It's a cracking area of Germany, I've been there four times now but I think this trip will be far more in depth rather than just passing through on the way to the Stella Alpina rally.
My favourite place is Koblenz, where I often meet folk for a beer. Here's a cracking pic at dusk with the moon coming over the horizon. The fortified building on the hilltop is gorgeous, I was once told by someone it was used by the Gestapo during WW2, I looked into this,,,,,, no it wasn't, it was a library!
I'm looking forward to this trip already! :thumbup:
I need to get dates sorted out for this as we need to get holidays booked very soon.
Boris, I'm still keen on travelling by DFDS mate, be good to travel with yourselves. Any hard plans yet? I originally planned going down to Vaders and heading over with them but the boat trip sounds good, I HATED travelling to the chunnel last summer.
Steve T's also been asking about the VIM in Austria which I'm also keen on but I've only so much holidays to book! So I'd like to sort this out one way or tother asap.
Not much been said on this trip lately, hope there's still plenty of interest?
Can you reconfirm the dates you and the southern contingent will be in Germany. To avoid the weekends I'm probably going to add a day or so on each side to get the cheaper fares. Once I book them I won't be able to change so want to get it right.
Any idea of campsites yet?
Now it's 2010 and this years holiday it's full steam ahead.
We will leave here on theSunday 20th of june early and will get to the campsite late afternoon.Which one i can not tell you as non of them took bookings that early.As soon as i know which one i will post up here
