We this is the final instalment and it seems to have took as long to update as it did to do the trip.
The last day of decent driving was today, day 9, as we were heading back into Germany through Western Austria.
We did stop off for lunch at one of our usual haunts and this hotel was the winning one from a previous tour and where spent the night out with the staff in the town of Gmunden, there were rumours of children being fathered here.
My Sat Nav had gone haywire when leaving and put me on the back foot and made me pass a Police road check three times which I got stared at intensely by the coppers each time, luckily they didn't pull me over.
I deleted a few way points and this took me on a quicker route that got me ahead of everyone again and I was soon on Rosfeldstrasse which is a favourite road of ours. It is close to Hitlers Eagles Nest.
You do have to watch out for the wildlife when on tour and something as large as a cow can put quite a dent in the front end.
My car had a little bit of altitude sickness on this run, I still haven't got to the bottom of the problem and it only happens when I'm above 1500m, so this is something I can't test at home.
This was another long night that went on until daylight, and I don't remember any of it!
The next morning I decided I was going to have a lie-in as I didn't need to be back to the UK too early and everyone else headed off back to the UK. I cruised at around 130mph through Germany with a few 150mph sprints and did 110mph all the way through France, border to border.
I must have collected a couple of thousand flies on this trip....one of my final fuel stops.
Pzero had an issue with tyres on the way back where he lost some strips off them, this limited progress for him.
When I got to the tunnel Rob was just leaving and he showed me a few pics from the nights preceding.
In summary, the trip was great as they always are, Croatia is nice and so are the people but I personally probably wouldn't holiday there and the road surface isn't the greatest, they aren't bad but just not the best, apart from the Autobahn's which are great.
We did see too much motorway and next year we agreed to make it a little shorter of miles and days and probably stay somewhere Central Europe again and revisit some of the early tour roads. Austria will probably be on the menu though as it is superb. _________________ http://euroroadtripper.blogspot.co.uk/
