The July issue of Becket News is finally here, with lots of news and views. You can read it online or download it here.
It is now time to sign up for the long-awaited August walk on Saturday 11 August! This is an outing to the coastal area round Kiel, brilliantly organized by Lee Shaw and offering plenty of walking, pleasant breaks and even the possibility of a ferry ride on the Kieler Förde.
MEETING POINT: Hamburg Hauptbahnhof in front of the Deutsche Bahn Reise Zentrum.
TIME: 9:10 to allow time to get economical group travel tickets
DEPART HAMBURG: 9:43 on the RE70
ARRIVE KIEL HAUPTBAHNHOF: 10:55 Here the Wanderers meet Lee and take a bus to Strande where the walk begins. In case of delays on the day, Lee can be contacted on his mobile phone: 0157 84083232.
PLEASE BRING: Food and drink for the journey to Kiel and something for lunch if you don’t want to buy refreshments on the walk. Additional bus and ferry fares may come to an estimated 8 Euro.
RETURN HAMBURG: 2 trains leave Kiel for Hamburg every hour , but what time the group gets back to Kiel Station depends on the walking pace, the length of the breaks and the choice of alternative routes, but probably not before evening. There is so much to see and enjoy and up to three hours good walking, so it is definitely worth the time invested!
Please phone Nicki Schiller (04104 6999266 or 0176 30393063) if you would like more details of the walk, and let her know by Friday 3. August, if you plan to come, so that she and Lee can coordinate the arrangements (nicki.schiller at gmx.de).
