  • Day10

    And then we had to adapt again

    August 29, 2017 in France

    Major change of plans today – initially we had been slotted in to moor somewhere at midnight and then disembark at the Ifferin Lock at 9am, however we awoke to the news that our overnight mooring had been taken by an abandoned boat and that when we arrived at the Lock the captain had the lock master threat to call the police if we tried to disembark. There was, apparently, no alternative but to sail on to Strasbourg. Essentially this would mean a whole morning on the boat, lunch on board and then the afternoon to explore the city by bike or by foot but no real riding – this was really rather disappointing (although I don’t think Kirstin minded at all). A few of the Ghostriders hatched a “lets ride into the city and around the island and see stuff” plan with some aiming to return to the boat for dinner and others planning to eat in the city. I opted for the latter with the additional intention of going back into the city (by tram) to watch the nightly light show at the Cathedral. Thus, we sailed up the river, including passage through 2 large and one small Lock (the latter built in the Napoleonic period) which was fascinating. Lunch was a bizarre mix of potato and sausage soup, spring rolls, noodle salad and fruit (I ate some spring rolls, fruit and my rolls from breakfast – the rest was pretty foul). I know the crew are doing their best and the situation is not their fault but really it isn’t very good! I am not impressed!!!Read more

    First day on my way

    Nach 199 km auf teilweise unglaublich schönen Radrouten habe ich jetzt wohl über 4000kcal beim Abendessen "verarbeitet"! 😉
