“It Means Love In Russian”

June 26 - Faxe Ladeplads to Koge Cuckoo…cuckoo…cuckoo..cuckoo… No clock needed. I had the real thing. Fun fact, cuckoos do actually say cuckoo. Not an approximation of that sound, it is not onomatopoeia, they very distinctly and very clearly say, cuckoo!  No point lying around being sent slowly cuckoo myself with the chorus outside, so...

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 →

Aaaaaand We’re Back

May 20 - Au an der Donau to Linz Aaaaaand we’re back. After a short interlude of three days with fine weather, normal programming has been resumed. It rained. Again.  I got in a short, quick run this morning back along the Danube path. What an absolutely top spot to run. Having a path to... Continue Reading →

Allo, Allo

May 18 - Krems to Melk “Hallo" is the one German word I feel confident saying, since it’s a direct translation of “Hello” and virtually identical so it rolls off the tongue with ease. So confident am I in the use of this one word, that I was reciting it with abandon today. We packed... Continue Reading →

Return To The Nylon Palace

May 17 - Tulln to Krems Blue sky! There’s actually blue sky! What a start to the day. I headed out for an early morning run and the sky was clear and there was blue over there between the clouds and it was looking like being a ripper day. I took a 10K trot along... Continue Reading →

Palace Perambulations

May 15 - Vienna The day dawned very cold and drizzly and I once again took a trot around the Augarten, for a quick, short early morning run, passing some familiar faces from yesterday and greeting some new ones. A chilly but top start to the day. The weather decided to crack up even further... Continue Reading →

Well, That Was Better

May 14 - Vienna What a difference some stories make. We managed to do a walking tour today and some information and guided roaming turned yesterday’s itsty-bitsy day into something far more enjoyable. The day was already off to a good start because I got out for a run. Leaving Steve to his slumber once... Continue Reading →

Day Trippers

May 3 - Bled After a lovely sunny, warm day yesterday with a temperature of about 21C, today became cold, raining and 12C. Just like that. We seem to be on roughly a 2:3 cycle. We have two days of fine weather followed by three days of rain. Today is the first of the three... Continue Reading →

Feelin’ Some Magic

May 1 - Trieste l like Trieste. Trieste is a nice city. I’m feelin’ some Italian magic! The sun shone today in a cloudless sky and it was perfect for a gentle roam through the streets and piazzas of Trieste. We strolled across the grand Piazza Unita d’Italia that we had ridden past on our... Continue Reading →
