Woken at 7am by the bells ringing and again at 7.45 by children playing in the playground of the school next to the campsite. The 7am bell is obviously something that happens throughout the country and I suppose gets everyone to work and school on time - no excuses! An early start on a cold, but sunny morning meant we were in Innsbruck by 10. Beautiful city, but we got completely ripped off by an internet cafe - 25 pounds for less than an hour. (That will teach us to check the price before starting writing) Decided to crack on with the cycling to ease our frustration and continuing on the flat path along the river made really quick progress. By lunch 30 miles in however, we realised that whilst it was lovely and flat, cycling is still tiring and following the river and a motorway was actually a bit boring and we had slipped into just counting the miles down. we eased the boredom of the next 20miles by me telling Mikey the story of the book I have just read. Having a hot chocolate in the subshine in Worgl we agreed to try and go a bit further than Kufstien the end of the bike path in order to get to Salzburg tommorow and then have a rest day on Friday. We stocked up with food in the town and turning off towards Ebbs away from the river the scenery was incredible. Unfortunately the distance was much greater than anticipated and also UPHILL! Reaching the campsite in Walchsee, we realised that we had done 67miles and really felt it. A lakeside camp in the moonlight with another lovely shower and some cheeky ducks surrounding us made it ok though. This time, Mikey cooked pork medalians and red cabbage for supper!!
