04.09.2019 Meeting other travellers. We did not see a lot of other touring cyclists on our way from Germany to Prague and Vienna, but this changed radically once we started pedalling down the Danube. The comfortable and pretty cycling paths along the river attract many people of all nationalities and ages, and so now we often find ourselves engaged in lively conversations about cycling and camping experiences along the Danube and places beyond. In Komarno we got to know another German, Iris, who is cycling Europe with her dog Zuri and blogging about it on When Zuri is tired of running alongside the bicycle, she can travel in her comfy bike trailer. In the same place, another lady from Germany, an elderly camper, let us in on the joys and sorrows of her age and gave us, much to Addy's delight, a bag full of smoked sausages from her son's production. And since our stay in Prague, we have been receiving photos and updates from Christin, another solo cyclist from Germany, who is spending most of her sabbatical on a bike trip. She told us that 'nobody tells you what your body is capable of and how far you are actually able to cycle, until you get up and just do it.' Last night we reached Hungary and took a ferry across the Danube. This was when we met Robert, a Romanian with Hungarian roots, who is doing a longer trip with his road bike. We camped together, shared a meal, and he taught us a few Hungarian words. Warm thoughts and save travels to all our fellow cyclists out there. We are looking forward to reaching Budapest tonight. #scoutbound #slovakia #bratislava #esztergom #hungary #communism #donau #danube #czechrepublic #czech #austria #bohemia #warmshowers #europe #tour #balkan #scouts #dpsg #cycling #bike #velo #camping #biketouring #cyclinglife #cyclinglover #touringlife #adventure #lessborderslessvisa
