Herlish wilkommen aus Deutchland

I learnt how to make blog posts on my phone! Also, riding small roads in rural Germany brings back some long forgotten german, this happens every summer… I keep thinking that one day I’d like to learn this language properly. I wish I brought my dictionary, the german word for toilett keeps eluding me and I’m not sure about the spelling in the title of the post.


Sleep was scarse on the ferry, I didn’t book a cabin so that was expected. Riding in Germany had its ups and downs, like having to pay tunnel toll twice for the same tunnel, without wanting to go there to begin with… compensated by finding a Louise store in Hamburg, by accident and buying new boots (I was in desperate need thereof) and having a nap by this lake. Extra feel-good points for the black cat.


Last night I stayed in a campsite by Elbe and could enjoy a riverside run. Tonight I’m staying by another river, can’t remember the name of it. No run either, arrived a bit late. Had to ride by the map the whole afternoon since the battery was low on my phone. It worked fine but I couldn’t find those groovy petit roads that tomtom offers, and I got lost in Osnabrück because of road construction. I was still able to find my way, and find this campsite so I’m pretty pleased.
Tomorrow I’ll be riding the last leg of the Europe bit and meet Christoper in Brugge. I’m buying electricity tonight so I can use the gps tomorrow.
