Fellow M3post Members, Please Help me

Hi,

Long story short, I'm going to be visiting UK for the first time ever in my life because my girlfriend is currently studying @London. I really want to travel to Germany to visit the famous Nurburgring. My question is, what are some of my options.

A quick google search give me these results

by Train: http://www.seat61.com/Germany.htm

by Driving: http://nurburgring.org.uk/directions/index.php

There's many circumstances to overcome via either route. Please chime in and provide me some opinions. Much appreciate your help!

yeah...
thinking o fit though, car rentals (at least in France) are ridiculously high (40-60 eur a day for a regular car), highways in France are tolled, and gas is close to 1.60 Eur / L right now... so it gets expensive...

how much does flight usually cost during midweek? I got linked into edreams.com, is that a good place to book flight tickets in EU?

Well just as a rough I did a search on Lastminute.com (you could try Expedia.co.uk) for departing Tuesday 13 March and returning Thursday 15 March and it came up with £67.68 return incl tax. The search result was for EasyJet budget airlines so could try their site directly.
