We can discuss that in August. I’m just relieved that there is now some level of certainty, as much as there can be in these strange times. We can at the very least do part one, the Black Forest and then take it from there. If we can manage it, I would really like to see Lauterbrunnen in Switzerland if we decide to stay in the BF for a few days. It’s a fairly easy ride from our base via Interlaken.
A wonderful thing is work, I could watch it all day.

That doesn’t matter, it will be a normal working week and I’m not all that interested in the village. I want to see the valley.

So, something has happened that I didn't notice. And just found out, rather belatedly today.

This means that some of my ideas can be put back into the mix.

Apparently on Monday.. things are going to happen here. not that the current situation has been putting people off, FB is crammed with trip reports from bikers who have thumbed their noses at this farcical 14 day quarantine. And none.. not a single one of them has reported a phone call from the GOV making sure they are self isolating.

and a pretty photo.

And... We're off!!!
People arriving in England from countries including France, Spain, Germany and Italy will no longer need to quarantine from 10 July, the government has confirmed.
All passengers, except those on a small list of exemptions, will still be required to provide contact information on arrival in the UK, including details of countries or territories they have been in or through during the previous 14 days.
So, I expect the governments advice on travel to change quite soon, which will mean we can get travel insurance. I still have my tunnel crossing booked as well as a room for the Friday night at the Premier inn.

Big smiles. Alps, here we come!!! :mrgreen:
