A rainy day in Tyrol

image

Starting of from my small pension after a great breakfast I was really happy that it was just cloudy and not raining.

Coming down to steep street I’ve been pulling up yesterday I was surprised I’ve managed it to cycle that road up yesterday.

Now back in the Innradweg the first 45 km were fine – just cold and clouds but no rain. The first shower was just short so I had lunch.

But the next rain wasn’t just a shower – it hold on the rest of the day.

So cycling in the area of ‘Karwendel’ was very impressive as there is a lot of history and natural beauty – if it’s not raining ­čśë

So finally I reached my second place to stay – the youthhostel of Innsbruck.
Not very new but okay – and I got to know a guy from Denmark who intends to be a teacher in two years time.
Now he is hitchhiking through Europe, having walked already the camino to Santiago di Compostela and enjoys the school holidays.

So this day ends in a nice Pizzeria next to the hostel – and I hope the God of weather is a little bit more friendly tomorrow.

Part One: From Bavaria to Bologne

Wow – in a weeks time I┬┤ll be sitting in a small B&B in Kiefersfelden next to the Austrian border…

This year I┬┤m going to explore a new country by bike – Italy. I┬┤ve been there several times -as a child in Lido di Jesolo, with my first car in Toscany around Florence, with friends to the Lago di Garda – but never by bicycle…

As I┬┤ve started my planings around November I┬┤ve been always thinking I could take the alps via Fern- and Reschenpass as there are two shuttle options for cyclists.
But – there are also some hills to climb – and this is not the best option with a recumbent and a trailer having around 35 kg…

So some days ago I┬┤ve decided with the help of a good friend to make a complete new plan and booked new B&Bs or youth hostels along the new track – crossing the alps via Brennero.

Rolling down to Bolzano I┬┤m going to use the Etschtal cycle path – wich is also the Via Claudia Augusta – to Trento.
Here I will climb (or use the train) to the Lago di Caldonazzo and find my way down to Mestre along the beautiful cycle path Valsungana. So I┬┤d like to visit Venice.

Now back westwards ├Ź┬┤d like to see Verona where I haven┬┤t been for a long time.
After having visited Ferrara this first Part will end in Bologne.
