It’s The People

May 31 - Donauwörth to Ulm What makes travel so memorable? What are the moments that become highlights and memories of gold? Is it the famous places? Is it the iconic sites and scenes? Well, those things are all great and important but what makes travel so special…it’s the people. It’s the people.  We put... Continue Reading →

What’s That I See? A Hill Forsooth!

May 30 - Ingolstadt to Donauwörth Just to make sure we weren't getting too soft with all this river riding, the route decided to throw in some ups today and they were the huffing, stopping for breathers sort of ups. For a Danube River Cycle Route, we haven’t been seeing much of the river since... Continue Reading →

Roaming and Remembrance

May 29 - Ingolstadt to Munich via Dachau We took the train today. Without the bikes. We had a plan. We rode to Ingolstadt yesterday with the plan to stay two nights so we could implement our plan.  We’re close to Munich but not close enough for a detour on the bikes, that would have...

Pedalling Peacefully Through Puddles

May 28 - Bad Goggin to Ingolstadt patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-patter-... Try sleeping through that, when the only thing between you and the downpour outside is a thin layer of nylon. Not going to happen. No sleep was had thanks to the drumbeat of rain. The rain came down all night and by the morning, some of that... Continue Reading →

Germany’s Best

May 27 - Regensburg to Bad Gogging Well, today’s ride was the best we’ve had in Germany so far. It had great paths, great experiences, great weather and it scored top marks for Germany. We rode back through the centre of Regensburg again this morning to collect some supplies for the road and then we... Continue Reading →

An Easier Day

May 25 - Deggendorf to Straubing After the hiccups of yesterday, today was a whole lot easier and we took it easy - a shorter ride and taking our time along the way to stop and look at things, visit some towns and not a detour to be seen. I got the day off to... Continue Reading →

Roadblocks And Detours

May 24 - Passau to Deggendorf Anyone would think we were in a leg of The Amazing Race, heading into the pit stop, the number of roadblocks and detours we had today. We planned to ride to Deggendorf, where we had a campsite waiting for us. The sun shone, the wind was light, it was... Continue Reading →

Pottering In Passau

May 23 - Passau What a nice relaxing day, pottering about, roaming and exploring, getting some jobs done and no hurry at all. But, first things first…the rain stopped! The day started grey and then…and then…it turned blue. BLUE! The sky can actually turn that colour again. Amazing! It turned into a beautiful warm day... Continue Reading →

Are We In Germany?

May 22 - Aschach an der Donau to Passau As we readied ourselves to ride away from the Renaissance castle, we considered our layering options. What should we wear. We threw caution to the wind, donned a veil of optimism and rode off without wearing our coats. The sky was grey and there was definitely... Continue Reading →
