Awaycation Summer Sun 2023

If we are still here!

Planning ahead!

Might as well get on with our lives. The economic crises that have hit the UK and Europe, along with the threat from Putin that he will take the nuclear option to get out of the mess in the Ukraine, means that we might not be able to afford any trips in 2023 or even be here to have one!

So where to go?

I like the idea of getting across in the van and then deciding where to go! North or East towards Holland and Germany? Or further north to Denmark? I have always wanted to drive to Norway! Or Sweden?

We have been to Norway on a couple of cruise holidays and I rode across Sweden from Gothenburg to Stockholm back in the late 80's on my way to the FIM Rally in Finland. A summer trip might be a bit too much of mosquito heaven for me!

Or south into Germany and Bavaria..... maybe even Austria?

At a quick glance at booking sites and it looks like Germany is expensive for campsites. They have a national grid of Aires that are either free or low cost. I will investigate more later.

I have been Googling and found a few sites to look at:

Weekend Warriors
Our Tour

The Slaws (mentioned before) that we follow on YouTube did the Romantic Road from Würzburg to Füssen this year and have been posting their trip. Claire and I did a lot of the Road in the 207CC back in 2011 and I did a chunk of it from Füssen to Rothenburg ob der Tauber this May.

Bavaria does look full of nice little towns that didn't suffer during WW2! So maybe I'll look at that as a destination.

As long as we can get fuel and haven't been included in the mutually assured destruction by some maniac, then we can travel and enjoy life!!!!
