We were driving around Nottingham twice and detected that the city is not as interesting as we expected...


so let's go to the campsite.... mhh nobody at the reception...except from our evening meal which was running around ....yum yum...


first put up our tent and than let's go out hunting...


we are surprised about all the different kinds of huge familytents again and again...


seems to be something like an ecological farm... there were even two horses at the back...


catched the guinea fowl and made a perfect pizza from it



The next day we were back on the road...


Horse racing is very popular in England...


watched the secret training


aaaaaaand than... finally the ocean

a little snack and a new GPS-cable... but this gave up the ghost after 3 days... from this point we only had a map instead of GPS... but it come to light, that this was the more varied way of traveling




Welcome to York... a really beautiful city! But how you can see, today it was raining.... no problem, take cover somewhere, eat something and the shower of rain was over....








but after a short time the weather was good...typical english weather...

there was a wedding at that point... I liked the car very much


The couple seems to be really happy






After that we did a circuit around the city and followed the bus..


Afterwards we drove directly to Castle Howard....

still searching for a campsite...not always that easy....there are also campsites where camping (with a tent) is forbidden...


the countryside was awesome...


small campsite with farmaura...


after building up our base camp we made a short trip to the city...






I love this pictures...

The weather on the coast was really stormy during the night, but our bike and the tent hold against the wind...

so first eating something before we get into the rain...tasty...

traveller vs weather ... 1:0
