Grand Tour plans for 2013

I'm thinking about a nice long tour and wonder who on the forum has something planned in the 3 months to 1yr+ range to start in 2013. I'd like to hear about it.

Me? 2014 is really going to be my year to head out on an open ended tour but I might see if I can get out of my lease early. About as clear as mud right now but the drive is there.

Nothing that long in 2013 due to other family activities and commitments, so next year will be our next long trek. We are planning on riding the Loire River route in France from the Atlantic and up to Strausborg, then along the Rhine to Lent. From there we hope to go North up to Alborg, Denmark where we have family. One of the problems I need to solve is how to get less expensive plane tickets without buying round trip. We'll know when we are flying into Paris, but do not really know how long it will take to get to Denmark, and then over to Copenhagen airport for our flight back.

Our family (2 adults + 2 two year olds) grand tour for this year is to leave home by bikes and go somewhere to Denmark, one month roughly.
