Your dream trip.

For many of you long distance trips are nothing new or even brave.

For me it would be both and I would need to be a lot younger, so this is the trip I will just have to dream about.

From home down to Dresden into the Czechia past Prague on to Austria and Linz back up into Germany to Passua follow the Danube to its source in the Black Forrest on to Alsace and France, Andorra and Spain.

Coming home On the west side of France head East North of Paris through Luxembourg to Frankfurt---up to Hanover and home.

In reality I may get down as far as Munich

You should consider doing it Jean.

As you know we spent summers at Bad Sarrow and Besskow so we've done pretty much exactly that trip quite a few times, once in two days which is sill but German friends set the pace, and more often at our own pace taking a week or more. There are lots of stop offs and the scenery is lovely.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

I donīt think I could on my own Alan, nobody to say "ooh look at that" to.
It wouldnīt be this year, next year that much older
Iīll have to look for a companion who has their own van to travel with.
Itīs really just a dream, seeing the sun made me think of travel so this morning I did a bit of `what iffing`

It certainly is a miss to have no-one to share the wow moments with. But you'll be surprised how much you will enjoy, even on your own Jan.

You've done half the work, in planning! Actually, I do very little planning - just the vague end-point and a very vague squiggly line across the map that I may or (more likely won't) follow. I DO book the ferry out, but not back till I see when n where that might be.

I usually find I'm all excitement till I'm sitting in the driver's seat ready to go n say to myself "Are you mad?!"

That usually lasts about 10secs n then I have a ball!!

When we eventually get the chance to go abroad it might be we could meet up for a few days somewhere - tho the continent is a VERY big place!

You could easy do it Jan. Take your time, maybe six months! What I would do is rather than look for a companion for the whole trip maybe arrange along the way to meet up with fellow travellers or maybe spend a week here and there with them or people you might want to visit around Europe. Then you are free to go your own way when you have had enough of them which you inevitably will. Trips with "friends" nearly always go pear shaped IMO.

This was probably our favourite dream trip. Six months in 2012. Hank blog 2012

I think it was the best one out of the lot. They seem distant memories now and a long way off from any chance of repeating them.

I would absolutely love to help you plan a trip though. I used to love trip planning threads.

Well possibly the next trip will include the hound from hell

Depending on time scale

His back legs are firming up, he eats like a horse three times a day

Loose bowels a thing of the past

So he may well live to blight another holiday

Where?

As yet we haven’t a clue, we have yet to explore Britain

Love Europe but weather permitting Britain is magnificent

But we need take into account poor mobility

But we do now have a disability badge

Oh I think it will remain a dream that trip, maybe I will get to see Alan, but on a more straight forward journey.

6 months I couldnīt leave my home for 6 months
