    Southern Germany October 2020

    Just a short RR of my trip to Southern Germany last week.

    My plan was to get an early Tunnel out first thing on Monday morning and then head straight to Aachen just over the German border (about 200 miles) with only a socially distanced comfort stop in a layby so as have to avoid any need to quarantine on my return.

    The sun was just coming up.

    Once in Aachen I stopped to refuel myself and the bike. My route was to follow part of the Moselle Valley towards the Black Forest then head down to Lake Constance and then take part of the Deutsche Alpenstrasse to Oberstdorf.

    Sunshine and showers along the Moselle Valley.

    I booked a room in Schiltach which is one of my favourite little towns in the BF.

    No Bounce or Nutty style gluttony on this trip.... so attempted to keep the calorie count down.

    Apart from beer obviously.

    A nice trip take lots of photos so you can remember the trip while isolating for 14 days on your return

    No need to quarantine as Germany is on the exemption list and I was able to travel through France and Belgium outbound and return without having contact with the local population. UK border starts at the Tunnel French side.

    Thanks for your concern mind.

    I lived & worked in Ravensburg in 1986/87 .... beautiful part of the world, they even had beer vending machines in the factory in which I worked, employees could have a "cold one" whenever the felt the need

    Thanks to Tricky for posting lovely pics and triggering some very fond memories

    You timed that well, I think. Great photos, and love the framing effect. How was the Ducati for the trip?

    It's a great bike with a stonking engine and a little bit different from a GS and I've had a few GSs.

    No probs I had to quarantine when I went to Northern Germany and Poland back in August because I made the mistake of taking the Hook of Holland Ferry instead of the Tunnel. I wasn't going to make that mistake again.

    Getting better.

    By the time I got near to Lake Constance the mist had lifted and it was another beautiful day.
