Hi all. My girlfriend and I are shipping our motorcycle to London and picking it up on July 1st, and are then spending 5 weeks riding through Belgium, Germany, Austria, N. Italy, Switzerland, and finally ending up seeing a Tour de France stage and then spending a few days in Provence.
Here's my dilemma- I hate booking accommodation ahead of time on a trip like this. We like having the flexibility to wing-it, and choose a day or two in advance what towns/routes to visit, and what to book.
But... July is going to be insanely busy in these parts.
Is it ill-advised to think we'll be able to find lodging in this part of Europe with only a day or two notice? Any suggestions?
We can go either way- I can book the whole trip in advance if necessary, but would really like a little more flexibility if possible.
