Another summer, another bicycle tour. Even in Covid times. Germany, cycling some of the grand rivers - Elbe, Main, Rhine and maybe a bit of the Danube.

I am an experienced cycle tourist and have done a number of long distance trips in the USA and Europe. This trip in late Spring / early Summer of 2022 is one that I have been waiting a couple of years to do, delayed because of Covid restrictions.
More cycling, this time in Spain, along the Ruta de la Plata, an ancient way from north to south of Spain. It was used by the Romans and is still used by pilgrims making their way north to Santiago de Compostella. More...
Another summer. More cycle touring. To start with a relatively short-ish tour along the Baltic Coast of Poland to the German border, and then south along the Oder River, then over to the Elba River on on to Prague in the Czech Republic. Then home.
In the early autumn I find myself cycling the French (most of it) and then the Portuguese Camino routes, to and from Santiago de Compostela. There is a variety of traditional Camino routes, reflecting the wide range of travellers and pilgrims who over the centuries have come from far and wide, heading towards Compostela, which is said to be the burial place of the Apostle James, son of Zebedee, whose remains somehow ended up in Santiago and were discovered by a shepherd guided by a star. Allegedly. Sound familiar ? Well, stranger things have happened, I guess, including Jesus going to the USA after his crucifixion to talk to a long lost tribe of Israelites who had ended up there and leading to the creation of the Mormon religion. I suppose Apostle James ending up in Santiago doesn’t seem any more odd or unlikely ?!
