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 4: Waasmunster to Ghent - 38km

Before we left, I had sent out a few last minute emails on WarmShowers to try and find a place to stay. Trien was the only one who could host us that night and herself had just returned from a 6 month cycle tour of S. America with her boyfriend, Dieter. We got a case of the hungries as we neared Ghent and Elizabeth spotted a deli in a small town as we rolled through. 8 euros later, we had a nice little picnic at the bar with broodjes, Belgian sandwiches with all the fixings and olives oh and with the beers our lunch was 10€.

Trien kindly let us make ourselves at home and we did so by throwing together our first home cooked meal in a while.
