Headed to Poland on a ten day trip on Monday. Hostel in Colditz is a distinct possibility as the BMW museum is closed on Mondays. Will let you know what its like if I do.

Just returned from a similar trip

Hi

your trip sounds similar to mine. i went out solo through Belgium and Germany across to Poland. i got as far as Varna in Bulgaria before heading back. It was my first tour of the continent and first big tour so i guess i made a few mistakes.

I did around 300 miles a day which was way too much to still expect to stop off and see things during the day. I did a bit of camping however next time id just stay in cheap hostels and save on the weight.

The rain was a real downer on the trip and i was soaked for two days in Romania. I also fell off twice in Romania as the roads were covered in mud.

I got to the end of my tour in Austria and rode non stop till Calais. i think next time id just take it easy heading home.

still im itching to get back over next break i have and do more.

Colditz is well worth the stop over, hostel in the castle is clean and new, cheap as well. Even get to look at the tunnels and a small museum.
