After a marvelous trouble free journey from home to Folkestone (well it was 4.30am)........ I wish all UK road were this quiet and empty...... we landed in Calais, the weather was purrfect indeed.
This was immediatly followed by 3 hours of empty french roads where we found ourselves in Epernay, home of the champagne caves/house, as usual we turned up when the place was closed (12-2pm - bless the french)..... we managed to get a few bottles of Peter the Beef champagne, nibbled on some obscene chocolate cakes and headed further down the A4 towards Germany.
Some 949km from home we arrived here in Baden Baden, all in all 12 hours on the road and about 8 or so driving, we are staying in the Am Markt hotel in the old town, 100% spot on, great location, great hosts. After we got here we headed for the Carcella Spa...... we passed the 'naked only' one (for obvious reasons), the temperature now is about 23 degrees (9pm) blue skies, now off out for a few too many german beers and some good rich healthy food. The first day has been a dream, the road manners great - except for one Luxembourger tosser in a C5, but we saw him off....., a perfect start to our trip.
I could live here, it's great.
