Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in Germany on Friday, 18th-October-2019. Andernach to Lorick. 73 Miles. What a delightful hotel last night, run by Peter and Brigitte. It made a nice change not to be overcharged, as I seem to have been the past few nights! They even insisted on me taking some food from breakfast to have as a packed lunch!
I’ve now left the vineyards and castles. The landscape has become a lot flatter and much more industrialised!
I got caught in a heavy squally shower, just as I was coming into Cologne! That delayed me for a good hour, waiting for it to pass. There was no need to try and ride in it. The rain was torrential, and the wind was just too strong!
I got pretty cold after getting wet. And it took quite a long time before I warmed up again.
Playing The Tourist?
I did have intentions of looking around a couple of the cities I passed through, Bonn and Cologne.
Bonn, I couldn’t be bothered, and then after getting wet going into Cologne, I certainly wasn’t going to hang around!
I ended up camping tonight, which came as a surprise! I had intended stopping the night in Dusseldorf. But once again, after arriving there, I decided not to stop and pushed on! But low and behold, a few miles down the road, I found this campsite!
