The Plan

The Plan: Two months of unassisted cycling and camping through Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic and wherever else our legs may take us.

The Route: Starting in Brussels and flying out of Berlin are the only given at this point. We plan to cycle parts of the Flanders Cycle Route, Rhine River and the Danube River. We will also be using the EuroVelo and regional cycling routes.

Accommodation: WarmShowers website (like couchsurfing for cyclists). We are also planning on staying at campsites, backyards of friendly locals or in the wilderness.

Day 3: Mechelen to Waasmunster - 76km

Day 3: Mechelen to Waasmunster - 76km

Mechelen to Ghent was a long distance so we had planned to stop and camp somewhere along the way. The route signage was pretty good along the way til we hit construction and again, we lost our way. After a detour we found our way and celebrated with a sandwich and delicious Belgian beer for lunch.
Every Belgian beer has its own serving glass, Kwak is the strangest, but a bit of as gimmick because the beer isn't that special. 

As we pushed towards Ghent, the day grew late and we started searching for a campsite. We had to backtrack a bit, but a family on bikes literally led us to the closest campground in Waasmunster. We set up our tent and treated ourselves to some delicious steak with Belgian fries

I promise not all of these will be food pics!
