BAOR Return Poppy Travel Tour 25-31 August 2008

#1
Inspired partly by a few threads about BAOR then and now Poppy Travel is organising a true bottlefield Coold War tour next year with the aim of visiting the old barracks bars and other haunts around the old BAOR. Might consider getting some old NVA types to tell the story of the other side of the cold war. It may even need an adventure training day as a drying out day.

Anyone interested in coming along?

Any suggestions for places or activities that should be on the itinerary? (Only those suitable for consideration by a national charity please)

Berlin obviously. If you haven't been there for a while then what they did where the wall was is a very strange site indeed.

Hartz mountains? Drive down to where the IGB used to be and see if you can find the place.
