What a delightful hotel last night, run by Peter and Brigitte, it made a nice change not to be over charged, 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.
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’ve ended up camping tonight, which came as a surprise! I had intended stopping the night in Dussledorf, 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!
