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 21: Mainz to Munich - via train

"Hey baby, I figured out a way to get to Munich that only takes two more hours" is a lot easier to hear when you're traveling by train instead of bicycle. Traveling by rail to Munich is our way of gaining the time that we will need to take on the Alps. Miles figured  out a genius way to save us 100 euros by taking only regional trains, four of them to be exact. It's basically took our entire day and we arrived in Munich late in the evening and got possibly the last room in a hostel near the station. Everything seems to have been booked due to the X-Games this weekend. The price, quality and anonymity of the hostel made us appreciate even more the wonderful Warm Showers hosts we have had as well as the unassuming and easygoing nights camping. However,the  Augustiner beer garden we were directed to for a late night meal was a perfect welcome to Munich.
