Meet & Greet:- An overall briefing of the Rally will be given at 8pm in the Bar, including detailed information on tomorrows leg of the rally. As we’re in the bar area, we’ll have a Fun quiz for teams to check their knowledge on continental driving, this is always good for a hearty laugh, especially as the wine flows……. and what you don’t know, you’ll find out here. The Rally begins tomorrow as you arrive in Calais, but the excitement and anticipation of a great adventure begins here along with meeting strangers who will become your good friends.
Day 1… Saturday 22nd
We begin our Rally from Calais and head for Central France.
We’ll ensure you have co-ordinates for really interesting places and events along the route. These include such splendour as Versailles and necessities like vineyards to visit with wine to be tasted.
And a plethora of WW1 & WW11 sites to be in awe of
Each evening, we meet up to discover how our other Globe Trotters have mis-ordered food and have delighted with the unexpected. The following days destination are given with much more detail along with Sat Nav co-ordinates BUT you choose which route you would rather take.
Day 2…Sunday 23rd
We head towards Italy and you might choose to navigate through the stunning skiing village of Chamonix as you head towards the mighty Mont Blanc mountain.
Driving straight through it along the legendary Monte Blanc Tunnel to reach Italy on the other side. At over 7 miles, this was the longest tunnel in the world when it opened in 1965.
Day 3…Monday 24th Venice is calling us
Navigation skills are put to the test again (thank goodness for SatNavs) as the next leg of the Rally heads us towards Venice.
We’ll stay near Venice for an entire day, long enough to allow you to catch the boat and approach Venice from the sea, surely the most magnificent way to arrive and appreciate the majesty of Venice. Take in St. Marks Square and enjoy a ride in a gondola .
From the Hotel, a boat ride to in Venice, surely the most majestic way to arrive.
Day 4…… Tuesday 25th We’re here in Venice ALL DAY.
In the late 16th Century, Venice was home to Italy’s greatest lover, Casanova. Venice traded in many goods and services at this time and you can visit ‘The Bridge of Boobs’ where Courtesans would display their wares to the very rich and prosperous merchants as they passed by.
We sleep here near Venice, then we’re off to another World Class Event
Day 5…… Wednesday 26th
We’re off to Munich BUT first, you might like to pop into the World Famous Castle that inspired Walt Disney to unashamedly copy it and use it as HIS corporate logo ….. Stunning isn’t it, and yes, we have the Sat Nav co-ordinates too.
Cunning calculations, immaculate timing and this Leg of the Rally will see us arrive at the Oktoberfest 2018. We’ve journeyed from Casanova’s Venice in Italy to the amazing Bavarian Munich Oktoberfest to enjoy the Cultural Celebration of the hop, which is taken very seriously as the pictures below show.
