    If my memory serves me correct, you and WW left the pub last about 1.30am once they had put all the chairs on the tables, bad influence methinks
    Looking forward to revisiting that fine bar on the Thursday night. Also, I knew exactly where I was...........................Europe.

    I must admit, I was feeling a smidge hungover the next day. White trousers

    Cheers.

    David.

    That would be the Queen Victoria then. The wait in the morning square led to me having a pannier full of cheese and ham baguettes!

    Days out

    Days out

    I have created six alternatives.

    A longish 250 mile loop (200 miles if you drop the additional loop at the top). This I lifted from the 80 Virees a moto thread.

    A jaunt up to Clervaux and back. 190 mile round trip.

    A jaunt up to Givet and back. 150 miles.

    The 'ring. Out and back on different routes. 250 mile round trip.

    Bouillon to Bastogne (Battle of the Bulge museum & American Memorial). 41 miles one way. To come back simply press the hotel in Favourites. http://www.bastognehistoricalcenter....=bastogne_en-1

    Bouillon to Hackenberg A19 (The largest of the Maginot line forts) 95 miles one way. To come back simply press the hotel in Favourites. http://maginot-hackenberg.com/visite...lleanglais.htm

    Assorted ways back

    Ways back

    Lacking any greater inspiration I took the easy route of reversing the ways down.
