... there he was. The last day of our bike ride started like on all other days with bright sunshine and blue sky. The night had been pretty cold. It was the first time I dont wear a t-shirt to sleep at night. Well, yes, we are also a bit northern 😀We started as usual after a hearty breakfast with a dry tent. I mention that only because we had to wet the tent almost every day last year. What a summer 🌞
... it thundered. ... it thundered again. I opened my eyes and wondered if it was in my dream and outside the tent. So I listened again and looked out of the tent at the same time. As it thundered again and a look out of the tent told me that probably something brewed there. I took the smartphone with rain radar to help and saw that actually a storm front pulled in our direction.It's funny when you only see sun and blue skies for days. Then you are even more surprised. So we organized around. First, dismantle and pack the bikes and then have breakfast. Said done ... then again through the climbing park ... 500 crowns will eventually be exploited ... and then it started.
The night was clear and cold for the previous conditions. It was the first time I woke up at night and I was cold. My summer sleeping bag had to be preserved. We did not have any tropical temperatures anymore ... they had actually dropped 19 degrees here in the hills of Moen. But it was still bearable 😎We started before I had paid the most expensive campground of my life at the time. A total of 375 kroner was due, which is about 50 euros. I really did not want to buy the campsite .... But we had pool and playgrounds and even a green lawn ... by the way the only one on our whole bike ride. But it just was not worth it 😕
Suffering and joy often hang together ... even when cycling. We were able to experience this firsthand today.Yesterday still headwind and end of the world ... today fantastic weather, fantastic bike route and even tailwind. Things can change so fast.
... the South Seas also have their dark side. We experienced it close up today and I can say that this can bring you to madness. But everything from the beginning ...We had a quiet night ... of course we were looking for the eclipse, or father was running around looking for the moon in all available places ... but we did not find it. It was not until the children went to bed around 10:30 pm that he suddenly appeared on the horizon, but completely inconspicuous ... was not really worth it.
Second day and the Danish dream continues. At least as far as the weather was concerned we could say that at breakfast. It greeted us with a blue sky and a pleasant 20 degrees. What more do you want. We got up earlier today because we have to get our ferry to Aero at 14:20. There are only 3 crossings and since we had 17 kilometers left on Aero, 19:30 would have been too late for us.
With the 🚲 through the Danish South Sea 🇩🇰 - Day 1There he was. He came secretly. Yesterday still working and today already forgetting all arrived on vacation.But everything from the beginning. Our arrival with the Deutsche Bahn was .... well ... as always exciting. It started planned from Osnabrück and we arrived even planned in Hamburg. As far as the good. Instead of on track 12 we arrived on track 14. Such a Schmarn, because we could get on the opposite track again. Now we had to use one of two elevators with the other 100 people felt. Here was ... Please allow wheelchair users and Kinder car. We like to do that, but the whole of Hamburg seemed to consist of wheelchair users and prams. Where did they all come from ???
Fahrradfahren bedeutet für mich als Erstes Freiheit und geniessen. Fremde Landschaften, Gegenden oder auch Länder kennenzulernen begeistert mich immer wieder. Für mich ist das Fahrrad zum Ersatz für das Auto geworden. Ich verwende es für den Weg zur Arbeit, als ADFC-Tourenleiter, für alle Wege in der Freizeit und natürlich für den Urlaub. Meinen beiden Töchtern habe ich das Fahrrad-Gen wohl weiter vererbt, da sie mich auf meinen Touren begleiten. So haben wir bereits weite Strecken in Europa per Fahrrad entdeckt. Aber ... es bleibt noch so viel zu entdecken."Reisen macht einen bescheiden. man erkennt, welch kleinen Platz man in der Welt besetzt"
