Trans Europe Trip: Week 1 (Madrid, Spain to San Sebastian, Spain)

Johnny Lam : April 10, 2015 5:00 pm : Tour Series

I can’t believe the first week in Europe has ended so soon. Although we did not bike as much, we did get to see parts of Spain as planned. Before I get into that, I just wanted to share some big milestones in my life. Mini Milestones Got to go on a flight longer than more »

Trans Europe Trip: Week 2 (San Sebastian, Spain to Amboise, France)

Johnny Lam : April 17, 2015 2:55 pm : Tour Series

Biarritz (April 11, 2015) We woke up ready to ride on Saturday morning! Got our bikes loaded up and we left the hotel in search of breakfast. The one thing they lack in Europe as I’ve read online is that they don’t do high caloric breakfast like we do in the US. Instead, they always more »

Chateau Chambord

Trans Europe Trip: Week 3 (Amboise, France to Fourchambault, France)

Johnny Lam : April 24, 2015 12:00 pm : Tour Series

Cande-sur-Beuvrons (April 18, 2015) What a difference 24 hours make. After having one of the best riding day thus far, we endured a rain shower right after we got into our tent and through the night. The rain came in steady and consistent and was actually very helpful in putting both of us to sleep. more »

Trans Europe Trip: Week 4 (Nevers, France to Beaune, France)

Johnny Lam : May 1, 2015 5:00 pm : Tour Series

Nevers (April 25, 2015) Not a good start to our forced weekend. In a matter of hours, we endured a heavy rainstorm, lightning, and thunder. The rain was so heavy and steady that it woke us up in the middle of the night. It was hard to stay asleep as the rain just kept going more »

Bikes at Rheinfalls

Trans Europe Trip: Week 5 (Dole, France to Eschenz, Switzerland)

Johnny Lam : May 8, 2015 4:50 pm : Tour Series

Dole (May 2, 2015) It was a rough morning in Beaune. The rain stopped for quick minute to allow us to pack up our damp camping gear and roll out. I was certainly not feeling excited at this point and Harry knew it. To my surprise, the camp restaurant was open for breakfast so we more »

Open road

Trans Europe Trip: Week 6 (Tuttlingen, Germany to Donauworth, Germany)

Johnny Lam : May 17, 2015 5:42 am : Tour Series

Tuttlingen (May 9, 2015) Guess what? We got rain… Again! Both of us was pretty tired of it and was not in a good mood as a result. The rain was consistent but not plentiful but it brought about wind that thrashed our tents through the night and kept us awake even though we both more »

St. Stephen's Cathedral

Trans Europe Trip: Week 7 (Ingolstadt, Germany to Feldkirchen an der Donau, Austria)

Johnny Lam : May 25, 2015 9:38 am : Tour Series

Ingolstadt (May 16 -17, 2015) Our stay in Donauworth was pretty noisy at night. I remember still hearing the kids still playing outside well after 11PM. Harry confirmed this as well. Luckily I had my earplugs on so I was somewhat oblivious to their screams and laughter. As with most nights, the dew from the more »

Riding in Austria

Trans Europe Trip: Week 8 (Mauthausen, Austria to Gyor, Hungary)

Johnny Lam : May 30, 2015 12:22 pm : Tour Series

Mauthausen (May 23, 2015) The familiar sound of rain woke us up in the morning. This time, not as bad as the last time. It was pretty much sprinkling through-out the night and morning before it stopped long enough for us to pack up and move forward on our ride. We found our way back more »

Budapest Royal Palace

Trans Europe Trip: Week 9 (Komarom, Hungary to Mohacs, Hungary)

Johnny Lam : June 6, 2015 8:18 am : Tour Series

Komarom (May 30, 2015) While putting away my tent away in the morning, I found that hidden areas around the tent was covered with bugs that I referred to as earwigs. They even got between my pannier creases. That slowed my packing process as I had to shake them off. A couple ended up in more »

Donau from Romania

Trans Europe Trip: Week 10 (Osijek, Croatia to Divici, Romania)

Johnny Lam : June 12, 2015 8:50 am : Tour Series

Osijek, Croatia (June 6, 2015) We had an early jump this morning waking up at 5:30 again to beat the heat. We were packed up, had breakfast in the backyard of the pension, and left the place by 7AM. Our route out-of-town didn’t follow the Euro Velo 6 as our map had a on-road detour more »
