Itinerary

01

Day 1: London

Welcome to the much coveted capital of the United Kingdom. The next few days will be spent slinking through the streets of Soho & purring through boutiques in Shoreditch. By afternoon we’ll get acquainted with the rest of the Contiki folk & hear the finer details of the 12-days ahead. We’ll then be free to kick on & explore London’s moonlight hours, or we can conserve our energy for tomorrow’s day of pedalling.

02

Day 2: London

Taking to two wheels, we’ll explore London’s backstreets by pushbike. Making stops when hydration calls, we’ll uncover cosy cafes & mosey off the well-ridden path. By night we could cruise to a moonlight cinema or visit the Magic Roundabout bars in Old Street.

03

Day 3: London

Today you can choose to seek out the ever illusive ‘Banksy’, getting the lowdown on London’s most ambiguous street art. Your free time could be spent sifting through treasures in the antique stores of Notting Hill or icon hopping from one landmark to another. Then our final night in London is ahead of us, and it’s brimming with endless possibility & craft beer.

04

Day 4: London to Paris

We’ll arrive in the ever chic capital & waste no time settling into the Parisian grind. The intro will start by soaring 210-metres above the ground in Montparnasse Tower, where the incredible expanses of Paris can truly be taken in. By night we could sip cocktails in SoPi – that’s ‘South Pigalle’ if you’re looking for coordinates.

05

Day 5: Paris

Flip through some French phrases to get yourself a coffee & croissant; you’re going to enjoy having a bit of lingo on hand if you choose to cosy down to a local dinner later this evening. After breakfast you may want to stroll the Canal Saint-Martin and shop (or dream) on rue Beaurepaire.

06

Day 6: Paris

Our final day in Paris calls for ultimate French indulgence, most recommended in the form of a Gastronomy Tour. After eating our bodyweight in éclairs, brioches & macarons, you could carry on the eating theme with a picnic of fromage & vino in Montmartre.

07

Day 7: Paris to Amsterdam

With Paris now taking up a sizable pocket of our hearts, we’ll move upstream in search of the Netherlands unconventional capital. Fancy some fun facts to spruce up our ride in? We’ll be coasting past Belgium’s ancient diamond trading city, the portside city of pretty Antwerp. Arriving in Amsterdam we’ll be greeted by all the expected trademarks, & begin scurrying past them to find the soul of the city.

08

Day 8: Amsterdam

Today we’ll tackle Amsterdam in a most acceptable fashion, grabbing pushbikes & cycling through the city’s picture perfect canals. Although we’re in one of Europe’s most alternative cities, viewing tulip gardens & decedent cheese samplings will not be out of the question.

09

Day 9: Amsterdam

Today we suggest getting your scream on at the Tower Swing, then easing the jitters with a curtsey to the cocktail skills at House of Bols. The Van Gogh Museum or Albert Cyup Market are also worth a visit, & by night we could swing to the converted theatre club of De Soos (Chicago Social Club).

10

Day 10: Amsterdam to Berlin

Feeling sufficiently enamoured by the multidimensional city of Amsterdam, we’ll gather up our worldly possessions & hit the road. With a German club hub & culture king on our agenda, you may want to send out a few zzz’s during the journey. With more museums than rainy days per year, Berlin is a place worth knowing about.

11

Day 11: Berlin

Today we can cruise Berlin the vintage way, taking a tour in the official cars of the DDR. When hunger strikes, the carnivores could spend some time differentiating bockwurst from kinderwurst from fleischwurst. Meanwhile the more vegan inclined could sample a jackfruit burger or cashew bolognese at the solar powered organic hotel of Amaranth.

12

Day 12: Berlin

If yesterday’s independent food roamings whet the appetite for something more substantial, then todays offer of a progressive food tour should provide ample satisfaction. Later you could let kilos settle by sipping tea in a palace at the Tajik Tearoom, or by walking the abandoned building of Museumswohnung museum where you can see remnants of the communist era.

13

Day 13: End Berlin

If you’ve got any last minute business to take care of you could drop by Betahaus co-working space, where an enviable collection of city start-ups can be found. If you fancy yourself a bit of a travel blogging kid, you can find your kind at the blog specific co-working haunt of blogfabrik. Today officially marks the end of our time together, but in the spirit of travel you’ll leave feeling the world is your oyster.
