    Day 68. Bodensee, Switzerland to Austria

    October 11, 2019 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    We stayed at Jugendherberge youth hostel with inclusive breakfast and skrim curtains. We didn't know what time breakfast was but the curtains got us up at first light. It is an amazing bio (eco) friendly hostel run by a young Swiss couple. They work 8 months of the year and close over winter as they can’t afford the heating. Then they have a four month skiing break. The guy spent 18 months in Australia and NZ. He is a chef and he always has vegemite as a breakfast option. The breakfast was the best with natural and goodness options of joghurts, fruit, cereals, mueslis, fresh baked bread, meats, cheeses, juices, coffee, tea and fresh herbal teas. Susie loved it. Ron is still looking for eggs.
    So at 9am we were on the road. Mr Google said it was only 48km to Lindau Island: so 3 hours max. We soon learnt that the cycle way and the road way were hardly acquainted.
    It took 7 hours. From 9am until 4pm with only a short stop for coffee about 2m over the Austrian border in Gaißau and soup in Berenz. Ah, the relief of Austria prices instead of Swiss. (A glass of orange juice in Switzerland was $15).

    The first 2 hours were lovely. Cruising along the railway line with only minor deviations and marvelling at the beauty of Arbon.

    Day 68a. Arbon & Steinach

    October 11, 2019 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    The day started cold and misty but clear.
    In Arbon we followed the knitting trail along the esplanade where light poles and benches were decorated with knitted covers.
    Arbon is a historic town and a municipality and district capital of the district of Arbon in the canton of Thurgau in Switzerland. Arbon is located on the southern shore of Lake Constance, on a railway line between Konstanz/Romanshorn and Rorschach/Chur, or St. Gallen.Read more

    Im Rutsch 'durch die Schweiz'

    October 10, 2019 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Für heute wird uns etwas besseres Wetter vorhergesagt. Zum Glück ist alles getrocknet und wir können uns rüsten👍
    Durch die CH geht es in Seenähe fast immer entlang der Eisenbahnstrecke. Der Wind kommt heute deutlich von vorne, da macht sich ein E-Bike echt bezahlt. Die ca.50Km der Streckenbeschreibung summieren sich dann auf ca.60Km.
    Aber wir kommen in Konstanz an und, statt noch ein Lokal zum Essen zu suchen, schoppen Uta und ich bei Kaufland und essen dann fast alles bei Meseck‘s im Zimmer auf. Zur Verdauung gibt es in Erinnerung an die Mauerradwegtour vor nicht ganz 1 Jahr die Kümmerlingmedizin.
