On Sunday morning we departed Troyes for Echternacherbruck which is on the German border with Luxembourg. We have now stopped using the expensive toll roads now we have met up with our friends to complete a leisurely tour of the German Mosel Valley together. We spent 3 relaxing days on this site, walking into town to explore as well as driving out further afield to find our next site, which is where we are now. The site is on one side of the River Sauer in Germany, and across the bridge on the other side of the river the town is in Luxembourg, with all the tax free benefits including fuel at 90 cents a litre instead of the 111 cents a litre in Germany - so this is where we filled up prior to departure, and calculated that on our leisurely drive from Troyes we made 35mpg, as opposed to the faster motorway journey from Calais to Troyes where at 80mph, consumption of our 2.8 turbo diesel engine fell to 25mpg. Here are a few shots of Echternach - the Luxembourg town.
This morning we left Echternachacherbruck for our next chosen location - a beautiful site on the banks of the River Mosel at Ellenz-Poltesdorf in Germany, again using the scenic route which was spectacular.
This is our pitch at our new site, where we might just remain a little longer to explore the area fully.
