By this time we were about 400km down, bums were getting sore and we were sick of the Autobahn, so we decided to cut the corner and went bush following the GPS. Of course it took much longer, :) what with closed ferries and bridges, then the rain started. Out with the rain suits and we pressed on. \
We finally arrived in Hildesheim about 12 hours & 560 km after setting out
The hotel is fabulous (gotta love booking via the net!) and right on the town square reconstucted after the town centre was bombed flat in 1945. Pics will be great.
Hildesheim is the birthplace of my Great Grandfather ( dad's mum's dad) so it's a special place to visit for us.
Now grabbing pizza and trying to find WiFi we can hijack.
