From Slovakia I continued to cycle West into Austria. This was the second open border of the whole trip so far and I still felt a bit naughty freely cycling past the old border gates between the two countries. The Eurovelo 6, the cycle route, was clearly signposted as I entered Austria so onwards I went and was able to stay off the busy roads.
Just a wee sign is all you get for a border crossing now
The last of the Slovakian bicycle signs
....and after only 107 kilometres, I am in Vienna. Beautiful.
I got completely freaked out by this. How does he do it? Please comment if you have an idea and put me out of my misery!
Austria made life easy for me for week or so.... such amazing scenery and FLAT roads!
Me and my amazing Mum cycling through villages in Austria. Totally and utterly blown away by her and my Dad's support on this trip. Happy days!
Misty morning over the Danube
Dream-like cycle roads that follow the curves of this mighty river.
REALLY misty morning over the Danube!!
Each day on the road you just don't know where you will end up. This morning I arose to a heavy haar in an Orchard only reachable by boat or bicycle.
