I’ve had second thoughts about my planned itinerary - going to be too expensive to return via Ijmuiden - I’m now thinking of returning via Dunkirk - this mind you shall entail a longer journey home - reckon I also planned too many places for a relatively short break - so I’ve decided to book Cochem for three nights enabling me to do daily trips to discover the area - after that I’m not so sure - bearing in mind I now propose a channel crossing coming home does anyone have any suggestions for the remaining five or six days - okay so after Cochem I’ve decided to visit Dinant on the river meuse for two more nights then maybe a couple more in normandy

Hi, sounds like a good adventure and realistic, we leave Sunday, through tunnel in van, going to Menen gate then heading for Ruhr valley and Hamelin in Germany, keep me eyes open for a UK plate SH! But I suspect we will be ahead of you by then, who knows we don't make too many plans, just rough headings

Have a great trip!

I stayed here on Friday Saturday and Sunday night and had a great time touring around this beautiful area - the hotel is named Zur Post and it was immaculately clean - good value for the price in my opinion - last night and tonight I am staying at hotel Cobut in Falaen in the Ardennes region of Belgium - in total contrast to hotel Zur Post this hotel is in bad need of renovation so much so that it is up for sale and I am the only guest staying here - the proprietor however is extremely friendly - so this morning I plan to ride into Dinant to view the citadel then down to Givet in France both towns being on the river Meuse - tomorrow I head up north to the Belgian coastal town of Blankenberge before boarding the ferry on Thursday from Zeebrugge to Hull - happy days
