    Here we go again
    Planning to go to Bamberg area in Germany end of June beginning of July. Definitely dates will be posted up as soon as I have worked out when Jim and Fi on a arrive at our little house in the south :D
    Looks like that Fiona and Deb are flying over to Nürnberg where Jim and i pick them up from the airport.
    Planning to stay on one campsite and doing just day trips. Bamberg and Nürnberg (uncle Adolph favourite place,lots to see) are each worth a daytrip. Frankonian switzerland is one of the nicer scenic sides of Germany with loads of brilliant roads and little traffic. Food and drink are cheap and good.

    I post up some links as soon as I get home. We planning to stay about 8-10 days,depending on how the travel arrangements from up north work out.
    So if you fancy a little ride to a place where you can get 1l of beer for 3.70euro :thumbsupanim:


    A few links to start with

    Bamberg

    http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bamberg

    Nürnberg

    http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/N%C3%BCrnberg

    As I said I will add some more info and more importantly proper dates as soon as I get home



    UPDATE 14/01/2015

    Looks like we will be leaving the UK Monday the 22nd of June and be back around the 3rd of July . That leaves time for the Scottish contingent to come down and make their way home again



    UPDATE 15/03/2015

    Okay,a little update on this
    Dates are now confirmed

    We will be leaving the UK Monday the 22nd of June and be back around the 3rd of July


    As i said before we are leaving on the monday,checked prices earlier today and it was £66 return. I am looking at leaving between 6-7am train. We have deided not to do it in one hit so we shall be stopping over on the way. I thought maybe on the Mosel? Berncastel-Kues? Not sure,if anyone knows of a decent camp spot about 250-300 miles from Calais direction Frankfurt,give us a shout please. :thumbsup:

    Planning to stay here for the whole time and do day trips into the surounding area

    I find it unbelievable that a return flight(£55) to Nurnberg is cheaper than a tunnel crossing by train(£66) :rolleyes2:

    I / we could be up for that with a similar travel arrangement but a bit early to commit yet.

    Have you looked at renting a house over there as we did in France? Makes travelling light much easier and gives us somewhere to hang out and dry gear if the weather not great

    Nope not looking for a house as you would need deposits and arranging things very early.To much hassle with not knowing final numbers and all. I prefer a campsite where we can have a fire/BBQ. If the weather goes pearshaped there is always the Pub/Restaurant.
    I only put up the adresses/Websites and peole make their own arrangements. Easier for all

    Nice. Wouldn't mind that. Can't plan a thing yet though, as with the "don't mention the war" tour. :(

    Looks good Pete, Germany is certainly on the hit list, but can't commit to anything else at the moment until I know where I'll be work wise.

    Stenna Line are doing £25 off Harwich to the Hook ferry for motorcycle & rider with discount code JAN2. Maybe of use to anyone thinking of taking this crossing and prepared to book in Jan :thumbsup:

    "Motorbikers can also save a cool £25, but remember, this is a popular offer and ends 31 January 2015. And all you need to do is quote JAN2 when you make your booking, it’s as simple as that!"

    Was about £45 each way for end of June with July return when I checked out of curiosity a second ago.

    Hi all, my first post on this trip. Fiona and Debs have been making all the arrangements! I'm just agreeing with it all!

    We're taking two days to head south to Pete's, heading over to Germany then when back to the UK allowing two days to come back up north.

    John, if it lines up with your trades hols feel free to join us mate! Your wife could fly over with Debs and Fiona?

    'we will either be travelling on the Crosstourer or, depending on Mr Honda, the new Africa Twin!

    Watching TV, Bamberg was just mentioned in the film we're watching, Operation Valkyrie, home of Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg.

    I'm sure it'll be a blinding trip, Bamberg looks a stunning location for our base, we always enjoy camping so happy with the arrangements so far.

    Look forward to seeing you all in June!
