31.07.2010 Finally the sun is shining! (Passau - Linz, 105 km)
Nagyobb térképre váltás
8 o clock: the alarm is ringing. Time to wake up! After half an hour of struggle, we finally manage to get up and welcome the new day. As we know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, we prepare some peanutbutter-sandwiches. Gotta have sandwhiches with crunchy peanut butter!
Now, we are ready to go back on the road where we belong.. Just one more thing! Where is Manuel's helmet? AS it turned out, Marie's lovely roommates had been enjoying a couple of glasses that night, which ended in one of them passing out, and the others improvising a custom-made bee-fancy-dress, which apparently included Manuel's helmet. We are glad, that our helmet got involved in some Passau partying and take it of the sleeping roommate Martin.
The cycle paths to Linz are mostly flat, so we cycle a rather long distance in no time. In a place called Wilhering we stop at an old abbey in order to visit an art exibition of Fritz Froelich.(Check out some of his work if you don t know him!)
As we arrive in Linz, the first thing we check out is the historic center. Hmm.. alright... Mediocre. We therefore soon ask several pedestrians for directions to Altenberg, the part of town were Sarah is living, who was so kind to welcome us to her home (happy couchsurfing, hooray). Let us tell you one thing. If you think Altenberg is just a part of town, oh be warned. It technically is still within Linz, however it takes some 9 km of serious uphill cycling to get there. But it's just one of the many things you gotta do to get Europe's sexiest thighs. yeah!
