Munich

Posted by David McKell

Thursday  Uneventful drive to Munich, except getting lost following road works detour signs. First thing we did was goto Hertz at the airport to explain the situation with the car (so uncomfortable and chews fuel) and they were understanding and helpful. They gave us the options with prices and allowed us to have a look at […]

Prague

Posted by David McKell

Monday  Got bus from hotel to airport to pick up car. Busses were delayed seemingly forever. When we got to the airport and the Hertz counter our day kept getting worse. I have to say that Hertz rental in Berlin were a bloody nightmare and completly useless and rude. Considering we had pre booked the car weeks […]

Nurburgring

Posted by David McKell

Nurburgring   On Wednesday we went to the Nurburgring. The Nurburgring is a 23km track around the town of Nurburg. It is technically a toll road with no speed limits and not a race track (as racing is illegal on public roads).     We hired a track car for 2 main reasons: 1, our hire car insurance […]

Monday Trained to airport, pickup car from Budget no problem, as we were driving out there was a taxi that crashed into a bus and was all up in a fuss. Drove to Metz for the sake of taking a photo of the town sign for Michael’s girlfriend Hayley. Followed the GPS to where we were staying, […]

Posted by David McKell

I know some of you wanted me to put my car around the track, and i would have loved too, however it is not Bathurst and thus i could only view it from the sideline. They were actually packing up from a few days of moto raacing and they had pretty much everything open to […]

Gifts

Posted by David McKell

Ok so the whole trip I have been looking for nice things to bring back as gifts. Except I have not found anything I would class ad nice. There is so much tacky crap I could get, but I hate receiving that crap as it’s useless and just gets thrown out. So anyone who wants […]
