It’s a long afternoon on firstly the E51 then onto the E48. We keep to the right hand lane at about 100 kph. The fast movers are never one out, they seem to travel in 2’s or 3’s. I suspect its a bit of a race to see who can scare the other one into backing off. In my younger days I would be one of them. The sun is out, it’s finally t’shirt weather, thank goodness summer has arrived finally.
So we roll into Würzburg with our usual meticulous planning. Stradling the River Main, Würzburg is a bit complex when you have been driving for a few hours. We have the co-ordinates for a campsite on the river, but a fellow who looked surprising like Santa, but with much less charisma, chattered quite rudely ‘full, full’ but I suspect it was 6.15 pm and he just didn’t want to open the gate ! I was happy to let it go but Pam made some unkind remarks about dancer and prancer as we reversed out off the driveway.
On the upside we spotted a couple of campers in the carpark adjoining the soccer field next door. Apparently there were other victims of Santa. So rather than pay €14 to stay in Santa’s place we took the free option.
Anyway our tour complete we walk up into town to have a look around.
We ride our bikes back to our free carpark and start packing up. We are planning to drive Germany’s ‘Romantische Straße’ for the next few days so we better get going.
