Well what an experience that was
6 1/2 drive to Dover for the ferry. Arrived early so tried to get an earlier boat but was told to pay an extra £60.00. About turn & out for a couple of hours rest before returning to get the 6.30am ferry to Calais.
From Calais we travelled through Belgium (Never again as their roads & motorways are the worst I've ever experienced, not good for the Motorhome or the passengers ) and onto Luxembourg. Surprisingly my SATNAV didn't think Luxembourg existed so it was onto my mobile and google nav to get us to out first destination another 6 hour drive .
Camping Krounebierg was a nice site with Restaurant, indoor leisure facilities & nice views over the surrounding countryside. The pitch we were allocated was tiny for our 8.5m Motorohome and I just about squeezed in. Couldn't be bothered complaining as we were only there for 1 night. After the usual few beers & something to eat we all had a pleasant nights sleep .
Diesel on 1.02 euros a litre
Onwards to Tettnang in southern Germany, another 7 hour journey . Raining nearly all the way, thinking why had we bothered to go from one rainy country to another .
Our destination was Gutshof Badhütten, a very nice site with large pitches, all flat and a superb Pizzeria & lovely pool. We were here for 2 nights, first night was rainy, god how I hate that bloody noise on the roof .
Sunny in the morning and off on our bikes we went . What superb countryside and how friendly the Germans are. Very polite & very helpful when we got lost numerous times through the woods. Tettnang is a superb small town with great restaurants, shops & atmosphere. Highly recommended.
Later back at the site we got our table & chairs out and cooked up a super dinner under the stars . A quieter nights sleep was had by all.
I'll continue with day 4 tomorrow. Thanks for reading.
