Brushing through Germany...

We’re not doing a great job of sticking to Budget. Actually we’re spending about double what we planned, and that’s unlikely to change. So probably we’re going to cut the “holiday” short to 11 days, maybe 10, and hit Valencia sooner than expected.

The truth is if you want to budget hard and you want cheap accommodation then you’re going to be sat in a hotel room 10 miles out of town eating cheap supermarket food – if you’re lucky enough to have passed a cheap supermarket.

On the other hand if you want to pay the city centre parking, or get a bus in to town, and see some interesting sites, maybe have a beer etc – well then the costs rack up.

May as well experience these countries while we’re here rather than staring at the wall of a Belgian/French/German hotel.

Chief Nav Officer Neil has done a good job booking some cheap quality hotels over the next few days. We’re going to be hitting some sweet locations in France and Switzerland.

Movin' through Europe - oh yeah!

Food and drink tastes better in all these countries. No matter how refined a Brit might think their tastes buds are, forget it. The continental euros have a much higher quality of food and drink.
