So we were in Dresden, which we hadn't planned to go to but enjoyed greatly, and had a bit of a rethink about getting as far as the Baltics. That's the joy of not being too planned for our travels, the willingness to change direction, anyway, we decided to try the Czech Rep. after a bit of Saxony.
We thought - pop in for a few days and then head into Poland. That was a week ago and we're still here. We keep finding lovely places to stay by lakes. Rob keeps finding steam trains, and we've been seduced by endless meals with dumplings.
Must find time to blog about this area, and the German bits we've been to, when we get home in Sept. In the meantime, we'll probably move on to Poland in the next few days, but are not got to the Baltics now. Will head northish in Poland, maybe see what the coast is like, though Rob reckons it's a bit 'kiss me quick', and then go back to Germany via the Hartz mountains for more trains. Sounds like a plan?
If you do campsites, we stayed a lovely little site near Brno called Camping Hana. Very friendly folks who run it; next to a river; and an electric boat that takes you into the centre of Brno. Nice walks along the riverbanks too into the nearby village where I think there are one or two cafes/resto's etc.
