    Planning a tour round the the Middle Sea this summer. I just confirmed the dates with work. Mid June to Mid July. 1st week and final week are roughed out. going to be flexible in the middle.

    Week 1 Eurotunnel to Calais.

    Mont Saint Michel

    Château de Guédelonédelon_Castle


    Château Comtal, Carcassonne

    Port Coullioure

    then, Château de Montségur. nice climb to the summitâteau_de_Montségur

    the last four I have been to before but am happy to re-visit.
    Looking forward to seeing the medieval building site near Orleans.

    From there I intend to head into Spain, I have friends to visit and am open at the moment on itinerary
    Then back up through France and into Italy, if schedule requires it I can move Port Coullioure to here as a waypoint. The rest of Southern France I'm happy to ride through. Again open, having spent a lot of time in recent years in Northern Italy and Sicily I may explore Southern Italy more widely, may take the ferry over to Montenegro for a couple of days.
    Plan is to be North of Milan for last week, to take my time through the Alps. then a few days back through Deutschland. I've already spent a lot of time there due to work, but may explore the Rhineland a bit more.

    Happy for recommendations for castles etc.
    Just me at the mo, there's a joy in just seeing what the road will bring.
    If anyone wants to meet up or ride part of the route, welcome.

    Mixed camping and BnB.

    Will be bringing some form of stringed instrument. I'm considering the practicality at the moment, don't want a guitar but i've travelled with ukes before and the soprano got old on the edge of my teeth after a week. I have an irish bouzouki that fits nicely in a banjo case that sounds like a 12 string, (but with 8 :D ).

    end of Week 4 Eurotunnel from Calais.
