On the way home by train

Well, we rode our last kilometres to the Munich train station and are on our long three-train-and-six-hour journey back to Frankfurt. I’m looking forward to seeing Jelena and sleeping in my own bed.

I whipped up some oats and then mixed them with fried French salami and garlic. We also had leftover ciabatta with butter, Tiroler ham, and some youngContinue reading “Day 6: Onward through Genoa and up the mountains!”

Day 5: From Ventimiglia to outside of Genoa

Yesterday we completed our best day of cycling yet. Amazing views, personal records broken, and great food. I know it’s a little out of order but I’ll come back to the other days later. We started the day around Ventimiglia, a town more or less on the Italian border. I transfered trains there during myContinue reading “Day 5: From Ventimiglia to outside of Genoa”
