Leaving Melay
Day 7 we drive from Melay to Barweiler in the Eifel, the total ride is 402 km, we drive through the Vosges, Luxembourg and the Eifel.
A beautiful ride with many beautiful roads, varied landscapes and nice villages and towns along the way to stop for a short or long break.

After a very well cared for breakfast at B&B La Maison de Notaire, we say goodbye to Ron and Astrid and head for Luxembourg.
The first stop is planned at RP3 where you can enjoy a delicious cup of coffee, sandwich or lunch at a bakery.
The second stop is planned in Luxembourg for refueling, the gasoline is a lot cheaper here than in Germany and France.
We drive further through beautiful Luxembourg, where we also take a piece of Mullerthal (RP14). The rest we drive the next day (route 8), towards the Eifel.

The end point is Bed & Breakfast Red House on the Hill, where we are warmly welcomed by the Dutch operators and our group of friends who join us for the rest of the trip.
Red House on the Hill is aimed at motorcyclists, the bar and restaurant are tastefully decorated. The guests are well taken care of and in the evening it is nice to relax with a good meal, nice glass of beer, wine or something else with great music (blues rock). The view from the porch and terrace is spectacularly beautiful.

This route deserves 5 stars, because of the beautiful rolling environment through which the mostly well-paved roads wind through, you occasionally pass a stream or river and many nice villages along the way.

About this region
Saarland (, also US: , German: [ˈzaːɐ̯lant] (listen); French: Sarre [saʁ]) is a state of Germany in the west of the country. With an area of 2,570 km2 (990 sq mi) and population of 995,600 in 2015, it is the smallest German state in both area and population apart from the city-states of Berlin, Bremen and Hamburg. Saarbrücken is the state capital and largest city; other cities include Neunkirchen and Saarlouis. Saarland is mainly surrounded by the department of Moselle in France to the west and south and the neighboring state of Rhineland-Palatinate in Germany to the north and east; it also shares a small border approximately 5 miles long with the canton of Remich in Luxembourg to the northwest. Saarland was established in 1920 after World War I as the Territory of the Saar Basin, occupied and governed by France under a League of Nations mandate. The heavily industrialized region was economically valuable, due to the wealth of its coal deposits and location on the border between France and Germany. Saarland was returned to Nazi Germany in the 1935 Saar status referendum. Following World War II, the French military administration in Allied-occupied Germany organized the territory as the Saar Protectorate from 1947. After the 1955 Saar Statute referendum, it joined the Federal Republic of Germany as a state on 1 January 1957. Saarland used its own currency, the Saar franc, and postage stamps issued specially for the territory until 1959.
