Time we went further afield methinks and gave the cars a decent outing... :)

Thinking about this for a while now - Calais to Reims is 265 KMs

Anyone up for this - probably a weekend trip - maybe overnight near the tunnel on the Friday night and then over to France for a night... champagne dinner etc

Or two nights over there?

Thoughts and interest please? Will need to be late June next year (after exams etc)

Well this is similar to what me, Burna and Bignum were planning last year going further afield. Reims, then Luxemburg, back up via Brussels, back to Calais. That's three countries then. ;)

I did from Geneva to Calais once in a day without too much fuss. Reims is only half this distance.

June is a bit of a bugger as it's more expensive and slap bang when we'd have our normal annual holiday in the sun.

I was talking with Vicki and we were considering a drive to Barcelona via Bordeaux.

There's so many exciting places to go in Europe and so much to see. :D

Jeez guys, if you're going to hit Luxembourg, you might as well stop by the Ring for a couple of laps and then drop by the house for a night before passing through the Netherlands and Belgium back to Calais. That makes 5 countries. BTW - I just got back from Oktoberfest in Munich. Holy drunkfest batman!

Oh,... and I'm down for this.

Years ago met a long term G/F at the Royal Champagne Hotel as part of an 8 day trip to Champagne! (ouch my liver...!)

There's a great book for 8 quid at Works. Bought it sat, well worth it. His life story plus pics of all his art etc. I hadn't realised before, but those pics that look like repeating patterns he did - they're like those magic eye pics and appear in parallax 3D. Fantastic!

Date will have to be after the Uni exams (now governed by the timetable) :)

Love the way you have decided and not Ste - class

To be fair it was a joint decision but he's never got round to putting us down, so while I'm so busy at work, I thought I'd do it.

I can't wait now, does anyone know how many sleeps there are???:yahoo::woot:

Well just made contact with my mate at Champagne Taittinger - and looks like we might be able to arrange something with them (visit to their cellars / perhaps a tasting or two :))

He will also be able to advise on where to stay etc

Also I really need to arrange a recce over there to ensure that the hotels etc are right for the cars etc

The major problem is the date - as I dont know when I am away - but potentially end of June for a month / 6 weeks!

Looks like this might have to happen in later in year - prob September

Hi guys and apologies - I have now been offered promotion and start full time in a new college from August - which is good :)

I also have to take the whole of July off to sit in the sun :( :)

June dates are difficult for me to arrange a full-on meet - but up for chatting about a mini-jobby John (if you dont mind me tagging along in a 350z! :)

Unfortinately my chap in Champagne seems to have dropped off the face - ever since me talking about Supra owners (a coincidence? :))

John - time for a beer?

Hi guys and apologies - I have now been offered promotion and start full time in a new college from August - which is good :)

I also have to take the whole of July off to sit in the sun :( :)

I may just pick a weekend in August and say "hey, meet me here for a weekend of fun" since nobody seems to want to organize something. Oh, I'm officially leaving Europe the first week of September.
