Ok guys! I've finally set the date of my trip. The 29th August to the 30th September 2004 is when I'll actually be in Germany (or the Netherlands, of course). I am yet to plan my route, because currently I am gathering all my neccessities together and getting all my touring gear together. I'll be flying into Frankfurt, and I'll have to build my bike at the airport.
I'm seriously considering using a Travelex card while I am overseas for all my financial needs, I'm looking for someone who has had experience with these cards and would like to share their opinions of the service etc.
I'm also looking for any Germans/Dutch who would be willing to meet up and say hello and to just show me around.. maybe introduce me to a few people
I'm an absolute beginner with both languages so I'll just have to battle my way through the phrasebooks..
While I'm in both countries I would like to do a bit of fishing, climbing.. the whole experience, I mean I love fishing (who doesnt!) and would like to experience what another country has to offer in the way of our little water based game.
What I'm looking for is anyone who has travelled through the two countries I have mentioned, on a bike of course.. I'm really keen to hear your tips and tales so I can get a better grip of things when I take my venture!
I appreciate anything helpful you have to offer
