Day 57 - Winding down In Luxembourg

Thursday 21st August 2014

This morning I am joined by a bird on the hotel balcony. It flew into the overhanging roof, batted around a bit and fell to the floor. Obviously stunned, it scrabbled up to the ledge and sat in the (avian) recovery position for a good 15 minutes, beady eyes trained on me. Didn't say much.

We set off for the long ride north. No pictures as it is mostly on the autobahnen. We get stuck in heavy traffic for a while around Karlsruhe, then the run through Rhineland Pfalz and the Saar Valley is exhilarating.

It is 354 miles to  the High Chapparal in Luxembourg, where Mick and I camped at the beginning of the trip. This time we have rented a cabin with bunk beds and basic facilities. It proves a bit too basic for Clive who decamps to a hotel in Esch-sur-Sure for the second night.

Ed our host is smiling as ever and the spare ribs for dinner are as good as it gets.

There is an interesting chop parked outside. Whitby-style minimalist, tiny (50cc?) motor, very nicely done.
