We’ve had a busy week this week. After leaving Nuremberg we went to the Knaus factory at Jandelsbrunn in the south east of Germany, just 25 km or so from both the Czech and Austrian borders. On the way we stopped off at a campsite in Eging, and then a stellplatz in Waldkirchen.
The team at the Knaus factory sorted out a couple of warranty issues which the factory in Hungary couldn’t fix back in March, and the van’s now 100%.
After leaving the factory we spent the next couple of days driving across Germany, covering more than 500km, and we stopped in Speyer for a last night in Germany before crossing over to France.
Speyer is home to the Technik Museum – the Technical Museum – which specialises in transport, everything from submarines to a Boeing 747 and a Russian space shuttle (no Trabants though!). Carol has come down with a cold and wasn’t feeling great – her first one since beginning our travels – so I went to the museum on my own (with her blessing!). I got there for opening time and had the place to myself, which was good as two hours later the place had been overtaken by kids. I returned to the van at lunchtime so that we could set off for France.
