Sadly our original plans were a bit to ambitious. We have tried hard to find suitable hotels for our Autumn weekend in the Champagne area, without much success! Either not available for the weekend, no suitable/safe parking, no bar, no restaurant, not enough rooms, to far away but mostly way to expensive which was a bit of a surprise.

We now have decided on the Eifel/Mösel area in Germany. We found a few nice hotels to choose from similar to the ones we are used to in our earlier weekends. We took an option on a few hotels and we will make our final choice in February-March after we have visited all the places.
For the Champagne drinkers amongst you the consolation is that they also have very good wines in the Mösel Valley!

The weekend will start on Thursday the 19th of September in a hotel in the South of Dutch Limburg, where we will gather together and stay the night. On the Friday we will continue to our final destination where we will stay until Sunday. We will set out a touristic route but you can also make a quick dash along the Motorway, Autobahn and main roads. On the Saturday we will set out a nice tour and on Sunday there will be a trip in the North or North-West direction home to our Lunch location.
You may also choose to join us at our final destination on the Friday and skip the Thursday.

Prices will be in line with the earlier events but the exact figure has yet to be determined. This will include Breakfast on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Diner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and of course the Lunch on Sunday where we will say goodbye and travel home. You can have the lunches on Friday and Saturday at your choice: lunch-room, McDonald's, restaurant or snack-bar. In the past the lunches were considered to copious for some/many.

Check this place out regularly for further details.
