Looking at doing a short EU trip this summer, will only be around 10days or so due to work commitments.
Looking to leave London to Dover across the ferry to Calais then off to Burgee for a couple of nights, then carry on up to Amsterdam for a couple of nights.
Then on the remaining days looking to loop back around towards Calais for the ferry home. Any suggestions for interesting places to visit on the way back around?
There will be two of us on an old rattley CB500 and GS500 avoiding the motorways once we leave the UK. We will be strapping a tent, sleeping bag and kip mat to the back (wont bother with cooking kit) to keep our options open but may well just end up finding cheapish B&B’s throughout.
A good place to stay once in Amsterdam is camping Zeeburg, close to the city centre but also nicely located on a lakefront. Check out their site : Amsterdam Camping Zeeburg - Welcome to Camping Zeeburg. Public transport is nearby so you don't have to drive into the citycentre if you don't want to. You probably know Amsterdam's reputation but there is a lot more of course, the city centre is compact and offers for many tastes and don't worry parking your bikes, just park them on the sidewalk a bit on the side so you don't have to pay the crazy parking fees (for cars). Lock them properly to a pole or something and you'll be allright.
Cheers, Rob Smits
Brugge is a real nice place with some cracking bars, try the monks hole, thats the name of the bar not the position depending on what you like but the Menin gate and the Tynecot cemetries are worth a look, Ghent is also very nice, last time i was over i stayed in a B&B in Molem which is handy for the train into Brussels and Antwerpen
Well things are happening I picked up the 1998 gs500 (£560 ebay bargin), much better than i was expecting i've put some new avon roadrider tyres on it (£150) and its basically ready to go- just got to change oil and plugs just to be on the safe side and sort the RUBBISH headlight
My mates cb500 just needs the disc lock ground off as hes lost the keys!
Sorry mate but I found Holland very boring.
I’m not into dope and most country roads are alike so it doesn’t do anything for me, but each to there own.
And yes we have a ferry in on the East side and a road out to the South
Brugge is nice if touristy,Ghent is worth a visit the centre is lovely,Antwerp is fantastic I loved it. I camped in Ghent but if a local had not jumped in his car to lead me to the site I would never have found it! Youth hostel in Antwerp is nice & it has a bar easy tram ride to the centre. Any town has plenty of bars & the is great, Palm is a personal favourite,try a few, after all most are recipes from monks
