    Ralf__ is on tour...

    I will be mostly quiet during the next three weeks, as i have been also during the passed two weeks.
    A lot of travelling due to my job and holidays mean about 7.000km on the road during four weeks. My camera is with me and i will post some illustrations as soon as i am able to.
    Have a good time. May be there will be a little jump-in from time to time.

          Just a short report. We reached our target after passing 90 locks on the canal de Nantes a Brest: Ivy's bridge: Pontivy!!
          We are now heading back. Everithing is really beautiful. Follow our way on Google Earth: Pontivy, Rohan, Josselin, Malestroit, Redon.
          Have fun! We will sail on for another week.

            Glad you're enjoying it, Ralf. Hope my bridge was in good shape. Have fun, you say, and oh boy, have we had fun today!

                  Booking was done yesterday and first rate was paid in the morning.
                  We are about planning our next summer vacation trip.

                  Again we are renting a vehicle, but next summer, we are on wheels!
                  We will travel three weeks with a Fendt Saphir 515 SKM.

                  Some impressions (pictures by Fendt, this is also not our car, but a promotion car by LandRover):

                      We have chosen this interior design, because living and sleeping area are separated, so there is no need to build up a bed each evening. In the back is a bunk bed for the two kids. You can close two folder doos so you get a "three room appartement".

                      Here you can see some impressions:

                        Our decision renting a Fendt caravan was mainly because we had a positive feeling with quality of the furniture and the useful design of the kitchen, which seemed more familiar to us than in the caravans of the competitors.

                        Kitchen:


                        Huge fridge:

                          WOW

                          This Fendt-caravan seems to be a perfect mobil vacation-home. Even more perfect than my car.

                          The Plintas seems to have good eyes for quality.

                          Are you going to please us norwegians with a visit, or do you have another plans????????

                            WOW! That is what i call a quick reponse.

                            We will start at 26.07.2013 and will be back at 14.08.2013.

                            The destination will be - following the wishes of our children (alternative was Norway) -

                            Great Britain and especially Scotland!

                            A very rough and preliminary tour route could be:
                            Stuttgart - Calais - Dover - somewhere in Suffolk - Newcastle upon Tyne - somewhere in Edinburgh - Inverness - Lairg - Scourie - Isles of Skye - Loch Lomond - Colwyn Bay / Wales - Swansea - somewhere in South West England - Dover - Calais - Stuttgart.

                            Any ideas, recommendations or tips are very welcomed since my last visit at the Britain Islands was about 1980!
