Travelsonabike2 Germany Tuesday 15th-October-2019

Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in Germany on Tuesday, 15th-October-2019. Strasbourg, France to Speyer, Germany. 86 Miles. Nice early finish today, not! I had it in my head that I would stop early today, so come 4 o’clock. As I passed through Germershiem, I spotted a campsite, which, as it turned out, wasn’t a campsite at all!

Not a problem, as I wasn’t expecting to camp tonight anyway. I knew that there were some hotels in Germershiem I’ll just go and check into one of those!

Not a chance. They were all full, although I did have my doubts about some of them. I just don’t think they could be bothered!

Bloody Hotels

Anyway, the long and short of it all is that I ended up in Speyer another 10 miles down the road. Unfortunately, all the hotels here were also fully booked! But thanks to the two very nice girls at the reception of the last hotel I tried, they found me a room or rather an apartment!

Apparently, Tuesday and Wednesday are not very good for finding accommodation. All the hotels are booked up with business people, according to the owner of my apartment. I’ll have to bear that in mind tomorrow!

Seeing as I’ve got my own place tonight, I thought I’d cook, and went out and brought something very simple pizza and chips!

Good idea, not! I get back to the apartment, only to find there’s no oven! I’m currently trying to cook a pizza in a frying pan and oven chips in a saucepan on the hob!

All in all a rather stressful end to the day!

  1. One thing about the French – they’re not snobs. The world is full up. If only they’d stop copulating. Strasbourg looks some city. I’ll bet the air was blue in that apartment. I can now get your books on kindle for free he! he!
