Holidays are coming... (Part 1)

Before I pop out to start another weekend of work I thought I might bore you all with my holiday plans.

My daughter doesn't really want to go away anywhere this year, so the summer will be spent having day trips out to places and maybe a long weekend up to Great Yarmouth or somewhere similar.

I didn't take a holiday last year so I really wanted to go somewhere overseas, so myself and three friends have decided on a trip to Southern France on motorbikes. I was tempted to start another blog on this but figured it would just provide more content for these pages, and maybe attract more visitors from the biking fraternity. (Of course, if you don't want to read about this you can always skip the page.)

The plan was originally to go in September but due to other commitments we've settled on leaving on 6th October, and travelling for around 10 days. The only plan we have so far is that we want to pay a visit to the Menin Gate at Ypres, as well as taking in some of the War cemeteries; then head south towards the new bridge at Millau, and then head down to Monte Carlo for a couple of days. The ride towards home will then take up towards the Swiss / French German borders and the Rhine Valley. Hopefully we'll be able to do the majority of the ride without hitting too many motorways. A couple of the bikes are getting on a bit so we're going to need to be fairly close to some sort of civilisation for most of the trip in case of breakdown.

And that's about it. I'll fill in more details as plans come into place, but any suggestions for touring in Europe would be very much appreciated by this particular novice.

Hi there Kev ,great blog as usual. It,s good to see another cabbie who is into bikes as most of the cabbies I meet are always moaning about us.
I can think of nothing better on a nice hot day than getting out of the cab after a hard day and going for a long ride around the lanes of Bedfordshire where I live and then finish off with a great pint in the local.
Have a great holiday and keep up the Blog.
Cheers Del Boy (legaledoff.com)
