Big loop of Europe - Any tips appreciated.
I'm losing my cherry with a little 4000 mile 'bimble' around Europe over July and August. The rough route is as follows:
Channel Tunnel to Calais -> Amsterdam -> Lippstadt -> Berlin -> Prague -> Krakow -> Budapest -> Vienna -> Zagreb -> Venice -> Milan -> Monaco -> Bordeaux -> Caen -> Calais.
At the moment, the only things set in stone are that I land in Calais on the morning of the 23rd of July and I'm booked into a hotel in Amsterdam for that night.
At present the plan is to camp between the cities and the hotel it when I get to each city, so I can dump riding gear and mooch about like a 'proper' tourist. If I can camp and leave the tent securely, while I take the bike into the cities I want to visit, even better.
I have no fixed return date, although I do need to be back in the UK by Sept 4th. I intend being as flexible as possible about routes and times, so if you see a glaring error in my planned route, please feel free to let me know.
I'm going solo and don't envisage this being a problem. I've been through a lot of threads about what to take and I think I've got it all covered. I have all the paperwork I need and the bike has just been serviced and a new rear tyre fitted less than 1000 miles ago.
What I'm hoping for are any camp sites or hotel/B&Bs along that route I've mentioned, that anyone can recommend, or places of interest that are worth a detour of a day to visit, please.
