    Our first task in this city was to get a vehicle pass to enable us to visit any of the 43 cities in Germany classed as low emission zones (Trier not being one of them). Perseverance was the name of the game as we'd previously made several unsuccessful attempts and the Fiat garage we'd specifically travelled to didn't do them either. When we eventually found a garage that was able to provide one, it was a simple case of passing over the van's papers to be checked and paying €5 for the disk. The negotiations along the way did test Will's linguistic skills but we'd recommend trying to find somewhere that displays a 'DEKRA' sign (the German equivalent of the MOT).

    We pulled into the 120 place stopover just over the river from the city centre and were issued with a credit card when we opened the entry barrier. This would log how long we stayed and what facilities we used, ready for us to pay off at the machine upon leaving.

    Using the excellent cycle track along the river and over the bridge into the city we set off to explore the Karl Marx house and a Roman ampitheatre big enough to accommodate 20,000 spectators.

    Trier is bursting with historical sights such as the bright pink Rokoko Palais built for King Constantine but it has a vibrant atmosphere with many students and tourists adding to the mix. We especially liked the 'hippy' and knitting shops!

    Onze eerste overnachting met de motorhome op Reisemobilpark Treviris. Arco is er bij. Hij heeft gebeefd als een blad vanwege het geratel (van alles dat niet vast stond in de kast). Eerste rit was wat stresserend, maar rijden met de Ducato valt best wel mee. Mieke heeft kriebels in de buik :-). Ik ook, maar andere :-)
    Op de staanplaats geen elektriciteit wegens te korte verlengdraad. Slecht geslapen omdat ik geen niveaublokken heb gebruikt, en de frigo op gas werkte. 'S andeendaags Trier bezocht. Porta Negra, Dom...
