The journey so far is going well. 1st night in Europe was spent on a free site in a place called Lisse, it's halfway between Hook of Holland and Amsterdam. We spent one day in Amsterdam revisiting old haunts and enjoying cake lol!!! After our experience we arrived back to BFG (Motorhome Nickname) only to find that we had a parking ticket even though there were no parking signs anywhere. So, in disgust we decided to stick 2 fingers up to them and move onto Germany!! Hannover was a nice city with an impressive Rathaus (townhall) which had 4 large display models of the town in 1700's, pre war, post war where the whole town was practically rubble apart from the Rathaus and some barely standing churches and one of the modern day Hannover.
We've put some miles on BFG now approx 700 since leaving Clacton and are now in a nice little camp sitejust outside of Leipzig with proper showers so i made the most of it and had a Hollywood shower for about half an hour. I never thought a decent shower could be relished so completely lol!! We drove through a huge storm with lightning coming down either side of us, it was immense to say the least. The Site we are on is a cycle ride away from a really nice lake and Lido which Laura and I cycled to last night and watched a really nice sunset. We're off into Leipzig on the bikes this morning to do some sightseeing and may return to the Lido for a swim and sunbathe later. (Andy)
I concur to that the above words are true :) (Laura)! Und es ist wanderbar under fantastich!!!!!
