Normally I come home through France but have decided this time to return via Austria and Germany. Just off the A3 within about one mile of the motorway near Wurzberg which is the last biggish place before you hit Frankfurt at junction 66 is Camping Wertheim Bettingen. There is a nice grass field with EHU for the tourers like me but you can use all the facilities of the site which includes an outdoor restaurant and bar; it had been a long drive and all I felt like doing was crashing out at the bar!

The site is along side the river Main and certainly hit the spot as far as I was concerned for an overnight stop. I was mainly surrounded by Dutch caravanners whom I am convinced are the most ambitious of us all when it comes to touring and seem to know the best spots to stay!

Mind you, I am no slouch myself. My journey was Bologna, Modena, Verona, Brenner, Innsbruck, Kufstein, Munich, Nurenburg, Wurzberg, Frankfurt, Cologne, Venlo, Eindhoven, Antwerp and so to Calais.
