Carla and I happily arrived at destination on Friday 21 sept 4pm
after 1404 km on the bike from Geneva
19 days of discovery, little rain, stong headwinds (sometimes between 7 and 9), no flat tires, super nice people on the way
Wonderful churches, stainedglass windows, castles, city halls, Roman ruins
Managed to swim in the Aare, Rhein, lakes, swimming pools etc
Te Deum laudamus!
Thank the Heavens for the urge to travel,
Meet old cultures, watch world history unravel:
Silk road, trade routes, rivers, channels, market places,
Hoary ruins, vestiges of gods and races.
Cycling is a mode of Being,
Vital logic for dynamic living,
Crossing landscapes and linguistic fences,
Making new encounters, fresh experiences.
