My original plan for this blog was to write a series of pieces that related to Europe and the towns and cities I hoped to pass through during a cycling tour of North-West and Central Europe. Sadly finances and the lack of paid leave were against me, and as I’d already started to research and write entries I decided to make the blog a metaphorical journey in which I wote about events, places, people, organisations, food, and other things that interest me about the places I intended to visit. The itinerary was as follows:
Dover – Ostende – Antwerp – Aachen – Bonn – Mainz – Wurzburg – Munchburg – Plsen – Ceske Budejovice – Cesky Krumlov – Linz – Vienna – Bratislava – Brno – Hlinsko – Prague – Dresden – Lutherstadt Wittenberg – Berlin – Neustrelitz – Rostock – Lubeck – Hamburg
This ‘journey’ finished with my post on the bombing of Hamburg and I am continuing the theme of travelling through Europe, but for now visiting countries rather than specific locations. Having left Hamburg the itinerary for the next set of posts is:
Denmark – England – Wales – Ireland – Northern Ireland – Scotland – Iceland – The Faroes – Norway – Sweden – Finland
My intention is to continue writing about events, places, people, organisations, food, and other things that interest me about these places.
