Summer trip 2017 final update

I have been working on the summer trip and have had to tweak the destinations a bit ,I have had to drop Bosnia so much hassle sorting car insurance for just popping into the country for just 1 day shame but it has freed up some time.

We start at Harwich UK catching a ferry to the Hook of Holland this a night crossing so a cabin is booked

After setting foot in Holland we drive onwards to Herford Germany for the first camping stop, a bit  of  a blast from the past this was a place i was based whilst in the Army.

From Herford a bit of a long drive to Munich checking out the Dachau Concentration Camp  and exploring the city by doing a Third Reich Tour ,Munich being the spiritual heart of Hitlers regime. 


After a couple of days we hit the German roads again and onto Berchesgaden  (Obersalzburg) situated on the German/Austrian border, this was the site of Adolf Hitlers alpine retreat where he spent most of the war at the Bergof, we are booked to stay at Hotel Zum Turken,during WW2 it was used by the SS Hitlers personal guard. Rebuilt after a RAF bombing raid in 1945 it has been restored to the era of the 50’s.

Whilst here a trip to the Eagles Nest, the underground bunker system and the remains of the Bergof are planned, also lake Konigssee

Hitting the road we travel through Austria and Slovenia to Novigrad Croatia just a one night stop then on to Split, and hopefully catching a ferry to Hvar a town situated on a island within a short ferry trip from Split.



The next stop is Venice Italy just the one night camping then onto Vernazza Italy  on the west coast from here we stop at San Remo.

At San Remo we say goodbye to 2 of our fellow travellers after a rest and hit the road for the final push for Blighty via Castellane France.

This is the final plan, looking forward to exploring these new places , we start on the 25th of July.
