Well the trip is certainly beginning to take shape. Our original idea was to not organize too much but we have decided to at least start with some definite plans for the first four weeks. This will see us travel extensively within Germany and do a side trip to Poland in order to see Auschwitz (which is on the 'must do' list.)

From Frankfurt we will journey to Dusseldorf. Apparently there are some bars there which form a consecutive line, which make them the 'longest bar in the world'. Interesting concept and one which Steve will surely put to the test! (Can't wait to see those pictures!)

Then it will be on to Hamburg and Berlin. So much history and so much to see, according to the travel guides.

Then Auschwitz. Expect this to be a very moving experience. Like Hiroshima in Japan, it is a place cemented in our psyche from history lessons and avid watching of the History Channel. Sombre but definitely worth a visit if in this part of the world.

Berlin to Munich section has not been organized as yet. However, a stopover in Nuremberg is on the cards as that city is reputed to have a fantastic Christmas Market!  Can't resist a good market especially one which sells mulled wine. (Whatever it takes to keep warm!)

It's all beginning to take shape - even bought the hiking boots and snow jacket last weekend. four weeks and counting..........................................
