Right! I have spent today sorting travel times and booking hotels and we have it all set up. We spend one night in Dresden, on the middle Saturday, and then head off to Magdeburg, where we have booked four nights. We plan to spend one day looking round Magdeburg, one going to Hannover, and one going to Quedlinburg. Then we head up north to Stralsund, where we spend two nights. On the Saturday we head south to Lübeck, and then over to Hamburg - not that we'll have much chance to do more than have dinner there. At midnight, we get a sleeper train - I've booked us a deluxe sleeper as the economy was no cheaper, and I don't fancy couchettes with strangers, thank you. I'd rather pay the extra for privacy - to Utrecht, and from there we spend our last night in Antwerp. And then on the Monday our "Any Belgian Station" ticket will take us to Brussels and back home! It should be a great fortnight. I will keep a journal on here, but as I don't think I'm taking my netbook, only my tablet, I won't be able to upload photos, but will make up for that on Facebook when we get back!
