25th May – 11th June

Motorcycling in Europe with Fuzz.

Our trip took us under the English Channel to Calais where our journey started in earnest.

We travelled first into Belgium (stopping briefly at Bruges) and into Holland where we stayed at Almere, our base for visiting the excellent Oostvardplassen re-wilding project.

Our onward journey took us across Germany, staying at Cologne, Rothenburg ob der Tauber (a fantastically preserved medieval town) and Regensburg.

From Regensburg, we took a convoluted and interesting route to base ourselves for a night at Cesky Krumlov, a historic riverside town, where we spent rather too much time in a friendly bar that we stumbled upon.

Next was an overnighter in Salzburg (Austria), and then into the Alps for the day, including a ride up and over the Grossglockner High Alpine Road.

We then headed back out of the Alps to Munich, to visit Fuzz’s son Sam and his wife Anna, who’d recently moved there.

Then it was back into the Alps, culminating in a stays in Liechtenstein and Switzerland. Mountain passes included the iconic Furka and Grimsel, as well as some lesser known ones.

Our stay in Switzerland was in the area of the Entlebuch Biosphere Reserve area, based at the village of Menzburg.

The long ride home was via the Black Forest (where we stopped a night), then Reims, and finally Calais. We covered more than 3200 miles.
