    Cycling river Danube

    June 20 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    It rained all night, so we were not too motivated to get up early. Instead, we enjoyed a longer breakfast and left around 9:30am when it stopped raining. We then had another awesome day with tailwinds, so rolling along the Danube was really easy and enjoyable.
    In Deggendorf, I went grocery shopping. When I came out of the supermarket, there was a bad surprise: pouring rain and it didn't look like it was going to stop any time soon. Another 30-40km of cycling plus sleeping in a tent wasn't really an option anymore, so we checked out sleeping options in Deggendorf. Lucky, we found Oliver on the warmshowers website who replied immediately after I had sent him a message. He welcomed us in his a apartment and we cooked dinner together. So glad we had a roof and a view this night!

    Had a beautiful morning's cruise before a quick stop at Melk and a tour of Melk Abbey...a Benedictine Monestary perched on a mountain behind the town of Melk.

    After a 2 hour tour through the Abbey, we were back on board and spent the afternoon on the top deck basking in the the sunshine and watching the beaut little Austrian villages passing by.Read more

    September 30, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Arrived on the Austrian/German border at Passau. Did a walking tour of the city followed by a pipe organ concert at Passau Cathedral...the largest cathedral organ in the world.

    Luckily our ship was able to ride a "wave" on to our next destination whilst we were in Passau, and we caught a bus from Passau to our waiting ship. The water levels are extremely low, so luckily it looks as though we won't have to change ships.Read more

    Pilsen to Rosenheim

    May 10, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C

    Time to do some kilometres before it rains. However we did have a few showers going through a national park and forests. Took a long cut from the cafe in Zwiesel. Too busy to take photos.
    I do know why they drive on the right in Europe - so motorcycle riders can acknowledge each other with the left hand meaning the throttle is uneffected.Read more

    May 5, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 6 °C

    A lovely respite with Zuzana, Philipp and Boubou. Their home is fabulous, and Ian was suitably impressed by the high tech features. Including the “garden house” - a luxurious shelter for his bike. A trip to the beer festival, scenic views of Passau, “the town of three rivers” (interesting to see the confluence and mix of water colour), St Stephens Cathedral (“the Dome”), and a simply delicious lunch.Read more

    Bike tour along the River Inn

    August 21, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    After a wonderful morning walking tour through Passau, great lunch on the terrace we are off again on our next bike adventures: Germany to Austria ( & back). Beautiful ride along the River Inn, through the forest and over the bridge to Austria. A few challenging times but e-bikes gives you that extra boost to make it easier. Funny feeling to be biking and see your ship cruising without you! Dropped the bikes off and bussed to our next port. 2 days, back to back bike excursions were challenging but an excellent way to see so much.
    Dinner was perfect then evening drinks and off to bed, want to be well rested for Thursday: morning tour and afternoon microbreweries!!!🍺🍻🍺🍻🍺 Cheers!

    All aboard!!!

    December 27, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 3 °C

    Munich was awesome but ready to cruise on.... On the AmaLea for the next 7 days down the Danube to Budapest. Greeted with champagne and a rose from the captain then an Oktoberfest celebration with beer, pretzels & german dancers before dinner which was amazing; from salad or shrimp cake to raspberry sorbet. Little walk along the river before heading to bed.Read more

    The views while cruising.

    August 22, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    After getting back on the Danube we cruised into Nuremberg the next morning. But what we saw along the way; amazing sunset, castles, sheep, skinnie dippers ( sorry no pictures!) On board we were greeted with a German band who played for us during dinner. A few more locks and a sunny morning we arrived in Nuremberg.Read more

    Shopping and bike delay

    May 3, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Went to Austria this morning to fill up Philipp’s car with diesel (20c cheaper there).
    Toured the city, shops, power plant (50MW) and locks on the Danube, side by side.
    Then to the bike dealer (100km away) but the bike was not ready - found a clutch problem on their test ride so new clutch going in tomorrow morning after it arrives overnight.Read more
