Run2Europe2016 Dunkirk to Losheim, Germany

First task the teams faced involved finding a car dealership and complete a few tasks there,Team Bravo headed to Bruges, Belgium and found a BMW dealership who were willing to play along. Steve from team Bravo found himself in a brand new M3 and revving the bejesus out of it (a similar fate befell a Mercedes in a German dealership.

BMW technicians came out to see the circus

The route to the first hotel took the teams through Luxembourg via the capital on through to Germany.


The first Hotel The Hochwalder Wohlfuhlhtel was a welcome place to unwind after the first days travelling, set next to a large lake and a popular place for day trippers....like us...sort of.
Rooms were great and food and beer excellent!!!
Maybe spent too much time unwinding (see pics below).
