Where I stayed
We're with the late, great, John Lennon: "Instant Karma's gonna get you!"
And so to the Parkhotel, Lingen. Check out the photo of our room on this page. € 90.00. Yep. Ninety big fat European units of currency. Now we made a fundamental error and have to take responsibility for not doing our homework. We pulled in to Lingen quite late. We'd started the day in blazing sunshine and beautiful warm conditions, as we have for weeks now without exception. However in mid-afternoon it rained, only for about 5 minutes but it also got a bit chilly
So the 2nd place we tried was this one. One room left. € 90. We're told it was that price because of the event. Right then we should have had a look at what we were agreeing to, before we unpacked the bikes. So that's our bit of the deal not followed up. Caveat emptor. However.
Sadly, we can't recommend the Parkhotel, Lingen. Imagine I'm holding my arms out very wide. We can't recommend it by THIS much.
All the individual hotel staff were fine.
We did ride through some lovely northern forest country, and beautiful bucolic villages to get here. We're back to the minor roads and it's so much better. We've got a few nice shots from the ride and we've got a little bit of video to fix up and upload.
