Wrocław to Sobótka (29)
Nice resting place at a playground along EuroVelo 9.

Our stay in Wrocław was a bit of a wild story. During this stay we took a two day trip back to Germany for a family party. Meanwhile our bicycles were parked at the house of Alex’s coworker (Thanks to Szymon and his family). In addition, Alex had problems with his bicycle after changing the chain. It took three bicycle…

Gostyń to Wrocław (28)

Gostyń to Wrocław (28)
Definitely needed a rest - this "sklep" was like a miracel in the remote area.

We stayed only one night in Gostyń. Our stage to Wrocław would be more than 100km so we tried to start early. After breakfast at our hotel we got the bicycles ready. We wanted to continue the bicycle road R9 (Eurovelo 9) and the path led us to the Bazylika Świętogórska which was the first sight of the day. This…

Waiting for the train.

In Poznań we celebrated Alinas birthday. Therefore, we first did a little sightseeing tour and took a walk into the city. We came across some churches and passed the main station.

Wągrowiec to Poznań (26)

Wągrowiec to Poznań (26)
Snack stop in the forest - good shelter for the coming rain.

Wągrowiec is the smallest town we have been so far in Poland. But still it had something to offer. So we took a walk around the area. Right behind the sport park led a path to a small lake. Not far from there was a little promenade where you could rent pedal boats. But we continued our tour to the…

Bydgoszcz to Wągrowiec (25)
Break at the bus stop along the busy main road.

On our rest day in Bydgoszcz we relaxed at the camping ground. There were just two other people, after two German couples left with their camper in the morning. The camping ground was pretty nice but located in an industrial area which causes some noise. Nevertheless, we could enjoy the sun. Also included was the use of kayaks for free.…

Grudziądz to Bydgoszcz (24)
Colourful poland - so many flowers along the way from Grudziądz to Bydgoszcz.

On our rest day in Grudziądz the sun was shining very hot. But on our camping ground were a lot of trees which protected us from the heat. After breakfast we wanted to go into the city. The camping ground was around 6 km far from the center and we did not want to use our bicycles. But there was…

Malbork  to Grudziądz (23)
Our bikes at a resting place in a nice forest some kilometers before Grudziądz.

On our rest day in Malbork we decided to sleep long. After breakfast we did some stuff on our notebooks which was a bit difficult due to the bad wifi and also our mobile data connection. Next to the camping ground was a football field. Alex watched a game of the local club TP Nogat Malbork. They were down by…

Gdańsk to Malbork (22)
More colourful houses in Gdańsk.

For the ferry in the evening to Gdańsk we needed a negative Covid Test. Therefore we took a train to Stockholm as we had an appointment there for a test. Without any problems we got there and the test took only a few minutes. Before we took the train home we had lunch at a MAX fast food restaurant. Meanwhile…

Saltsjö-boo (Stockholm) to Nynäshamn (21)
Lunch at the library bus stop on the way to Nynäshamn.

In Stockholm we stayed for four days. On the first day we had to relax to recover from the tour before. Alex had still problems with the shift gear and tried to get it fixed at a bicycle repair shop but had no luck. So he had to postpone the repair. On the second day we explored Stockholm (it was…

Sundbyholm to Saltsjö-boo (Stockholm) (20)
Dark sky over some suburban area of Stockholm.

After our late breakfast in the sunshine Alex tried to clean some stuff from the broken chain cleaner. Then we were ready to explore a little bit of the surroundings. Near the camping ground was the longest sand beach of the Mälaren, but first we had a little snack at a small café next to the marina. After our walk…
