Europe 2012

Hi,
In the throes of planning a fortnights trip next June with the basic idea of getting to see a little of as many countries as is reasonably feasible within the fortnight.
Initial route at the moment is Scandinavia then down to the east then up to the central countries.So a fair daily mileage using the early start early finish format using some motorways and trunk roads and hotels and campsites.
If interested please reply.

Pete

Europe 2012

HI Pete,

I'm planning to go back to Minsk in 2012. I've been there before and it's fantastic !! The 2 week time-frame sounds ideal but I was planning to catch the Belarus Bike Festival in Minsk.This is traditionally held in August so I'm not sure how that fits in with your June plans.

5 of us went in 2009 and the route was: over to Denmark, thru Germany, thru Poland and on to Belarus.This was a two week trip in all and we didn't go mad to get there.

We did do some camping on the last trip but to be quite frank it was a ball-acher! The hotels in Poland were fine and very cheap and the service is excellent !
In Minsk we had an apartment smack-in the middle if the city and it was about £50 a head between five of us, for 4 nights !

I did the trip on a Yamaha XTZ 850 RR Rallye Motor France and found it to be ideal ! It's a single seat rally bike with rear petrol tanks although I didn't use the rear tanks once !

I play it cautious when obtaining visas (Belarus) so would look to be fine-tuning the trip during the early months of 2012.

There are a couple of other threads on the HUBB from others members looking at Eastern Europe 2012 so this might generate some interest from those guys also.



Cheers - Boycey.

I could be up for a trip into eastern europe, but it would have to be August also.
