    Goodness gracious... great balls of cheese. They have even multiplied to the upper level of the shop!

  • Day2

    Amsterdam

    April 11, 2018 in the Netherlands ⋅ ⛅ 54 °F

    unfortunately Ann Frank museum not accessible today, but the city is beautiful in the April sun.Look carefully at the first picture ..that is about a million bikes in the park above the boat. The wee red car is brilliant, saw a few around the city, some were chained to railings like bikes (in case you put it in your pocket and walked off with it.)Read more

    Solingen

    April 12, 2018 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 64 °F

    An historic market town, but more importantly a haven. German roads ain't what they used to be more dug up than down. Got within an hour of my destination and had to rest..it is 19 degrees after all. Spent an hour chatting on line with a chap who is unable to get my Nokia 3 to work, so looks like it is going to be the good old fashioned way of map reading, wrong roads and lots of U turns...joyRead more

    Wuppertal near Dusseldorf

    April 13, 2018 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 55 °F

    Was just watching a programme about the schwebebahn on TV a few days ago and here I am in the city that has had one running since 1901! Now where did my pet slug get to..oh there it is, yum! Mind you, it pays to be careful about a moustache in this country

    Markheidenfield

    April 14, 2018 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 68 °F

    Classic Bavarian town, without the lederhosen, damn I feel such a fool bringing mine now. Fabulous stop by the river, view on the opposite side not so nice, although there is an Aldi and Lidl side by side 50m away, not so good when planning a BBQ and all is closed on a Sunday (very religious in this area) Talking of which I clocked a camper van covered in religious artefacts during a cycle round town, thought it was an exhibit until the owner came down next to me on the riverbank and shouted at the river for half an hour!Read more

    Moosbach

    April 16, 2018 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 54 °F

    Last stop in Germany before heading to Czech Republic.
    Sorry to leave this peaceful trusting little town, no one around when I arrived, just a form to fill in and hand in at the tourist info in the morning which I found with the help of some locals. The site had water electricity and toilets which was handy after 7 days using everything in my wee van.Read more

  • Day8

    Prague, Czech Republicpp

    April 17, 2018 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 64 °F

    Just arrived, 25 degrees and not a cloud in....oh just spotted one.The entrance to the famous bridge of saints, will attach a couple of pics of the bridge on next entry. The famous square minus the clock which is being restored and me on the highest point at lookout tower obviously designed with Eiffel in mind, that's not the only way to get high around here as you'll see from the "sweets" on display.Read more

    Prague (final day)

    April 20, 2018 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 63 °F

    Stayed longer than expected but the food people entertainment and weather has been amazing, 27degrees today out cycling a bit too long now a bit too red! The river has a man made Weir so that kayakers can get some practice on the rapids, funny to see them with all their gear on in this weather, come and have a go on the Tummel in October if you think you're hard enough! Couple of pics of Prague by night including the tower I was up the other day, couple of the zoo, one of the best I've been to.I have never understood why bars give you a large glass then only fill it 2 thirds, try that in Scotland and see how far you get! The final pic is my picnic table masquerading as a clothes horse.Read more

  • Day14

    Ostrovacice

    April 23, 2018 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 70 °F

    Struggled to find any camps at Brno but followed a fellow traveller's advice and arrived at this wee place, which has two sites! I have to share the female shower as male is being renovated (for which I get a 20 pc discount, I thought that would be extra!) As with many small towns I am the only person staying and enjoy a couple of relaxing days in the 26 degree sun, apparently this weather is not usual for Spring, it should be 12 to15 at most.Not much to see here so I have added a couple of pics from Kutna Hora, I forget the name of the Church( the towns are all worth about 200 on the Scrabble board) The Roman Catholic church is decorated with the bones of 60,000 dead, half of which are from the time of the great plague.Read more
