Entering the Tatra MountainsJune 27, 2020 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C
For today, we had planned a shorter trip. This gave us some time to have breakfast with Ondrej and share some bike touring experiences as well as information about our cultures. In general, we missed these conversations in the Czech Republic due to a language barrier. Our Czech is basically non-existent, so when people addressed in a friendly away (probably) asking about our trip, we had to admit we don't understand anything. Unfortunately, they usually didn't speak English or German either.
Anyways, we hit the road after breakfast and started straight away with some climbing. The Eastern part of the Czech Republic is quite hilly and reminded us of the Bavarian lower Alps. The mountains are part of the Tatra region which belong to the Carpatian Mountains.
The second part of the route followed a river. It was steady, but really easy climbing, so we arrived at our campsite before 3pm already. This gave us some time to do laundry, relax and have a last beer.Read more
