Day 3: Before Saint Tropez to just past Cannes

Day 3 of our cycling tour was a great day. It began when we first opened our eyes and realised that it didn’t actually rain the night before. Our preparations turned out to be totally unnecessary but would be good practice for later in the trip. I set about working on breakfast, while Bert workedContinue reading “Day 3: Before Saint Tropez to just past Cannes”

Last Day in Vienna

Today was our last day in Vienna. We’re heading home on the train tomorrow at 9:30am. The connection in Salzburg will be tight; there are only 8 minutes to switch trains, so let’s hope the train from Vienna isn’t delayed. It’s been a great trip. We set out this morning to take a look atContinue reading “Last Day in Vienna”

Cafes and Christmas Markets

Day 6 was a mix of the old and the new. It was a day of Cafes and Christmas markets – and, of course, FOOD! Another lazy morning faced a serious crisis due to my mismanagement of our bread supplies. Luckily, we bought eggs yesterday and supplemented our sorry stash with some hard-boiled eggs. The successfulContinue reading “Cafes and Christmas Markets”

But much like one of those TV shows that annoyingly shows the ending first, before going back to 1 day earlier, you’re first going to have to read about our adventures on day 4. After eating some bread from aContinue reading “Zu den 3 Buchteln”

Vienna: Day 3

I thought I’d write a little bit about Vienna: Day 3. The day started off lazy (remember, we’d been up late at Mozart the night before!), so I went out to fetch some breakfast. I saw a denn’s Biomarkt (a German organic store) and decided to have a look inside as I passed. We’ve startedContinue reading “Vienna: Day 3”

One last good meal: Yakiniku at Jojoen

I went to the airport via Tokyo Station and finally got the chance to take Felicity up on her recommendation. Having only had a very light breakfast, I bought a mouth-watering but also stupidly expensive order of Yakiniku from Jojoen. I wrote down this recommendation from Felicity a while ago. Well she was right! ItContinue reading “One last good meal: Yakiniku at Jojoen”
