Well we didn’t quite make it to Bratislava but after setting off at 2pm due to a few too many departing drinks last night we’re quite proud of the 75km it took to get us here!
We nearly stayed in Vienna thanks to cycling past a huge bank holiday rave at the side of the Donau that looked like too much fun to miss. Just another one of those things that reminds me why I love Vienna so much. Following the rave was at least 5km of naked people people just chilling out at the edge of the river, then being a bank holiday another 5km of barbeques where we felt like we were in Serbia already: who else cooks a full size pig in the local park.
Then came a looking stretch of cycle paths called donauauenradweg. Gliding along next to fields, a few swamps, a swans nest and untouched forest all drenched in the soft light of the setting sun was exactly what we had hoped this trip would be like.
We managed to set the tent up just before dark in a farmers field near hainburg and are now chilling out in the local restaurant. Today was a very good day.
