August 2020 Northern Germany – A Hundertwasser Tour In 2019 we had two significant holidays which we dubbed “The Biblical Tour“ and “The Australian Challenge”. For the former, unable to hire a Harley-Davidson (or any other two wheeler) we were forced to resort to hiring cars, so you will not hear about it here. The […]
Thursday, August 6th, 2020 – Prague to Leipzig to Magdeburg Distance travelled 470 km On March 14th, 2020, the whole of the Czech Republic had to put on masks (or whatever was at hand) and practically everything closed except food shops, pharmacies and drugstores.

Friday, August 7th, 2020 – Magdeburg to Uelzen to Lutherstadt – Wittenberg Distance travelled 463 km I woke early feeling refreshed and went for a quick turn around the precincts of the Green (which is actually pink) Citadel to catch the sights it offered in a different light.

Fortunately, according to those forecasts, it seemed that the most rain would […]

Monday, October 7th, 2019 – Temora NSW to Mildura, VIC Distance travelled 612 km For some reason, I woke up at about three in the morning. I am normally a good sleeper, but we had experienced a time-change of some sort every day for some days. I guess my brain was a little bit confused. […]
Tuesday, October 8th, 2019 – Mildura, VIC to Quorn, SA. Distance travelled – 582 km The kind of motels we were using have the advantage that I could park the Harley right outside the door.
