I wasn't particularly good at taking photo's on the trip.
I started out with enthusiasm - but long days and distances often provided a powerful dis-incentive for stopping, unfurling dry bags to get at the camera - or anything much else that would have impeded progress.
If I do another trip like this I will definitely take some kind of bar bag to make access to essential items (phone, camera, wallet, haribo) a little easier.
|The road through Decentis, looking back at the mountains where I had decended from the top of the Oberalp Pass.|
|More views heading down the valley from the Oberalp Pass.|
|Chur City Centre. Very Swiss.|
|Rorschach Harbour. I sat here outside a Thai restaurant watching fireworks on Swiss National / Yorkshire Day.|
|At the time I did not realise I was in Konstanz in Germany.|
|On the way from Kreuzlingen and Konstanz down the top-most section of the Rhine to Shaffhausen. This was probably the prettiest section of the river.|
|Old building in Shaffhausen. Don't know what it was.|
|Basel old town|
|Mending a puncture on the road I should not have ridden in France.|
|Catching the ferry to the opposite bank, on the evening I ended up cycling through woodland to reach Goddelau.|
|Best lunch menu, in Mainz. Might be why I broke a spoke straight afterwards.|
|View accross the Rhine on the run up to Koblenz.|
|German Corner in Koblenz where the Mosel joins the Rhine.|
|Mel would have been amused by this.|
|Breakfast in Koln.|
|Koln Cathedral and the tower I climbed on my 'day off''.|
|The bridge over the Rhine between Kleve and Emmerich. Little did I know I would be coming back the same way within an hour.|
|The main square in Nijmegen, which was full of Saturday night revellers when I cycled through the first time just after midnight when I was desperate for a hotel room.|
