Great weather and the URGENT need for some hollidays
forced us to leave.

As i had no further parts (U-joint) to built in, we have to handle
an ammount OF STRANGE NOISES.
If it wont go anymore, we will have have to ask ADAC (AAA) to
pick us up and bring us back home.

Will tell you , how far our wounded A will bring us.

Looks like a great trip. We drove the Romantische Straße about 20 years ago, but didn't get east. Beautiful country and charming villages. Keep us posted!

Thank you for your nice comments, which i really appreciate.

After a nice evening with Motorcycle-friends
in Gifhorn,
we had a short night.

Getting older, means to know that in advance
which
made me plan a short leg on ourDay 3 .

Heading north again, we passed thebig flat area,
which was caused by last ice-age.

Most of Europe is blessed with not having empty beer cans & empty fried chicken & hamburger paper bags thrown all along the sides of the countryside roads like we have in the U.S.

Also not many people driving around on their tiny spare tires with dented fenders, one headlight, & having transluscent polyethelene film, (visqueen), taped with duct tape to the the rear & side auto window frames.

Thanks for sharing the very beautiful scenery, well kept real estate, & well kept vehicles everywhere!

On our way to the north, we meet lots of old
cars, which are on same tour (but far behind us).

We urgently recommend to travel Sylt.

I didn't know Germany had a dune.
We have the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico, which is very large, and looks similar to the dune you pictured.

By accident, we found Meyers-Hotel in Harsefeld,
with a nice room, a closed garage for our car

This is, where Elvis lived when he was over here in Germany.
He is very allive there and you even find his pics and signatures
iin barber-shops

Here he created his version of the german song
"Muss i denn, muss i denn zum Städtele hinaus..."
(which was least successful song of his whole carreer)

We did 463km on this last day of our Nordland-Tour.

Alltogether we did 1875 km in 7 days (about 1200Miles).

Our Tudor is real mighty and never left a doubt, that
he wants to go back to Frankfurt on his own wheels
(Im sorry that i had times of disbelief)

We love that car

More advantures to come

Greetings Christoph

Cristoph, I could feel my dead Germanic relatives rising in unison, all saying "You've got to go, you idiot! Germany-Dietzold, Bremerhaven & Morgenstern, Breitenbach, Bavaria, Holland-Van Giesen, Switzerland-Ritz. Nice trip and in a model A. My Town Sedan is still being put back together. Someday!
