For some reason only half of the photos loaded. I will update the gallery when the wifi is better. Great ride from Krems to Tulln. Very woodsy and wildflowers were blooming along the trail.
Here are a few pics from Sunday’s ride. About 44 miles of wind, 13mph maybe with strong gusts, and hills. A few times I pedaled less going uphill than downhill.
There wasn’t much wifi in Linz so posting from Enns. Linz was great. Nice little place to stay with a flower garden and a beer garden. We didn’t spend much time there though. On arrival we found a beer and music festival about two blocks from our place. Spent a few hours there listening to American blues music done by a local band. Amazing talent. Blues Buddies. Met a couple brewers too. In the evening we went to a wine/jazz place, Maria’s. They didn’t have smoking which was great as most people here smoke. Walking back to our rooms there was another music fest. This time old school music. Again American classics. We stopped on a Cuban restaurant/bar for a snack of chili con carne and a beer. The food was great and another no smoking place.
This morning we had breakfast at a local bakery and stopped at a farm market in the plaza. We had a fairly short ride 15 or so miles to Mauthausen where the is a WW II concentration camp memorial. Very intense. From there we went to Enns for tonight’s stay. Our hotel rooms have separate bedrooms, very large shower, and bath. All for the cost of Red Roof.
Yesterday and today. Phone pics from wondering Praha. The first ad we saw was in the airport for a beer festival. We didn’t make it to the fest but it was a nice sign. There was an escalator at the underground exit that was the biggest ever. Today we toured the castle, took a tram ride through the non-tourist areas of Prague. And walked about 20 miles altogether. Tomorrow we take a train to Passau.
