As far as I can remember I’ve not been anywhere beginning with J. So instead here’s a place I’d like to visit: Jena.

A-Z of My Favourite Holiday Destinations: Hamburg

The second largest city in Germany – and one where I’ve spent a lot of time as it is only 45 minutes by car from Cirencester’s German twin town.

My first visit to Germany was a school trip to the Rheinland in 2006. One of the towns we visited then was Cochem, in the Moselle Valley.

A-Z of My Favourite Holiday Destinations: Berlin

I’ve only been to Berlin once – 5 years ago in November – but as I was originally planning to spend a few days in Berlin in June (before the Coronavirus hit) it seemed appropriate to make it the second destination in my A to Z.

My first full day in Germany started with the realisation that I am more than half way to Itzehoe. Approx 500 miles down – just over 400 to go.

To be honest, this was not the most enjoyable exit from a motorway service station. Hopefully the traffic will be kind to me tomorrow!

German holiday traffic all the way from De Panne, countless lorries, the first traffic jam was before I even made it to the motorway!

Planning My Next European Road Trip

Icon Written by Fred Hart on April 8, 2018 – 22:41

I normally find that by mid-late May the weather in Germany is warm and Sunny – perhaps the odd thunderstorm. I was lucky last year to get temperatures of 30°c down in Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria. This year I won’t be that far South so I don’t think I’ll get quite that! But I hope that, in travelling the last weekend in May, I will get some decent weather.
