Donau continued

Halfway down the German stretch of the Danube/ Deutsch Donau, 300km down the Danube and now over 1500km into the journey, we're still very much enjoying daily life on the bikes.

The weather took a turn for the worse over the last week and it made us realise how big a part good weather plays in this cycling life.... when the sun shines, it's glorious, when it's cold and raining it can be miserable! As September draws to a close, we'd better start getting used to the latter. But just as quickly as dark clouds loomed, they dispersed and it seems that we're in for another summery spell, at least for the next week or so.

Since its source, irrespective of rain or sunshine, the Danube has brought us through some stunning countryside and beautiful towns and villages.

We're currently in a lovely town called Donauworth, unfortunately missing Oktoberfest in not too distant Munich, but endeavouring to enjoy the local beer nonetheless! Despite the draw of local ale, we're pressing on, as we're meeting family in Vienna, 600km or so downstream, at the end of the month.
