    View of the Rhine. Close to public transit.

    Great location. A little noisy at night. Building creaks with movement. Breakfast expensive for what's offered.

    Up today around 8. We have to be out of here by noon which is fine since we'll go directly to the boat from here. Mom packs her "trunks" for the last time. I finish writing on the blog and help organize for our departure. Karen makes us coffee in the room using the hot water boiler supplied on each floor and the coffee bags we bought back in Erfert …

    This morning brings us our first sunshine since we started. Not a cloud in the sky. Now we another issue. A conundrum you might say. For it is breakfast time and our only alternative seems to be a $50 breakfast for two at the Krafft-Basel Hotel. Unbelievably, I caved. I attempt to justify it by vowing to stuff ourselves at breakfast an eat nothing …

    Today we begin our longest train journey of our vacation, 7 hours. It begins at precisely 8:00am with a three hour trip to Ulm, one hour layover and another three hour ride to Basel. We were up, dressed, packed (remember, we don't open our suitcases) and down for breakfast by 7am. I can't miss a free breakfast so we slam it down in 15 minutes and …

    Its always a little awkward doing this wild camping thing. Its not officially illigal, but its definitely not somethig that parents teach their kids. When jan climbed out the tent this morning, he startled an early morning dog walker who wasnt quite sure what to make of the situation.
    We packed up rather quickly after that, and breakfasted on the almighty coco-pops. Om-nom-nom! We never buy this **** at home, but on a bike tour, we can ...

    ... death cos I was so hungry.
    We wolfed down our food in 5 minutes flat, I can't say if it was any good, and as it was soon to get dark, started actively hunting for a place to pitch the tent. After another 10km or so, we found ourselves in rheinfelden, literally on the banks of the rhine. Cant complain, the spot was pretty. With only beer and wine at hand, we had to make do, and shortly after dark we were passed ...
