Bikes resting 3
Liubcova (June 13, 2015) Harry and I got up to have breakfast as promised by the guest house owner at 6:30. We were ready to roll by 7. Our hostess wheeled out our bikes for us to avoid any confrontation with her aggressive guard dog, Sammy. It wasn’t even 50 meters when our first dog […]

St. Stephen's Cathedral
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.
