Strausberg a few miles north east of Berlin is an excellent choice if visiting the city. €11 landing fee and €7.50 for overnight parking with a train just outside the airfield, it is around 45 minutes to the city centre. After a couple of nights sleeping in a tent it was time for a luxury hotel. We arrived on the day of Germanys first world cup match which was on a large screen, well five screens to be precise, at Brandenburg Gate, much beer was available and consumed. The following day we filled up (fuel at €2.53 per litre) and set off for Bremen to clear immigration. Now Germany has a lot of wind turbines so as the cloud base started to fall and the rain intensified it was time for some fresh ideas.
