Sunny day is expected today but the start of the morning is around -3C. Cold but manageable. By midday it should warm up nicely. I was planning to take the Danube rout to Ulm. It’s suppose to be more than 90K. So I pushed off at around 830 so that I can reach Ulm before 4pm.
Getting on the Danube trail was more tricky that I thought. I was completely lost and could not find the route at all. So I decided to follow the Google Maps route which is somewhat shorter. Just as well.
Luckily there was bike path most of the way along the route. I was making great progress and actually reach Ulm at 230pm. Total distance was around 86KM.
There was nothing much to see on the way as I was following the main road most of the way to cut short the route.
I was hosted in a student shared apartment. My host Michael is studying to be a doctor and in his final year. He cooked late lunch for both of us. After that I went to the city to have a look see. The Christamas market at the Munster/ Cathedral was massive and so was the crowd. Can hardly walk inside the market square. The Munster was huge and very impressive. I am told it is the largest in the world. It was getting cold so I huddled up back in the apartment in my own room while listening to a great jazz concert downstairs. The student dorm is in a community building.
Tomorrow I will ride to Mengen and then onwards to Singen.
Total Distance : 3,730 KM
