Well it's a new year and possibly I should learn about blogging, so here goes.
We are Martin and Jen we have a Niesmann and Bischoff Flair 8000i (hence the Funflair) View attachment 51396
This is us, yes we can "ride tandem" and it is our usual mode of transport for shopping and sight seeing once we are parked up.
Heading through France to Spain in February so will update this (if my first attempt is successful)
HEADING FOR THE CZECH REPUBLIC AUGUST 2015
Well as you can see most of the year has passed Spain came and went and no more entries from me so obviously not enough dedication.
So it's August and we don't normally go abroad in August too hot, too busy, too expensive and too much going on in the garden BUT we wanted to go to the international tandem rally at Frymburk in the South of the Czech Republic so off we go.
We got the ferry Hull Zeebrugge and straight across into Germany spending the first night on the Rhine at Konigswinter, nothing special but free Stellplatz so can't complain, and a local had parked up an old Cou liner.
We then decided as we could not visit Dusseldorf caravan salon we would park at the Concorde factory Stellplatz at Aschbach/Schlusselfeld, big spaces of course and surrounded by all manner of Concorde, overnight/early morning everybody gets bread rolls left on their step courtesy of Concorde, very nice. Phoenix motorhomes are literally next door and Morelo are about 5 miles down the road.
On the left is a Concorde Cruiser with a Tesla electric car on a Trailer.
Our timing for this was impeccable as Phoenix were closed for annual summer holidays, Concorde were closed for holidays and the showroom was closed for two days for dealer orientation prior to Dusseldorf show, Morelo were also closed but the sales manager was around and was very hospitable showing us into one of their LOFT models.
Just before we left the Concorde Stellplatz the Phoenix factory started to line up all the models that they were taking to Dusseldorf, I don't know if it traditional to wind up the competition like that.
New Phoenix ready for Dusseldorf parked at Concorde Stellplatz.
We decided to head for Passau to get into the South of the Czech Republic via a little bit of Austria, but not enough to need a "Go Box".
Passau is a lovely town and you could certainly spend some time there, the Cathedral of St Stephen is well worth a visit and has the largest organ in Europe which you can pay to listen to twice a day.
There are three Stellplatz to choose from the largest takes 50 motorhomes or more is free and about 2km walk to town but no services at all, the other two are closer, you pay but they do have services the one by the coach park is not very nice, by far the nicest is the Ilzbrucke one which is very close to the main town as well, driving through Passau and to any of these parking places is a doddle. I use Campercontact app most of the time for the Aires and Stellplatz.
This is the largest Stellplatz

Passau is on the confluence of three rivers the Danube the Inn and the much smaller Ilz, you can walk through the old town to the joining point of the Danube and the Inn but if you climb the steps to the castle you can get a good view of the waters joining as they each run a different colour.
