The Continental Loop 2012
A ten day trip that was to take me across the UK to the Netherlands, down to the Black Forest and then back across France to Cherbourg. 100 miles short of closing the loop I managed to trash the bike!
Oh well, next year.
Felixstowe in the morning whilst waiting for the ferry at Harwich.
The Rhine Valley with barge in the background and, if you look very closely, a castle on the hill.
Fairytale castle in the Black Forest.
I've always wanted to see one of these in the flesh just to be sure they actually exist. This at the NSU museum Neckarsulm. Museums are the very worst places to try and take decent pictures!
I arrived in town just in time to watch this classic vehicle parade pass through.
A very French town of shuttered windows and barking dogs. It's why I love touring the country so much.
