Trip Log

Notes Actions
Last night, Gabi left with a new friend she met during her swim on the Donau. She was going to return around 9AM today, but, because of the heat, Laura, Brent and I decided that we needed to make an earlier start and get as much riding as possible done before the day gets too hot. Gabi's not an early starter, so we've been leaving quite late each day. We can't do that anymore, though, if we are going to end up heat stroked as a result. Anyway, it worked out fine because we cycled to Passau and got here by 10:30 or 11:00 and Gabi followed later by train. She is staying at her niece's place tonight and we are at Zeltplatz on der Ilz. Tomorrow we catch a boat to Linz - we make 100km distance on our "rest day", and get to see some scenery. Yay!
It's the end of an era. That's right... my little folding spoon from Iceland broke today. It made it a little over three months. I was hoping to do the whole six-month trip with it, but alas, it is now done.
A highlight for today was the Cathedral of St. Stephan in Passau. Laura had read a description of it and decided that she had to see it. It is completely amazing! I'm so glad we got to go there, and that we had an early enough start today to actually get there and enjoy it.
