Tomislavgrad to Makarska (51)
Last view over the area from the mountain peak.

Our room had no air condition so we slept with an open window. Part of the Motel was also a 24h gas station and some car wash. From time to time there was loud noise and we hadn’t a good sleep. However, to avoid the heat in the afternoon we stood up early and had breakfast at our room. Afterwards…

Bydgoszcz to Wągrowiec (25)

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.…

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.

On our two relax days in Mariestad we had mostly brilliant weather. Our camping ground was next to the Gamla Ekuddens nature reserve which is a famous spot among the local bird watchers. We could follow a path through this nature reserve leading us directly to the Marina of Mariestad. Next to the harbor was a small food court where…

Lidköping to Mariestad (15)
Sundown over lake Vänern seen from the campsite near Mariestad.

On our rest day in Lidköping it rained all day and mostly even heavy. So we had no motivation at all to explore the city. But our camping ground was well equipped so we took the chance to do our laundry. We spent most of the day in the public kitchen area and did some stuff on our notebooks. In…

Sabbatical 2021 – The equipment

Sabbatical 2021 – The equipment
Main parts of our kitchen equipment while bicycle travelling.

If you are on your bike and have to climb tough mountains you will be happy about every gramm less to carry with you. I think we all align on that 😉. Thus, one aspect in choosing what equipment to take with you is weight. The other one, of course is the packing size. Because everything should be more or…
