A longer blog about our winter in Bavaria is coming in the next few weeks, but for now I thought I would write a quick update on where we are. I need to find a new way of doing these blogs that is less onerous on me whilst travelling. So here is the first….
We’re now cycling across Germany following the Main, Rhein and Mosel rivers towards Luxembourg. We had a surreal experience in Aschaffenburg yesterday when riding along the towpath to see the Schloss (castle) we came across a sign saying ‘Perth Inch’. Apparently our home city is twinned with Aschaffenburg!
The weather is cool and damp, we got very wet a couple of days ago when it rained all afternoon. Drying out in the tent proved a little challenging. We had to sleep with our wet clothes in the sleeping bags to dry them out ready to put on the next morning!
Tonight we are staying with a delightful couple through Warmshowers just to the west of Frankfurt.
