Proposed trip to Eastern Europe (updated plan)
Further to my earlier thread, my friend and I now have a firmer route (in terms of countries) thanks to lots of information gained from you guys and the rest of the HUBB.
We now plan to travel in the last 3 weeks of June (for better weather) and our intended route is UK - Holland - Germany - Poland (now our main destination) - Slovakia - Czech Republic - Germany - Belgium - France (only briefly, to Calais) - UK.
We hope to spend the second of our 3 weeks exploring Poland; the salt mines and Auschwitz are high on our list of priorities.
We don't intend to book much accommodation ahead, but won't be camping.
Hoping for easy off-road routes in Poland - any info on this would be great.
Have now junked the idea of the BMW off-road course since the price has increased by £100 for next year. Renting gear and accommodation will result in a cost of over £600 for the weekend! Currently, I'm looking for some less expensive off-road training here in the Peak District. Any ideas? Really need to have bikes and gear provided since we don't want our gear trashed when we fall off (which I know we will).
As ever, all suggestions within this intinerary are welcome.
Thanks to all who've offered suggestions so far on my earlier thread.
