We got on the road just before 8:30 this morning from Strasbourg toward Mothern, France. I was a little disappointed because the first hour and half were rather lackluster. We were in dedicated bike lanes on the side of busy roads and there wasn’t anything too exciting to see. Eventually we made it closer to the Rhine and enjoyed a leisurely ride on quiet roads.
We are staying at a small hotel that has “1748” written on the front which suggests that is the year the original structure was built. There was literally no one here when we arrived and we found a piece of paper with a bunch of keys to let ourselves in. Mothern is a very cute, colorful and quiet town from what I can tell. It is the last town in France on the Rhine before we head back in to Germany.
This is crazy but I’m not even having any wine or beer tonight because there is no market close by and we didn’t have dinner at the hotel restaurant. Instead we were surprised by the appearance of a BURGER BUS!! And they even had a vegetarian burger!! A great end to the day 😜😀🍔
Au revoir my friends! Back to Germany tomorrow to Spyre or Mainz, depending on rain and trains. If we go to Main, I’m hoping we get there in time and with enough energy to check out the Gutenberg Museum honoring the inventor of the printing press.
