Viagra 2014 Is Go: 30 May - 1 June 2014

Page 1 of 9 - 1 2 3 ... 9
Well, 2014 is the next VIAGRA Tour.  Europe's turn.

So let's start with some ideas and dates.
wey hey !!! away we go again.
I should be in - car is almost ready (how many times did I say that?) and otherwise I'll join Johan or Martine. Heard rumors about Spain!
keith and i are looking at that but it depends on the timescale of what people want to do. spain from us is a very long way for a three day round trip.
we would need to extend it to maybe 5 or 6 so there is food for thought.
i dont know if people fancy that duration.
i dont mind.

an alternative we have looked at is honfluer on the west coast of france. within easy reach for most and well known by keith and myself that we could together some interesting ways there and things to do for the drive out day.

still all very open to chat about as ever
Yes, agree, Spain is a long way. I'll alert Johan (and his Spanish friend) and Martine to this conversation. Normandy would be fun too. Think its time for NL to organize?
I have been looking at routes in the northern part of Spain which is accessible by ferry. However the amount of time spend one way or another to get there and back is significant compared to the total trip. West coast of France is fine with me for sure. It is indeed the Dutch to organise
France - retracing Bond's route in Goldfinger :-) Been done before but I wouldn't mind. Need to be in Europe on 11th June so around then would be ideal.
1600 miles round trip. Bond did leave from Southend though so some of us may get as far as Rikki's.
I would advise you to avoid the first week in June in Normandy. I tried to set up a little tour for a local group of South Coast enthusiasts and found that nearly all the hotels were already booked a that time. The reason is because it is the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings and there will be a lot going on.
If we choose Normandy I can involve Sjak, since he used to live there.
But any destination is fine by me :)

Possibly I am pretty flexible to organize stuff from January and onwards, since I will be quitting my daytime job and probably making the leap to freelancing (before I move to the US, but that's another story  ;D)

Do we want to do the trip in spring, mid summer or late summer?
Film locations: Goldfinger

we could do to Orleans and back. If not June, then late summer works best for me.
No preference for me.
How about a nice 3 country trip? Netherlands(limburg), Belgium(Ardennes), Germany(Eifel) Easily accessible. Happy to organize but as one of the Viagra initiators it would be back to the roots (Virages in all guises only). 
If we fancy that part of the world then leave it to me as i have been there about 50 times at least and have organised so many bike trips i cant remember. keith also well versed with it as he golfs there all the time as well. i doubt there is a hotel or restaurant i havent eaten in and was there for five days in june this year alone. ok i need numbers now and any dates that might be good i will start with the usual cut and paste Russell + Jo Keith + his right hand

Ok, so that means no more Johan, Martine and me, I guess.
