Just over the road was a backerei, so I was able to have a couple of croissants for breakfast with my coffee.
The morning was filled with hills so was a bit of a workout.
As the day went on, the course flattened out and there was some very pleasant pedalling.
I wasn’t having any luck in finding anywhere to get lunch, until I found a village with a bar that was open. They didn’t have food on the menu but the lady very kindly made me a sandwich, which was very much appreciated!
Weather was fine all day.
I reached Gemünden am Main in the afternoon, so stopped off for some yogurt and banana nourishment.
There were a lot of train spotters on a bridge waiting for a certain train to arrive which turned up as I was cycling over the bridge, so I took a picture too. I was expecting a steam train, but this turned up. I am sure it is special somehow…
My destination for the evening was a campsite at Karlstadt am Main which was situated next to the river and a short walk from the town centre.
The campsite was only €7, which included free use of the open air pool. As soon as I had got the tent up I went for a swim and must have spent an hour in the pool as the sun was going down, with nice views of the tree lined hills.
After the swim I went into the town centre and had dinner – fish and rice, feeling healthy!
At midnight, the church here sounded 4 bells to signify the hour, then 24 bells for the time. Five minutes later a church with incorrect clock then rang 12.
Mitten to Karlstadt am Main, 84 km. Total so far = 1,130 km.

your journal makes for a great read! Looks like you’re making good progress. We’ll keep the beer cold for you. Weissbier that is, not any old German beer. See you next week! Hilla & Greg
Thanks Hilla! Looking forward to seeing you 🙂
