Where I stayed
At Luca's (couchsurfing)
Very kindly he said that if I needed any help, parts, or anything else just to call him. This was unbelievably kind especially having known me for such a short time
I was left to cover the remainder of the ride by myself and I was amazed by how straight some of the roads I discovered were. They literally went on for miles, occasionally ending in an intersection only to give way to another long straight road. Thankfully, the wind was from my side and progress was not quite as painful as yesterday. After lunch and the entire chocolate section of Netto I arrived in Ingolstadt an hour later.
Luca, an Italian engineer is my couchsurfing host tonight and he just left to pick up food for a barbeque. Like all of the people I've stayed with he is very trusting and I am in his house unattended.
I've been looking at my itinerary and it seems like beyond Belgrade on the 27th June, I will be doing a lot more camping. There are very few coucsurfers in Serbia, Romania and Bulgaria. Those which do exist certainly aren't concentrated in the sparsely populated parts that I will be going through.
But for now I have home comforts, it will be interesting seeing how I cope without a nice shower at the end of the day, an English speaking host, food made for me or even a bed. We will see, I'll enjoy civilzation while it lasts.
