This was the cultural trip of them all
Sadly all not well that does not end well, and 10 miles from home I would have an accident that would see my bike a write off!!! Well at least I walked away from it.

 
Route taken - 2000 miles approx
Six of us set of from North shields Ferry to Ijumden to visit Berlin, Warsaw and Krakow. A very cultural tour visiting the Check Point Charlie museum , The Gestapo torturer chambers the remains of the wall in Berlin. Then of to the historic capital Of Poland Warsaw and finally a couple of nights in Krakow to visit Auswitch and Berkenau and to calm us down a lovely visit down a salt mine, before returning home via Praque and a Visit the German prison of war camp Colditz and then heading back for the ferry at Ijumden.
