My phone had an episode last night in which it did not work therefore I took the night off from blogging. Have I yet touted the benefits of buying a phone for $150 off of Amazon? I guess that is why they say “ya get what ya pay for”. 🙄
In our penultimate ride we journeyed from Bonn to Köln (aka kauhyoon aka Cologne) and today, our final leg, we rode to Düsseldorf (dussadawhf).
I slept in yesterday and then Mark made the mistake of letting me go to breakfast solo. It was the best breakfast eva so far on this trip and I ate one hundred croissants and pancakes and fruit salad, et cetera and we didn’t get on the road until 10:30ish. I don’t typically get this much physical activity at home and my appetite is basically insatiable. Who gains weight on a cycling trip??? This chick, that’s who. I’ve been taking some food photos and plan to make a dedicated post in a few days. The amount of pizza/pasta is a bit silly and you may think we actually went to some sort of knock off Italy but if you know me or Mark that shouldn’t surprise you.
Today we actually got going before 8 am and made it to Düsseldorf in the early afternoon. A large thunderstorm was on the radar so we had an extra incentive to make it here ASAP. Our dear Magellan/Gerard convinced his son and Düsseldorf resident David to gather our bicycles and Gerard will be storing them for us in Munich until our next Eurovelo adventure. ¡Muchos gracias, Gerard! Somos muy aprecianados para todo su ayuda.
Tomorrow we will take a train to Amsterdam where we will spend a few days exploring and will meet back up with Lisa and Mike.
We missed a turn and took a bit of an urban shortcut yesterday when we could have been riding along the Rhine. Good news is that we found this enormous wooden horse outside of what smelled like a farm. I guessed that reitsport means riding sport.
I am ~exhausted~. Also very excited to travel to our sixth and final country tomorrow via train. Yayyy Amsterdam! We may just have to rent some bicycles to have a small two wheel journey while we are there.
