Did you have fun? We did...and didn't.

Before even setting eyes on the Zundapp the thought crossed our minds that we might never get out of Germany. That would be because our choice of transport is 70 years old.
We could have no idea as to how true that was to become!

People ask us "why do we do it?" We asked ourselves the same question every day! We haven't come up with an answer yet! But, what if our plan worked? How cool would that have been.

Having no specific plans when holidaying is a great thing, especially when it all goes pear-shaped. However, as a consequence of problems we did and saw some great things, therefor there can be no complaints.

We are proud to own such a piece of motorcycling history. And because of our choice of bike we have met some great characters in our travels. She's like a magnet to young and old.

When Brunhilda was running, she was great. And she'll be great again when she comes home. We have plans to do many miles with her and she'll serve us well - eventually.

The highlights of our trip include the Sidecar Rally, the MV Meeting, Guzzi's 90th, Catweazle, everything in England, Bruxelles, the ancient villages in Germany (such as Rothenburg ob ter Tauber and Dinkelsbuhl), the big cities, Veterama, Sinsheim & Speyer and of course all the people we met along the way. We wouldn't want to have missed any of these.

Would we do it again - NOPE. But the mind is already thinking "what about this" and "what about that"? All terrible ideas with great possibility.

See you on the flip side - P&K


  1. Hi Kerry and Paul
    Can I thank you for a most interesting travelogue!
    I've been following your latest trip every day, waiting in anticipation for the next installment.
    The Zundapp I am sure will be a priceless ride, once Paul has sorted her peculiararities (that is a word, isn't it?)
    Catweazle is in Oz and arriving to my place this coming Monday. Remember, he's a good cook!
    Cheers guys!

  2. Thanks Paul & Kerry,
    I just want to say again how much I enjoyed every update. I found your blog to be very well written, informative and entertaining. You visited places and towns and cities I've never heard of and will certainly never get to visit. I almost felt as though I was travelling with you as a silent bit of baggage, able to see everything (through your photos) but unable to gooo and gaaaa at the sight of all the bikes, towns, cities, churches, streetscapes, museums, rallies and all the other interesting sights you managed to capture on film.
    The blog and photos would make a great coffee table book.
    It would be great to meet you both by the roadside or anywhere else one day.
    Thanks again and all the best for future rides.
    Chris D. (also on 3 wheels)
