Talspere Bautzen, GermanyJuly 19, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 21 °C
We've crossed the border into Germany! We're staying in a large, rural car park a short walk away from Bautzen Reservoir. As previously mentioned, our journey from Lithuania to the UK is pretty much the reverse of the journey from the UK to Lithuania. It'll therefore be no surprise that we are revisiting some places. Back in May it was a cooler and our overnight spot was a secluded car park a bit further round the shore, but it was the same reservoir!
We stopped in at a Polish rest area just off the motorway for lunch and made use of their free filling and emptying point. We'd got used to coping without them in Lithuania, but really appreciate these dedicated facilities now they are available.
The day was hot again; we are heading for another heatwave and it seems the UK is too. Will went straight to the water to cool off, revisiting later with Vicky in tow. Unlike the stony shore at the other car park, this was a lovely sandy beach. The water was clear enough to see the shoal of small, mud coloured fish taking an interest in our toes. We stood stock still and even got a few nibbles; who needs commercial fish pedicures?!Read more
