Balkans 2016 – Day 78 : Singen to Waldshut, Germany

It feels surreal that I am at the end of my incredible tour. It’s seems like 78 Days just went in a flash. Today I plan to ride to Waldshut which is on the Rhine and just across from Switzerland. In fact I will be in and out of Switzerland and Germany the whole day long. 

I had an fantastic and comfortable stay at Ingo’s parents place in Singen. I had breakfast with Hiedi and Winfried and push off at around 9am. The weather is foggy like yesterday. It was not as cold though so it’s a good thing. 

The landscape and scenery was more or less the same. Some small towns and country farm lands. However, the falls at Rheinfall was spectacular even in fog. I imagine it to be even more spectacular when you can see it fully. 

The mapped ride via Google states 62KM but in the end I think I cycled around 75KM. I managed to get a great deal at a guest house in Waldshut so I was not in a hurry. In the end I arrive at the guest house at around 2:45 pm. 

After checking in I cycled to the city to buy some grocery for dinner. Did some planning for tomorrow’s ride to Basel. Just one more sleep before my last day of the tour.  I had a blast and a wonderful experience and a fantastic time. Looking forward to be see my family in Basel. 

Total Distance : 3,960KM
