning we got up and did a walk through a gorge, nice walk, thought it would be flat as we followed a small river, how wrong can you be. !! Spotted a kingfisher flying around us and managed to get a photo of him. 10.6 miles later we were back at the van for a cup of tea and rest.
    Think we are going to the thermal baths later this evening.

    Travelled up and over the Dolomites from Lipica in Slovenia, passing through Italy on the way to Lienz in Austria, lots of hairpin bends both up and down, but some stunning views of the mountains. ( no snow!). Had a look around the town and the went back into town for a nice Austrian meal. Today we set off up the mountain on our bikes to visit a bathing lake. Worth all the pedalling especially having a coffee stop and some apple strudle. Cycled through some lovely villages. 16 miles in all, little ride today !Read more
