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.

Last weekend I spent some time in Cirencester’s German twin town of Itzehoe, which is located in the country’s northern most Bundesland (Federal State): Schleswig-Holstein.

What a busy couple of weeks. Twice a year we do stocktake at work – I’ve done 7.5 hours of overtime in the last week.
