  1. Yes! I'll do the Moravian leg!
  2. Visa for Kaliningrad though?
  3. Said the man who coming over in

  4. I have an idea, why don't you come over here? BTW, you definitely need a visa for Kaliningrad. The Russian Embassy in Prague will sort you out...
  5. The border with Poland and Kaliningrad seems to be fairly straighforward - certainly local Poles are allowed to cross without visas, I would suspect if you are on a bike with a valid passport you can just buy a visa at the border post, if you are driving there is always a big traffic jam.

    Or even Lecter, but you get my drift.
  8. No, that's Mads Mikkelsen, isn't it?
  9. No, no Hannibal Lecture - it's about the destruction of Carthage by Scipio Africanus. Riveting - and there's chopped liver, bean salad and a nice drop of chianti afterwards

  10. I cycled this 4/5 years ago in two 10 day stages: Travemünde to the Harz Mountains the first year and the Harz to the Dreiländereck behind Hof the second. I however am a slooow cyclist - I met several cyclists who did the whole thing in one go. Mind you they were half my age!

    I can thoroughly recommend this - it was a great experience. Incidentally I did also meet a guy who was walking it.

    These are the bibles for this route:
