Day 3

This is the day that we trek across the country to end up at the Hotel Reoneo in Vernirovice, the rally hotel for the weekend.

Hopefully even with a few stops between Plzen and the rally, firstly at the Church of Bones and then at my friend Rosta's house in Hradec Kralove plus a "bag a country" trip across the border into Poland, we should arrive mid afternoon. Plenty of time to get checked in and meet our Čzech hosts.

This will be my sixth Čzech Centre rally. All the previous five have been held at Pod Horkou in the village of Chudcice near Brno. As it seems that we are the only British making the trip, it will be between Giles and Phil who gets a prize for furthest travelled! Although we may be surprised and see some other foreigners have attended.

Day 3

Day 3

At the moment we have no idea what the programme will be for the rally itself. As someone that rarely drinks alcohol any more (it makes me sick!) I should be okay with the Čzech Republic's 0% alcohol in blood to drive. Usually on the Saturday there is a ride out to somewhere of interest. Looking on the map I have no idea what that might be!

So days 4 & the first part of Day 5 are a mystery.

Day 5 PM

Probably much earlier the afternoon we need to be away from the rally hotel and on our way south. You'd think that UK would be west, but to meet the targets of places we want to stop at we need to go south to Brno, and then further south into Austria. I have friends in Brno, or nearby actually, and so I have arranged a short stop over for a coffee and chat before we head into Austria. I had hoped to call in to Zastavka where I lived in the early 90's to see my old apartment and school.

With Phil wanting to try the Romantic Road he then saw that Neuschwanstein Castle was actually at the southern end of the Romantic Road. So we added that. That was quite a detour and so we had to drop a proposed stop at the Sinsheim Technical Museum to get the mileage down for the next day.

Juggling with distances it looked as though we would need an overnight in Austria. We had already decided to buy the 10-day toll ticket for the Austrian motorways to speed up the crossing. In the end we have decided to stay at a motel in Lenzing. It makes the day quite long but the motel has a bar and restaurant on site.

Day 5

So the that will be Day 5.

Day 6

Looking at the route that MyRouteApp proposed showed that we would cross from Austria to Germany bound for Neuschwanstein near Salzburg. This would mean passing close to Berchtesgaden. So that was added to the route.

The day is probably one of the shortest we have on the entire trip!

Then Phil tosses into the discussion a meteor crater that's not far off the Romantic Route as we head northwards along it. So that was added and eventually shuffled to Day 7!

Day 6

Day 6

Our day ends near Augsburg. Part way along the Romantic Road. As we have done a part of it on the way down on Day 2 we will have done about 80% by the end of today!
