    Auf Wiedersehen Deutschland! Where next?

    October 16, 2016 in Germany

    Today is the end of our 3 month tour of Germany.

    We have enjoyed ourselves immensely and were beginning to feel at home in the country.

    Perhaps Germany isn't the first place to spring to mind when you plan a European tour but we feel it has been the best country to start off in. There are over 6000 stopovers, many of them free and we haven't had to worry about access to water or emptying facilities. There is frequently parking provision specifically for motorhomes in car parks and there are plenty of places to stay outside of official sites. Will knows enough German to get by well and this has made things a whole lot easier. The roads are great (apart from the relatively frequent 'umleitungs' diverting you around road repair work!) Provision for bicycles is second to none and we've loved being able to access city centres along well maintained riverside cycle tracks.

    The only major stumbling block has been internet access. Few places offer free wifi and the Three data Sim doesn't function in Germany. To get a local Sim you need to register it with your passport and German address. We've tried a few and perhaps it is down to our inexperience but topping up has been difficult and so we've made do with roaming a few days a week on Vicky's phone which doesn't always have enough signal.

    Germany is a huge country and so has a wealth of experiences to offer. We've done a lot of kilometers but we've by no means exhausted the opportunities for exploration. From the islands, white sands and lakes of the North East, to the wine making corridors, romantic road and chocolate box towns of the midlands, down to the exhilarating Alpine experiences and tree clad hillsides of the south. Not to mention the stunning city sights, brilliant beer and interesting culture.

    Vicky's favorite places have been Rügen Island and the Black Forest while Will's highlight has been Oktoberfest in Münich.

    We feel we've been spoiled in Germany because it has been so easy to live in the van here. We've got adventures aplenty to look forward to but the coming winter and countries with less provision for vans are likely to lead to a more difficult everyday existence than we have had here.

    In the coming 12 months we plan to visit the following:

    October:
    Liechtenstein (1 night), Austria (about 10 nights), Italy and Slovenia (passing through)

    November:
    Croatia (4-5weeks)

    December:
    Austria

    January - April:
    Italy

    May:
    Slovenia

    June-July:
    Sweden (passing through Austria, Germany, Denmark)

    July - August:
    Norway (passing into the top of Finland)

    September - October:
    Netherlands (5 weeks)

    October:
    Luxembourg (2 weeks)

    October - November:
    Belgium (5 weeks)

    December:
    UK!

    Lindenberg in Allgau

    October 15, 2016 in Germany

    Journeying south towards Austria, we passed Bodensee, the biggest lake in Germany. It's so big that some of it reaches in to Switzerland and Austria. We stopped for lunch overlooking Bodensee and could see the faint outlines of the Swiss Alps on the opposite shore.

    Our final stopover in Germany was Lindenberg in Allgau, a car park reached by climbing up 7 hairpin bends in succession. The official stopover was closed for maintenance but the height barrier to the gravel and grass car park beside it had been opened.

    It was quiet, the main source of noise being the church bells from the nearby village. Will started to make a wooden lid for his beer mug using a branch of wood. Poppy seemed interested in the sanding down process, it was only later we discovered that it was the sandpaper itself she was keen on. We returned to the van to find half the sheet torn to pieces and the rest nowhere to be seen!

    We were encouraged by fellow motorhomers to take a walk around the small lake at the end of the road and are so glad we did. The sun was out and the sky was intense blue above the mix of autumnal deciduous and evergreen trees, their reflections bouncing back from the surface of the still and peaty lake.

    Skywalk

    July 26 in Germany

    Auf dem Heimweg haben wir uns doch für den kleinen Umweg entschieden und haben etwas für Leute mit Höhenangst getan. Wir waren im SkyWalk Allgäu (Preis-Leistung kann man nicht meckern). Bei ca 30 m Höhenanstieg mit Treppen zum durchschauen war mein Puls schon mal kurzzeitig bei 150 ^^ Es ist immer noch bullig heiß aber der Ausblick hat schon etwas entschädigt. Jetzt werden wir uns wieder auf den Heimweg machen und sind traurig, dass die Zeit wie im Flug verging.Read more
