along the Mosel

Despite the very nice room and a delicious breakfast, my bad mood was back (maybe I was sensing the bad weather already). I also had to do some shopping and it took some contemplating on which side of the Mosel I wanted to continue, so I started relatively late.

I was also a bit bored because the landscape was the same as the day before, still beautiful but not new ;-)

So, I cycled along and my friend the wind was back as usual from the front.


Mosel dam

The wind grew stronger and sometimes I wondered if it was just me when I cycled downhill and pedaled real hard and moved close to not at all. Luckily enough, nobody overtook me....

Around noon the wind was so strong that the last 8-9 km of the day lasted forever.

In Traben-Trarbach, I went / was blown directly to the tourist information and checked into the hotel, just before the rain started.


the ciclista has landed :-D

I chose the hotel mainly because it had a POOL. :-) After I unpacked, I made my way to check it out. The hotel was a bit aged and there were a lot of dead and stuffed animals (deer heads, a fox, ducks,...), so I didn't expect much of the pool but I was positively surprised: it was nice and clean - and almost empty :-)

So I swam for about an half hour before I went back to my room, changed and went into town for late lunch / early dinner.


Btw.: My App stopped working in the middle of the morning, so I drew the route by hand. That's why the parameter might be incorrect.
