After a few days in Warsaw, which I spent mostly working, I’m heading towards Lithuania. Originally, I wanted to go from Poland via the Haff and Kaliningrad. Since neither the Corona situation nor the political situation in Belarus are stable in summer 2020, I decide against it.
When I leave Bratislava, it is quite hot. I decide against a short detour at the castle in Devin and drive directly along the Danube towards Budapest. The cycle track is well developed and serves many city dwellers as a local recreation area. I meet many other cyclists and inline skaters. In the floodplain landscape around the big river, there are numerous resting places and even a bathing lake.
After the day of the Cargo Ride, I left Vienna to spend the sunny weekend in nature. My destination was Klosterneuburg, a small town with a beautiful old monastery, which is also Austria’s oldest winery. The local campsite is situated between the city and the danube floodplains, so I had a good location and also from the tent the perfect view into the green.
After my sightseeing tour in Dresden, I was about to jump into the next big European city: Prague. Originally, I wanted to cross the German-Czech border by bike. But I didn’t know if this would be possible in Corona times. Therefore, I decided to take the train. Loading the bike with luggage was unfortunately not as easy as before in the regional trains. But on the trip, I was compensated with well functioning free Wi-Fi and a breathtaking view.
