Before the World Cup gets rolling here in Berlin, I’m planning on taking a trip down south to Bodensee (Lake Constance). I was originally planning on going to Spain but have now decided on staying inside of Germany because I’ve still got 2 trips left on the 99 EUR 4-trip ticket they were selling at McDonald’s.
I’ll be taking my bike and camping around the lake. From what I’ve seen on the internet the infrastructure is really nice for biking/camping. I’m also glad I’ll be going outside of the high season. As the lake has about 300km of shoreline and I’m planning on doing the whole thing, I’ll probably stay about 10-14 days. This should give me time to take it easy and stay at a few places a couple days.
In 2000, I took a bike trip from Berlin to Breman which was about 350km. That took 4 days at a brisk pace. Last year Annika and I took our bikes up to Ueckermünde and then rode to and around Usedom. That was just a 5 day trip, though.
