Großolbersdorf laybyAugust 26, 2016 in Germany
After leaving the campsite in Prague we braved the Czech roads and headed north. There was a tunnel where the inside lane was suddenly closed off by a sloping barrier, roadworks with unsigned narrowing of the already narrow lane caused by barriers projecting into the road and no rest places to stop and change driver. When the roads improved and we started to see windmills and advertisements for parking we knew we were approaching Germany!
We found a layby shortly after crossing the German border. It was a bit noisy with the road and lorry engines but we were glad of the familiarity. There was a scenic country view over a straw field on one side and a corn field with long distance sights and sunset the other. Vicky picked a fresh bunch of wildflowers for the table as Will cooked tea. The layby had small shelters with benches and signposts to nearby villages that could be reached by walking through the fields, but after all the exploring we'd done in the last week we were happy just to relax inside the van.Read more
