    Westerstede Boulodrome

    September 30 in Germany

    We are resting beneath tall oak trees, the wind blowing cold droplets of water from their wet leaves onto Martha's roof along with the occasional acorn. The grey gravel pitch of Westerstede Boulodrome sits behind us, abandoned in this inclement weather.

    It feels like we've been on the road for a long time today and in a way we are grateful for the foul weather as an excuse to stay inside. We began by driving a short way to the river Elbe, a little distance inland from its Wadden Sea estuary. We'd made the decision to avoid industrial Hamburg whose motorways are so often clogged with traffic. Instead we charted a route further to the west that crossed over the River Elbe via the Glückstädt-Wischhafen ferry.

    As is often the way, we arrived at the tiny port with a queue of vehicles behind us. An open topped boat was at the station and those ahead of us had boarded. We stopped at a red light while a few smaller cars and motorbike were signalled to overtake us and join this crossing. We didn't mind waiting as it gave us an opportunity to look round and Poppy the chance for a wee. We could see another ferry hovering in the channel and it powered into dock as soon as the former had departed. The F/S Ernst Sturm's deck was was also fully loaded and in a speedy turnaround we were directed on board with about 50 other vehicles before the engines fired up and powered us out accross the river. Vicky climbed to the middle platform running alongside one edge of the ferry, while Will waited for the ticket master to visit the van before joining her. Unlike the Danish ferry we took recently, where we were expected to pay by card, these tickets could only be purchased by cash, neither were we allow up to the bridge where the captain's cabin was. It did however sell icecreams and würst so Will indulged in the latter to fortify him for the drive ahead. It was a fun ride and for €17.50, feeling the wind in our hair as we sailed across the water was so much better than being stuck in Hamburg's notorious traffic jams.

    After disembarking we drove past several kilometres of queued traffic waiting to board, including many motorhomes. It seemed quite a lot of others had the same idea as us! The area is rural so the rest of the drive took us past farmer's fields along tree lined roads. Our stop at Westerstede wasn't far away from the border with the Netherlands so we felt we'd made good progress today.

    Ankunft in Dresden

    June 28 in Germany

    Auf geht’s nach Dresden!
    Mit dem IC (Huch es gibt keinen Bistrowagen!) Dafür aber eine total nette Bedienung, die uns perfekt versorgt! Einmal noch in Leipzig über den Bahnsteig in den nächsten Zug, und eine Stunde Später sind wir in Dresden! Wo wir gleich ins Schwerelosrestaurant übersiedeln. Sehen sollte man die Aktion mal, aber bitte nur mit einer Pommes. Danach geht es zu Fuß zum Motel O’Neill wo auch schon die Tickets für den Aufstieg zur Frauenkirche für uns an der Rezeption bereit liegen. Nach dem kurzen Check in gehts los in die Altstadt.Read more

    Sportlicher Vormittag

    August 2 in Germany

    Nach einer ruhigen Nacht folgen wir am Morgen unseren Nasen zum benachbarten Bäcker. Nach warmem Brötchen schielten wir kurz zum See. Dieser gefiel uns so gut, dass wir kurzerhand uns entschließen doch etwas länger an diesem Ort zu weilen und diesen umrunden. Olli zu Fuß. Die Mädels aufm Rad. Abschließend gibt's noch ein paar extra Akrobatikeinheiten für Alma und Olli.
