Places to stay

Hi folks,
My wife Diana and myself (Craig) arrive in the UK late April and are going to ride our Triumph Tiger in a clockwise direction from Felixstowe and then over to Europe for a quick look.

Now what I am going to ask is....
Is any body willing to give us a bed to use on our travels. On our return to OZ we will be heading to Western Australia and once settled will be more than willing to reciprocate.
The reason I am asking is that accommodation is so dam expensive and with the exchange rate it will be tight as it is.

Our itinerary works something like this.

Late April - early May.
Pick up bike in Felixstowe 5th May. Will be there a couple of days earlier then leave Felixstowe 6th may

Plymouth area 11th - 15th May
Fishguard area 16th - 18th
Cork area 19th - 22nd
Galway area 23rd - 26th
Larne area 27th - 30th

Newcastle Upon Tyne area 4th -7th June
Hull area 8th - 11th
Harwich 12th - 15th
Amsterdam area 16th - 19th

Champagne 4th July
Probably Dover 5th
And then onto Felixstowe to put the bike back on the boat to Oz on the 8th July.

I can be emailed on "wilkydiney at gmail dot com"
I can supply a bio for both Diana and myself.

Cheers and thanks
Wilky and Diney

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
