After leading 5 group tours in nice hotels on the Danube it was refreshing to set of in July with just a bike, a tent and the Bikeline book. I got a bit of time to explore some the spots I had not had time to visit when leading a group. I now have a few more little gems to share with customers if I lead the Blue River again.
This was a superb camp spot at the village of Au.
The Wachau region offers not only wine but lots of lovely fresh fruit.
The weirdest moment is this wooden alpine chalet next to a power station!
It all ended as I hit Bratislava in Slovakia from where I returned to Vienna by high speed catamaran.
