Plans for summer

OK got something finalised:

Brussels-Luxembourg- Bonigen (Interlaken) 7 days 15-22 August and return, with son to see seaplane fly-in on Brienzersee. TCS Seeblick - lovely spot!

But what to do after that? Van going back to winter storage October.

Decisions, decisions! Starting from Brussels, seen a lot around there - NE France, Jura, Lux, South Holland, West,west Germany - Black Forest, Moselle. Maybe just go back to UK?

Hoping to do some upgrades in the van so don't want to go too far (read: spend too much - can't do both!)

Any ideas???

As our house is on the market our plans are dependent upon selling and buying.

IF it gets sorted this side of summer we plan to go down to the Italian Lakes and Venice in September.

Anyone want to buy a house?

You did not mention the Vosges hills west of the Basel-Colmar-Strasbourg main drag. We have found some good quiet Aires up there with some good views . Wine country.

Not too much of a diversion back from Switzerland and an easy run back to channel ports.

If it grabs you I can dig out some references for you.

Thank you Geoff I'd appreciate it if you could. Sounds like a good plan, especially if one knows beforehand where best to stop. Yes and there's a BIG quilt festival in Ste-Marie-aux-Mines second weekend Sept. Been there before but not motorhoming. Also Riquewehr on the way to somewhere else.

Yes, I fly out from Manchester on 3 Oct which is a bit earlier than I like to go, but I need to keep an eye on my OOH. He's a bit wobbly on his pins. I'm also t-h-i-n-k-i-n-g of selling my house so I would need to get it sorted during the SA summer. Want to come with me?
